Earphone-integrated condenser microphone for easy binaural recording.
■ Binaural microphone and earphones
・Small, high-performance stereo condenser microphone with integrated earphones.
・By setting it in your ear and recording, you can listen to the sound around 360 degrees in a realistic localization. Since binaural recording can be easily performed, the enjoyment of field recording by combining with a portable recorder such as the R-05 or R-09 series is further expanded. The microphone operates with plug-in power supplied from the R-05 or R-09 series. Of course, the high-quality earphones are integrated, so you can monitor while recording.
What is binaural recording?
・Binaural recording is a recording method that assumes listening through headphones. By recording under conditions close to the human ear, you can reproduce the sense of reality as it was recorded when played through headphones or earphones. Normal stereo recording is a recording method that is supposed to be heard through speakers, so if you listen with headphones you will not be able to accurately reproduce the localization, or if you listen for a long time, you will be tired. However, if you listen to the sound recorded by binaural recording with headphones or earphones, you can enjoy a realistic sound that feels like a 3D space that you cannot taste with stereo recording.
