The SP-SPSM-2 is an Omnidirectional stereo microphone and is similar to the SP-SPSM-1 except that it includes removable clip on the back of the mic and has 36 inch output cable that plugs directly into the recorder or battery module. In situations where mechanical noise emanating from the recorder is problem, the 36 inch cable on the SP-SPSM-2 will keep this noise from being picked up by the microphone.
The microphone is very small measuring approximately 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. 36 inch stereo cable exits the microphone at the base and is terminated in gold plated straight stereo mini plug. 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.
- Signal To Noise Ratio: 58 dB, kHz at Pa - Dynamic Range: 76dB without battery module, 91dB with battery module Frequency Response: 20 20,000 Hz - Open Circuit Sensitivity: -42 dB (5.6 mV) re 1V at Pa - Maximum Input Sound Level: 105 dB SPL, kHz at 1% T.H.D. (120dB when powered by our battery module)
- Flat frequency response Can be powered by recorder that has "plug-in-power" or battery module Provides excellent performance Vs cost - Premium windscreens included
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.
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.
