OKM II Pop/AV
Less sensitive than the Classic, for higher SPL and a max SPL of 111db.
Recommended for recording of Pop and Jazz style music.
Similar in appearance to the small in-ear headphones you usually find supplied with a portable CD or mp3 player, the Soundman binaural microphones where developed to try to capture sound the way we perceive it by making the microphones small enough to fit in the ear. Using computer matching, the pairs of microphones are carefully selected and in use the results are startling, generating very realistic spatial stereo imaging.
There are a number of advantages to the design, especially when recording on location. They are discrete - ideal when recording interviews, background in public places or concerts (with permission from the performers); they can easily be stored away for transport (they're small enough to fit in your pocket); both hands are free which makes it easier to adjust the recording levels and control your recording equipment. If required the microphones can be attached to a stereo bar, melon, tennis ball or football to name but a few of the various methods already tried.
After some experience of using the OKM with your preferred recording device, your ears will become your monitors and you will soon know from what you are hearing what results you are going to get, producing excellent recordings in all sorts of conditions, every time.
