New! The next generation in Binaural In-ear microphones have 17dB less noise (hiss), 10dB more sensitivity and 10dB higher max SPL than our standard model. They measure 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 these 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 similiar mics.

The MS-TFB-2 Sound Professionals In-Ear Binaural microphones are mounted in extremely comfortable super-soft, In-Ear holders that slip right into the ear structure. Why put microphone here you ask?

Pretty simple, really. There have been many 'binaural' microphone designs over the years.......mics built into fake heads, built into Croakies, made with clips for attaching to glasses, built into headphones and earbuds.
 
All of these have one flaw......none actually put the mic element in the best possible place for the most realistic recording within the Pinna (the part of the human ear that is visible the folds on the outside). Even earbud Binaurals have the mic element outside the Pinna. Because everyone's Pinna is unique, recording made in your own ears will sound the most realistic.
 
These mics put the mic element right next to the ear canal, well within the Pinna. This results in the most realistic recording possible, from the perspective of the person wearing them.
 
While recording, your hearing is not impaired, so you can enjoy the sound of the performance while making very realistic recording. The cables terminate in a stereo 1/8" (3.5mm) gold-plated miniplug. Black cable models have straight plugs, Beige cables use right-angle plugs.

Recommended accessories:

    - Windscreens: Since there are some variances in the shape of the human ear, and especially for customers with larger than average ears, and/or for windy situations, soft foam windscreens are available. These windscreens are acoustically transparent, and allow sound to pass through to your ears and the microphones completely unchanged. They are available in natural off-white (beige) color and in standard black. These are also handy for those recordists who need the microphones to be very unobtrusive as they completely cover the mic element.
    - Microphone power supply (Battery Modules): For loud recording situations, the mics need more power than typical recorder can provide. You can also use battery module to adjust bass response and adjust levels. See the details on each module for features and specifications.

Features:

      - Flat frequency response
      - Extremely low noise for the quietest recordings (75dB signal to noise ratio)
      - Very high sensitivity -32dB
      - High maximum sound pressure level (SPL): 115dB with normal "plug-in-power" and 130dB with one of our power modules
      - Omni-directional pickup pattern
      - Small size
      - Right angle miniplug
      - Can be used directly with any recorder that has "plug-in-power" or with battery module
      - Produces extremely realistic recording
