Core Sound Low Cost Binaural Microphones and
Low Cost Stealthy Cardioid Microphones (tm)
HOW DO THEY COMPARE TO OUR MORE EXPENSIVE CORE SOUND BINAURAL MICS?

Compared to the Low Cost Binaurals, the modifications that we do on the more expensive Core Sound Binaurals add over 20 dB of dynamic range, lowers sensitivity, dramatically reduces distortion at higher sound pressure levels and flattens the frequency response. They're worth the money if you can afford them.

Here's what one customer said:

On April 30 you sent me a pair each of the your [Core Sound Binaural] and [Low Cost Binaural] microphones for me to try out.... I was going to try both sets and see which one worked best for my purposes, returning the other.

I have recorded about 10 hours worth of music with either set of microphones on a Sony MD R-50 [MZ-R50] recorder. Both sets of mikes worked very well. I record classical chamber and ensemble music concerts played by myself or my friends, for our own personal use. I also plan to use recording to help in practicing and rehearsals.

While you seem to advertise the primary advantage of the [Core Sound Binaural] mikes as being in recording very loud sound sources, I hear a clear increase in sound clarity and a clear decrease in the noise level with the [Core Sound Binaurals], even at fairly low sound levels. While the [Low Cost Binaural] version would be quite sufficient for recording rehearsals for learning purposes, the [Core Sound Binaural] version gives recordings of recitals that sound "fairly-near-to-professional,"though not quite as good a job as our university A/V engineers do with about $3000 worth of equipment. But quite good enough to already be hunting around as to who would transfer my second-ever MD recording to 30 CD-R copies at a reasonable rate.

So I'm delighted with the [Core Sound Binaural] version and keeping it, and sending the [Low Cost Binaural] version for a ... refund.

Thanks from a satisfied customer.
