HHB DRM85 Overview

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.
