Core Sound Low Cost Binaural Microphones and
Low Cost Stealthy Cardioid Microphones (tm)
DESCRIPTION & MOUNTING OPTIONS

The Low Cost Binaural and Low Cost Stealthy Cardioid mics look identical except for vent holes at the base of the Stealthy Cardioid mic shell.

The two microphone cartridges are each mounted in their own satin-black metal shell. The shell is approximately the size of a jelly bean: roughly a quarter-inch (.6 cm) in diameter and a half-inch (1.2 cm) long. Being all metal, the microphone mounts are very durable. The black finish is heat-fused plastic and is much more durable than paint. Removable black light-duty foam windscreens are provided. Heavy duty windscreens are available.

The microphone cable can enter the shell in one of two locations: the side or the bottom. For the side cable option, the shell has a miniature alligator clip attached to its base. The clip can be used to attach the microphones to any convenient mounting surface, including your eyeglasses, lapels, collar, shoulder, hats, headband, lighting grids and many others. The alligator clips are finished in black and their handles are covered with a pliable black plastic.

For the bottom cable option (Low Cost Binaural mics only), the cable enters the shell from the bottom of the shell, on the surface opposite the microphone face. This allows you to easily insert the microphones into a set of elastic eyeglass holders ("Croakies"), sew them in a bandana or mount them in a hat. They have no alligator clips so you have to be creative about how you plan to mount them. You can use velcro strips, double sided foam tape or whatever you can dream up!

A very flexible shielded cable exits the base of each tube toward the rear of your head. The cables from the two microphones join into a single cable roughly twelve inches from the microphones. The cable runs for six feet and terminates in a gold-plated 1/8" (3.5mm) mini-stereo phone plug -- other connectors can be supplied on request. (October 4, 2002: A high quality right angle plug is now available as an option.)

If necessary, the cable can be easily split for its entire length, so that the microphones can be separated as much as 12-feet apart. This is especially useful if you use the microphones for interviews: one microphone can be mounted on the interviewer and the other on the interviewee.
