Microphone Suppression Kit – Defeats Hidden Microphones
Product Code: PBNMSK – Microphone Suppression Kit
The Microphone Suppression Kit uses silent Ultrasonic waves which can defeat all types of Digital Microphones and protect upto 3.5 Metres square of space inside an office or a meeting room. (3.5 metres protection based on Primary Suppressor and Ultra Sonic Speaker being activated) 2.3 metres if using only Primary Suppressor.
The MSK creates a virtual wall between asset and threat and ensures confidential communications cannot be secretly recorded.
MSK distributes a generated Copyrighted algorithm ultrasonic signal, transmitted through a speaker with optional power modes including a Turbo Mode.
MSK has a variety of modes to protect against all types of Microphones.
MSK is equipped with a speech-like acoustic silencer in addition to the ultrasonic capabilities.
By far the most common threat, is the Digital Microphone, in the event of a laser Microphone or an analog microphone, the additional speech like acoustic silencer (sound mode) is required for maximum protection against all types of Microphones: Digital, Analog & Laser. In addition of a digital recorder is secreted and cannot be penetrated by ultra-sonic mode, the additional audible mode at low volume will ensure the threat is absorbed by both modes operating simultaneously.
The device should be placed so that the transducers be directed towards possible location of eavesdropping devices (tape recorders, microphone, “bugs” etc.), for example, towards the new visitors, the threats which cannot be sterilized.
Position the Primary device toward the target within 2 metres from where the target will be contained. Position the Ultra sonic speaker 1 metre closer to the target but aim from the side of the target and this will create a fluid wall of Virtual suppression against microphones and prevent any unwanted eaves dropping devices from recording any audio.
The optimal distance from the transducers to microphone of the eavesdropping device is up to 2.3 meters + upto 1.2 metres ( Total 3.5m Square) with the additional Ultra Sonic speaker. One additional Ultra Sonic speaker can be attached to the MSK.
The above information is relative to a typical threat scenario in an office environment, depending on the environment and number of threats, MSK can have an additional 3 ultra sonic speakers per suppressor, this enables the MSK to be used in bigger spaces and aimed toward multiple threats.
TSCM Professionals who perform bug sweeps on behalf of clients in offices are the natural market for this product as the solution solves the biggest threat where Securing confidential meetings are concerned.
MSK provides real time protection against microphones and solves the threat of persons taking a covert audio recorder or mobile phone voice recorder into a meeting.
Niche Surveillance resellers sell our solutions worldwide but in the instance of MSK; We reserve the right to supply any company who cannot demonstrate the product instore/in-person – Video demonstrations can also be produced.
The MSK needs to be demonstrated to potential users as the solution is a professional system which needs to be used correctly in order to protect the user’s interests. Demonstrating the system can be done in a matter of minutes, resellers must demonstrate the distance parameters the devices can protect to ensure the end users position the devices correctly.

Security Consultants represent the most common sales cycle for this product, due to this, the value chain is more valuable as the consultant will be tasked with finding such a solution and ensuring it is set up correctly to protect the assets.
Security Consultants from many sectors recognize the obvious advantages of creating a virtual wall to prevent information leakage through a common threat such as an unauthorized Mobile phone/audio device recording during a confidential meeting.
MSK Consulting – Consultant Entry & Support
MSK Consulting is the primary channel for MSK due to the need for Security Consultants to be involved in the supply chain process.
We seek to expand our network of Security Consultants Worldwide.
Our team is able to provide unrivalled support to consultants to ensure your clients’ needs are covered, we provide remote analysis to Consultants as we understand the process of recommending MSK needs to be factored based on specific environments.
One system we use is called an Audio Protection Survey (APS) which is normally performed by the consultant during a site visit to the client, the survey consists of:
- Length, Width and Height of rooms which need protecting.
- Images documenting all the contents of the room – (Consultants normally blur out any pedigree data to protect the client’s identity)
- Identify the threat areas of the room. – In many cases a whole room does not need protection since the threat is normally confined to a specific area in the room.
With the above information our Engineers are able to recommend the number of units required to protect the room or/and the threat zones detailed in the Audio Protection survey.
The Surveys have been conducted since the launch of this system in May 2018 and we have many examples of Audio Protection surveys which we can provide to Consultants to ensure they document surveys correctly.
The recommended entry method for Consultants and the most successful to date is demonstrating the MSK to clients.
Consultants who demonstrate the systems to clients are able to provide onsite demonstrations based on the specific environments which need protection, once these demonstrations take place consultants can identify the requirements needed for each particular client.
We provide this system on an OEM basis to a number of security consultancies, we are able to offer complete rebrand solutions based on just 20 units.
We also provide the system in a bespoke format, additional accessories such as hard shell cases or other TSCM systems which complement MSK, such as, PBNEXPERT bug detector.
Due to the nature of the system we supply the devices with no branding on the systems, this enables distributors to develop markets with complete protection.
Our Consultant Channel has no MOQ as the consultant market operates on a client by client basis where each end user may have varying needs.
We supply the systems in a range of formats for a variety of environments:
Threat 1: Typical office scenario whereby Asset is directly facing the threat:
For this type of threat we recommend 1 Primary Suppressor + 1 Additional Speaker – Primary Suppressor facing threat and additional speaker aimed toward threat from the side. (use different heights to create more fluid protection – Desk height and under desk height to account for threats being concealed in bags/out of sight.
Threat 2: Office scenario with Asset facing multiple threats:
For this type of threat we recommend 1 Primary Suppressor + 2 Additional speakers – Primary suppressor facing threat and additional speakers either side of threat aimed toward them.
PBNMSK may be used with upto 4 speakers which can increase the protection area greatly and account for devices which may be concealed, the additional speakers will also increase the protection area by upto 1.2 per speaker.
