Not all headsets are created equal. The right headset recommendation means even more freedom in mobile data collection and error-free speech dialog. Therefore, we have worked out our recommendations for headset/hardware combinations especially for use with smatrix speech recognition and would like to present them below.
Wired, monaural (one earpiece) headset with USB connection
Bluetooth wireless headset with digital noise cancellation
We would like to advise against using smatrix without a headset, as the recording via the internal microphone of the devices is not sufficient for flawless speech recognition.
Headsets can be connected to your device via a USB-C cable as well as via Bluetooth. smatrix supports both connection types. It is less recommended to use headsets with 3.5 mm jack plugs, since these plugs move in the jack and can cause crackling noises.
To ensure no question is left unanswered, we regularly compile the most frequently asked questions and answers about using smatrix agroscience on our FAQ page. But please don't hesitate to contact us if your question is not listed.
