“How Personal Microphones Can Save Your Health,â€? a FREE educational article published by JDB Sound Acoustics and sponsored by Point Source Audio, is a timely reminder about proper microphone etiquette during this heightened period of deadly flu viruses.
JDB Sound Acoustics, an acoustics consulting firm and Point Source Audio (PSA), a specialty manufacturer of earset microphones today officially announced the availability of the newly revised â€œHow Personal Microphones Can Save Your Health,â€? a FREE article to help remind all microphone users about the importance of good microphone etiquette: following proper guidelines in using and cleaning microphonesâ€”and to avoid sharing microphones if at all possible. The article is available for immediate download at www.jdbsound.com and www.point-sourceaudio.com.
Joseph De Buglio, principal consultant of JDB Sound Acoustics and author of the article, stresses that despite taking all precautions there are of course no guarantees against catching a troublesome cold or flu virus. But there is one thing all microphone users can do to help prevent the spread of viruses: stop sharing microphones. De Buglio highlights the urgent need for vocal professionals to immediately re-think the risky practice of sharing microphones.
â€œThe strategies presented in my article are common sense but their practices are not always so, said De Buglio. Personal microphones are not a luxury; they are a necessity for the professional speaker or performer. It was not so long ago that the idea of owning your own â€˜personal computerâ€™ seemed improbable, but now, their pervasiveness is undeniable.â€?
Microphones provided by public facilities can expose users to germs and viruses that can incubate for days. The article encourages vocalists, pastors, and professional speakers of all types to own their own microphone. This not only helps professionals enhance their craft, but more importantly, can protect their healthâ€”especially in light of the particularly dangerous H1N1 virus. De Buglio suggests that previously, the cost of professional quality microphones have made it prohibitive for most people to own their own microphone, but many new types of quality microphones cost about as much as an earphone and are extremely affordable to own.
