Binaural Microphones Fixed!

Ever since I started recording with my binaural microphones, I thought the quality was a little poor.

This weekend, something possessed me to make another set to see if the recordings could be better. I still had several WM-61A capsules from my original purchase, so I decided to give it a shot.

Here are two audio files. One was created using the old set, and the other using the new set. Both were recorded with the Zoom H2:

Don’t forget to use headphones for the full effect. I apologize for the slight crackling on the old microphone recording. I think the connection had gone bad as well.

I’m not sure as to what caused the difference—soldering? Bad capsules? I’m just happy the result is much better!

One thought on “Binaural Microphones Fixed!”

  1. Check connections before recording. Delete defective recordings. Try again, good take-then save. Audio weak, voice not copyable. I’ve done this for decades.
