This special 3DIO bundle includes a Free Space binaural microphone complete with a pair of 3DIO Professional Wind Muffs.
3DIO BINAURAL MICROPHONE
The 3Dio Free Space binaural microphone is an affordable, high-quality binaural microphone comprising Primo EM172 microphone capsules embedded inside two prosthetic ears. This allows users to capture sound just as we would naturally hear it and enable you to pinpoint the sound location in space.
The 3Dio Free Space has a very warm and solid response in low to mid-range frequencies and also provides low-end support for bass-heavy sounds. The frequency response of the EM172 capsules rolls off slightly above 10kHz making them excellent for recording instruments with loud high frequencies; e.g. drum cymbals or strummed acoustic guitars. It also prevents any harsh effects sometimes associated with binaural recordings using smaller capsules.
3DIO manufacture premium quality 3D audio recording devices that are popular with professional recording engineers as well as amateur enthusiasts. Binaural recording is the process using microphones shaped like human ears to capture audio in the same way that we hear. These ears (pinnae) dramatically alter the incoming sound waves, however the human brain understands and interprets these alterations as directional cues. Furthermore, the time delay between the left and right ear gives us proper directional perception. When listening to binaural recordings with headphones, a natural three-dimensional sound gives the listener the sensation of being in the space where the audio was recorded. This makes the 3DIO binaural microphones ideal for applications such as 360 and 180 VR video and any professional recording situation where authentic sound quality is critical.
3Dio Professional Wind Muffs offer the perfect wind protection for the 3DIO FS, FS XLR and FS Pro II Binaural Microphone range. They feature an elastic opening that you wrap around each ear disk like a ‘shower cap’ making them incredibly quick to install and very secure once in place.
Each 3Dio wind muff contains three layers of wind protection. The outside of the muff features a ‘deadcat’ fabric layer for a discreet and professional look followed by an internal wind screen that has a custom-designed oval shape that fits over the prosthetic ear of the microphone. The inner layer is a synthetic fabric that minimises shedding and protects the ears and aluminum disks from scratching. All three layers are sewn together along with an elastic band that easily fits over the entire ear disk. 3Dio professional wind muffs are designed to handle extremely high wind speeds and have been successfully tested providing wind protection and remained attached to the ears in sustained winds in excess of 90+ mph (145 kph).
