The Nighthawk is a new tool for content developers and field personnel who need a Bluetooth earphone solution with reliable wireless recording capability for their Apple and Android smartphones.

The app is available free for Apple products with the purchase of the Nighthawk Microphone Combo System.

Users can clip the microphone to themselves, the interview subject, or capture any other audio and record audio to video on their smartphone from up to 120 feet away.

The company stated that the “audio level is consistent and of professional quality making the Nighthawk a perfect companion for conducting professional interviews, recording lectures, meetings, or taking simple voice memos.” An integrated recording start/stop function lets users control recordings.

• Push-to-talk (PTT) button for two-way radio communications
• In-car speaker kit
• MP3 player controller
