New! The next generation Binaural microphone is here! It has 17dB less noise (hiss), 10dB more sensitivity and 10dB higher max SPL than our standard microphones. It measures an amazing 19dB of equivalent self noise. This means that your recording will have noticeably less background hiss and greater dynamic range than previously possible with in-ear binaural microphones! Compare this to the best omnidirectional microphones anywhere and you will see why these offer the highest level of performance at fraction of the cost of other similar mics.
Now, for the first time, you can get a Binaural effect similar to what you get when you put mics in your ears – without using your own ears! Our pro model Binaural microphone is powered by normal 48 volt phantom power, supplied by most professional digital recorders/cameras and interfaces (call us at 800-213-3021 if you are not sure if your device has phantom power). The microphone has a threaded ring on the connector that locks onto the base. The base can rest on a flat surface or you can attach it to a standard camera tripod (a small bendable tripod is included). It can also be attached to a camera hot shoe with an optional mount.
The microphone depth is adjustable (in the ears) by sliding the ears in or out as desired. This allows you to tune the sound of the mics to your taste. The earsï¾ can be removed from the microphone if you would prefer to make a stereo recording instead of a Binaural recording.
