Bubblebee Industries Sidekick 3 IFB Monitor

Saturday, 5 June 2021  |  Will

Bubblebee Industries have been listening and have heard you loud and clear. The ultimate communications IFB ear-piece for comfort and speech intelligibility has received a well-deserved upgrade: introducing The Sidekick 3 IFB In-Ear Monitor.

The Bubblebee Sidekick 3 In-Ear IFB Monitor is a virtually invisible IFB cuing & communications earpiece designed to deliver a superior experience in invisibility, comfort and sound intelligibility. They have improved on a lot of things that you've asked for, most notably the driver. It features the most advanced driver technology ever in such a small earpiece. The new durable and resilient transducers have been tested extensively with up to 3 x higher tolerances than previous versions... and they sailed through with flying colours.

NEW DRIVER TECHNOLOGY

IMPROVED MICRO-DRIVER
The Sidekick 3 features BBI's best ever micro speaker driver solution, where the entire driver fits comfortably in the ear canal. This eliminates the need for acoustic tubes, resulting in practically invisible, crystal-clear cues, even in noisy environments.

LEVEL UP YOUR AUDIO
The newly designed driver has an extended frequency response, delivering an entirely improved listening experience. The Sidekick 3 is tough and resilient, tested with up to 3 x higher tolerances than previous Sidekick versions.

VERSATILE VOLUME CONTROL
A lower impedance driver allows a greater range of volume control so The Sidekick 3 can be used just as easily with a lower output device, such as directly plugged into a mobile phone, as it can with professional IFB and IEM receivers.

SWITCH THE DRIVER BETWEEN EARS

UNIVERSAL FIT
Gone are the days of Mono L and Mono R. The Sidekick 3 has a universal fit for either ear.

A NEW CABLE LOOP
Our unique new cable loop guides the cable neatly behind the ear, hidden from sight, so that The Sidekick 3 is virtually invisible when worn correctly.

INVISIBLE
The Sidekick 3 driver unit is so small that it is not visible when worn in the ear. Coupled with the transparent cable, this makes it incredibly hard to see from most angles.

DISCREET
The Sidekick 3's cable is 44% thinner than the first generation cable with a diameter of only 33μm. The colour neutral cable easily blends into almost any background without being noticed on camera.

NEW EARTIP

HIGH QUALITY ROUND SOUND
Bubblebee Industries have added a new “Round” eartip which provides an increase in frequency definition in the lower frequencies, for a much more rounded sound. The original Satellite and Christmas Tree eartips are still included with your Sidekick 3 so that you can choose just the right amount of ambience for the job.

AVAILABLE IN THE SIDEKICK SPARES KIT
If you'd like the new "Round" eartip for your Sidekick V1 or V2, BBI have added the new "Round" eartip to our Sidekick Spares Kit so you can experience an increased frequency definition using older generations of The Sidekick.
