The Omni-Directional Stereo Pen Microphone (20 Hz to 20 kHz) from Microphone Madness is a handmade microphone made of high-quality materials. The outer casing of two BIC pens has been modified and designed for maximum recording performance. Installed at the tip of each pen is a high grade element that is used in the VIPER Binaural Stereo Microphone. Exiting the bottom of every pen housing is a Mogami balanced microphone cable that terminates into a 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo mini-plug. The stereo pen microphone is excellent for hands free applications such as lectures, live music recording and many more.
This microphone has a naturally crisp sound, providing deep bass, smooth mid-range and clean high-range with a frequency response of typically 2 dB. The pen microphone can be easily plugged into any Minidisc, Dat or analog recorder that supplies a bias voltage of between 1.5 to 10 VDC (also known as plug-in power) at the microphone input jack.
