EarSight microphones

Earsight microphone collection

Earsight is a brand new stereo microphone, an exclusive Immersive Soundscapes product, handcrafted in France.
This microphone will increase the capacity of your mobile recorder as it is extremely sensitive and has a remarkably low self noise (<14dBa), not to mention his capacity to record in ultra wide stereo. This is very effective for nature recording, soundscapes, ASMR, binaural…

Ultra compact, it can be stored in the bag of your recorder or fit in a pocket. It’s discretion enables you to capture sounds that are not possible with a conventional microphone. The sound is equivalent of EM272 primo capsules (Lom Usi, Fel Clippy, 3Dio…) but it’s not the EM272 capsule, I made a lot of research and tests to find another option to mainstream primo capsules with perfect sound quality and a bit more sensitive to primo ones (see the spectrogram below).

MOUNTING OPTIONS:

You have different solutions for mounting:

  • Stereo bar with supports and tripod (lot of weight to carry for small microphone)
  • two magic arms with clamp attached on tripod legs (lot of weight too)
  • The best solution for the moment is to tape them on the support, fast, light and very simple to do.
