The HHB FlashMic DRM85 is an ingenious solution for the field journalist or sample-gathering musician, that is essentially an omnidirectional condenser microphone with a built-in 1GB flash memory recorder, powered by 2 "AA" batteries.
The FlashMic DRM85 audio, recorded as Linear PCM or MPEG 1 Layer 2 data, is written to memory in either the BWF uncompressed or .mp2 compressed file formats. A total of 18 hrs. of recording time is available in the low-res compressed format.
The FlashMic DRM85 is further equipped with a small, clear LCD, and a 1.1 or 2.0 compliant mini-USB port, enabling quick and simplified data transfer to a computer for editing and consolidation. A headphone output with a dedicated volume control is available as well.
