The 3Dio FS Binaural Microphone is the world’s most popular 3D microphone for ASMR, virtual reality, field recording and recording studios. Used all over the world by hobbyists and professional recording engineers alike, 3Dio binaural microphones are a must-have for anyone looking for the best in 3D audio capturing.

What is Binaural?
Binaural is a recording technique that involves capturing sound using a stereo binaural microphone that is shaped and configured like two human ears. The 3Dio FS binaural microphone is a special stereo microphone that contains two prosthetic, human-shaped ears with microphone capsules embedded inside each ear canal. Binaural microphones capture audio the same way your real ears hear sounds. Incoming sound waves are changed by the ear-shaped pinna of the microphone, just like your ears would change the incoming sound waves. Our brains understand these changes as directional cues that allow us to pinpoint precise locations of any given sound. When you listen to binaural recordings using headphones, the result is a natural three-dimensional sound that gives
the listener the sensation of being in the space where the audio was recorded as well as the sensation of facing the same direction as the microphone was during the recording.

How does it work?
The FS binaural microphone output is a 3.5mm stereo (TRS), unbalanced, mic level output. It contains two matched, electret condenser microphone capsules embedded inside each ear canal and is powered by the pre-installed 9V battery. With the power switch in the ON position, the battery will last 300+ hours of continuous use. The microphone also contains a bass roll-off switch with a knee point of 160 hz. Like most condenser microphones, the 3Dio FS requires a preamp-equipped device to boost the signal to an audible level.
