Core Sound High End Binaural microphone set (using DPA 4060/4061 capsules)
INTRODUCTION

Core Sound is very pleased to announce its new High End Binaural microphone (HEB) set, using DPA's DPA4060 and DPA4061 miniature omnidirectional microphones. We believe these to be the very best binaural microphones available anywhere!

A Bit Of Binaural Microphone History

Our very popular Core Sound Binaural (CSB) microphones set, first introduced in 1990, provides sonic performance unmatched at its entry-level price range. Using extensively modified and matched Matsushita microphone capsules, it offers amazing fidelity and very low distortion even when recording extremely loud sound sources. Over the years it's evolved into a rugged and reliable recording tool for professional and hobbyist tapers alike, a standard for more than fifteen years. The Matsushita capsules however, have their design limits, beyond which it doesn't make sense to modify them. To achieve the goal of a significantly lower self-noise and a more transparent high frequency response, almost everything in the capsule would have to be scrapped except the diaphragm!

We searched for alternatives and discovered DPA's wonderful 4060-series microphones. (DPA is the current manufacturer of the world-class Bruel & Kjaer line of commercial microphones.) The 4061 (and its siblings, the more sensitive 4060 and less sensitive 4062) are miniature prepolarized ("electret") condensor omnidirectional microphones designed for professional use in theatres and broadcasting. When compared to the Core Sound Binaurals, their lower self noise and more transparent high frequency response give them a very pleasant advantage in sound quality. When compared to full-sized matched microphone pairs from Microtech-Gefell, Neumann, Schoeps, AKG and Audio-Technica, you'll discover that the sonic advantage comes with a surprisingly reasonable price tag.

Core Sound microphones have been sold to customers all over the world, including the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, England, Scotland, Norway, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Serbia and many others. They are in use by professional sound studios, research labs, commercial broadcast facilities, multi-media production houses and thousands of avid concert tapers.
