The MM-BSM-8 In-Ear Binaural Stereo Microphones from Microphone Madness are binaural in-ear stereo microphones that terminate with a 1/8" stereo mini-jack connector. They can be used to capture audio that replicates human hearing with authentic, true-to-life stereo imagery for audio recorders supplying a bias voltage of between 1.5 to 10 VDC (also known as plug-in power). In addition, the microphones do not block your hearing ability.

These microphones are designed to be worn like headphones to achieve the most accurate stereo placement possible and offer a naturally crisp sound, providing deep bass, smooth mid-range, and clean high-frequencies for detailed recordings. The MM-BSM-8 In-Ear Binaural Stereo Microphones are compatible with (but not limited to) the following recorders: Edirol R9, Kodak Zi8 HD pocket video camera, Olympus DS-40, Olympus LS-10, Tascam DR-01, Tascam DR-03, Tascam DR-07, Yamaha CX, Zoom H1, Zoom H2, and Zoom H4N.

Stereo In-Ear Design

The binaural design of the microphones allows 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 10 VDC (also known as plug-in power).

Compatible Recorders

The mic is compatible with the Edirol R9, Kodak Zi8 HD pocket video camera, Olympus DS-40, Olympus LS-10, Tascam DR-01, Tascam DR-03, Tascam DR-07, Yamaha CX, Zoom H1, Zoom H2 and Zoom H4N and many more recorders with mini-jack mic inputs offering plug-in power.

question

How much handling noise (breathing, swallowing, wind, etc) is there with these?Also, what kind of gain boost do they require in a pre-amp, and how noisy do they get?
Asked by: Anonymous
They are tiny and low cost, so self noise will be greater than expensive mics. Still, I have used them in normal environments (people, birds, etc.) with decent results. Wind can be a problem outdoors. I recommend wearing a light headband that covers the ears to minimize this.

question

At which level perceptuall these mikes affect ones hearing ability?
Asked by: Artak
Microphone Madness designed the BSM-8 in a way that doesn't affect one's hearing (unless it's literally being shoved down the ear canal). The BSM-8 ear tips are made of a soft silicone like material and can be worn for hours at a time.

question

I'd like to use these for frequency response measurements. Can you provide a calibration file for the binaural elements?
Asked by: Jason G.
I use these for frequency response measurements and they work fantastically well without any calibration file. I was mostly worried about imbalance between the channels but I did my best to measure the differences between the two and the tolerances were tight enough not to make any impact to my measurements.
