Binaural Stealth Recording Microphones
Binaural microphones are ideally suited for stealth taping at concerts. I have been hand building these microphones for years for many tapers around the world and their sonic quality speaks for itself. My previous company, which I sold after 27 years, specialized in electronic measurement and test, so don't think that I don't know what I'm doing! I purchase the microphone elements direct from Japan, test each one and the grade-offs are sold to hobbyists
who use them in wireless microphones and hobby kits.
Have a question?? Chances are I've answered one like it before - look here:
Well.. how do they actually sound??
Through the generous courtesy of Steve in Hawaii, here is a link to a recent show he did of Jack Johnson, Live at Waikiki Shell on April 20, 2008. Go to this link and you are presented with many download options. You can see just how "Live" the recordings sound! Great job, Steve!

And here are a couple of cuts I made, these are mp3 cuts so please be aware that they do not come anywhere close to the actual sonic quality that the mics are capable of - but many folks have asked. Recorded at an Ani Difranco concert from about mid stage, 30 rows back. (approx 750 kb files)
Lots of folks have written to me about how they love their mics and I have been totally remiss in not putting up their comments! Here's a few:
"I was awestruck with the amazing presence these mics provided, they totally put me back in the venue."
"Even though I am new to concert recording, I was easily able to patch together a pretty cool system. The recordings I have made so far are incredible, thanks!"
"...blows away microphones my room-mate bought for $230!"
And from a listener, "I still can't get over the quality of the recordings from this festival. I've listened to both days and I'd give these recordings 6 or more stars if I could! I've bought CDs in stores from live shows and while most are good, I find too many are below average. This one leaves them far behind!"
