Binaural Microphone


Soundman OKM II Classic including A3 Adapter

Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments.


  • Binaural stereo recording producing a stunning reproduction of the sound source, with outstanding spatial characteristics
  • Is omnidirectional electret condenser microphones
  • Is especially appropriate for live music recording
  • Is suitable for high quality speech recording
  • Durable plastic case that easily fits in a pocket
  • Allows hands free operation of other equipment while you record
  • Can also be used as a lavalier or boundary microphone
  • Are suitable for LINE-Inputs with A3 adapter when recording loud sounds
  • a bass roll-off filter,
  • a -20dB attenuation pad, and a battery tester.
  • The OKM usually gets its power from the plug-in power available on most modern
  • mini-recorders, which is 1.5V.
  • The A3 supplies the microphones with a 6V charge, increasing headroom significantly and removing the need for plug-in power.
  • The interface can now be plugged into the microphone input or the line input (depending on sound pressure levels) which means a larger range of sound pressure levels can be recorded simply by changing the combination of input and the attenuator pad setting.
  • Any unwanted low frequency background noise can be filtered away using the bass roll-off filter.
  • The A3 adaptor is highly recommended for use with the OKM; again it is very small and fits between the OKM and the recording device.

Rode Stereo Video Mic


The Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a high quality stereo option for videographers, and is ideal for recording music, and the atmospheric ambience essential in building a realistic audio scene.
  • Based around a matched pair of high sensitivity ½”cardioid condenser capsules in a coincident XY pair, the Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a wide stereo image with natural depth.
  • The integrated shock mounting system provides superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise that can otherwise degrade the recording quality.
  • The lightweight yet robust multi-strand cable provides acoustic decoupling from the camera and offers significantly lower noise transference than traditional audio cable.
  • The user friendly designed rear of the microphone body features the power and equalisation controls, including a high pass filter at 75Hz which is designed to cut out the noise generated by air conditioning, traffic and other undesirable low frequency interference.
  • A -10dB PAD allows the user to reduce the sensitivity of the microphone, making it suitable for recording loud sound sources such as live music or at sporting events.
  • Features a +20dB level boost specifically designed to provide a higher quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, the typically low quality camera preamp level can be reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and much clearer recording.
