Compared to the Low Cost Binaurals, the modifications that we do on the
more expensive Core Sound Binaurals
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
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.
