The Microphone Madness BSM-8 is a binaural in-ear stereo microphone. The microphone is designed and worn like headphones to achieve the most accurate stereo placement possible. The 1/8" connection is completely compatible with microphone inputs found on MiniDiscs, Dat recorders and analog portable recorders that supply a bias voltage of 1.5 to 10VDC (also known as plug in power). The microphone provides a signal response that features smooth mid-range, and clean high frequency response for maximum detail.

Stereo In-Ear Design
The binaural design of the microphones allow both capsules to mount in-ear to recreate the stereo perspective achieved by human hearing.
Single 1/8" (3.5mm) Output
Both elements feature shielded cables and terminate to a single stereo 1/8" output connector. The connector is compatible with microphone inputs that supply a bias voltage of 1.5 to 10VDC (also known as plug in power).

          Excellent mics for my Tascam D-60D. These mics require plugin power from your recorder, so bear that in mind. They give the impression of being hand-made, as one cord seemed nearly 2 inches longer than the other. Good sound, medium sensitivity... Birds and waterfalls come through just fine.

                If you want to record someone out in the open without them knowing you are recording them--this is the product for you.
                You can put them in your ears, or drape them across your shoulders. You can even hold the recording device in your hands, or have it obvious in your shirt pocket.
                The person standing across from you thinks that you have taken a break from listening to music.
                The BEST!!!

                Comments about Microphone Madness BSM-8 Stereo Binaural In-Ear Microphone:

                I waited a long time for these while they were on back-order. When I finally got them, the newer version does not look like the picture. The design doesn't have the over the ear piece anymore, and they look more like ear-buds. The parts look fairly high quality, but the construction looks anything but professional. However, I have tested them out and they do work well, including the binaural effect when listening in headphones. If I had to pick form or function, I would pick function, so I'm happy with these, just be prepared for the looks.

                Comments about Microphone Madness BSM-8 Stereo Binaural In-Ear Microphone:

                Well they really do look like convincing head phones, and the mics are decent enough for what you pay. Im sure you could probably create comparable results yourself using some of the DIY guides online, but i really just wanted something to take out of a box and record with.

                One of the best parts is that i do a lot of recording of ambiences for video, and it kind of unnerves people to see microphones, even if i'm not recording them. Being able to get some beach and forest sounds without having look like im spying on someone is great.

                One issue, is that theres no way to monitor your recordings because the mics are placed where you would put your headphones.... i guess kind of a duh, but checking your recordings needs to be figured out.
