Part #: SP-SPSM-1

The SP-SPSM-1 is an Omnidirectional stereo microphone that can be plugged directly into the mic input jack of your recorder and has no cables. It has an optional, removable, black lavaliere style clip available that can be used to attach the microphone to an article of clothing such as lapel or necktie or to any convenient mounting surface.

The microphone is very small measuring approximately 1.75" long and 1.5" wide. The upper portion of the microphone which houses the two microphone elements consists of high quality brass shell covered in black rubber, and is approximately 1/4" in diameter. The vertical, lower portion of the mic which plugs into the recorder is spring loaded to help prevent excess wear and tear on your recorder's input jacks. Removable premium black foam windscreens are provided at no additional cost.

In addition, there are several battery modules designed for this microphone that will give this microphone increased dynamic range and the ability to record loud sounds. More info on battery modules is located here.

General Information:

The Sound Professionals single point stereo microphones are small, stereo microphones that can be plugged into any recorder (DAT, MiniDisc or analog) that supplies bias voltage of between 1.5 and 10 Volts DC at the microphone input jack, commonly known as "plug in power". Many of the recorders on the market today include this feature.

When connected to your recorder in this manner, these microphones are perfect for recording lectures, business meetings, and musical performances when an easy to setup and use microphone is required. For situations that do require wider stereo separation, we recommend the Mini Binaurals or Mini Cardioids.

Battery modules (power supplies)
In certain recording situations, you may need separate power source for your microphones. Visit our Battery Module FAQ for more info on why you would want to use battery module. All of the single point stereo microphones are compatible with any of our battery power modules. See the battery module page for more details.

Sound Quality
The Sound Professionals microphone systems have an extended frequency response and very natural and accurate sound, providing deep, solid bass, smooth midrange and clean highs. They have very wide dynamic range, and will handle very high sound pressure levels without distortion or clipping. (See details above for more info). When combined with one of the battery modules, they are designed to operate into nominal impedance of 10K Ohms.

Made in the USA.

5 out of 5 stars Best basic microphone buy! 00/00/0000
Reviewer: Jim Stanko   ( from Blairstown, NJ US
This very unassuming mic is astonishingly capable. I've used it with an iRiver iHP-120 for live field recording (with permission) and it makes a very natural sounding, tonally well balanced CD quality stereo recording. It is probably possible to get a better mic, but I doubt it is possible to get a better mic for any where near the modest price! Don't think twice; just go fo it!

5 out of 5 stars great all around! 00/00/0000
Reviewer: A viewer   from East Texas
I've been using this mic for over a year and have found it very capable for such a small form factor. I'm currently using with a Sharp MD MT821 Minidisc recorder that is the size of a Minidisc. Getting around with this audio solution is a non-issue. The only issue you'll have is that being solidly connected to a recorder means any sound the recorder might make will be picked up. Something like an old Sharp 702 just won't work (if the old 701/702/722 still works at all ... UTOC of death heh.) Here is a Video of my Corvette using a Canon SD1100 IS camera for video and the SP-SPSM-1 mic on a Sharp MD for sound.
