It seems like quite a few people are curious about the setup I’m using to record binaural soundseeing tours. Actually, I wouldn’t recommend using the rig I hobbled together because it picks up the sounds inside my mouth and upper digestive tract. Check out the binaural mics at soundprofessionals.com instead.
But, since you asked…
- Recorder: iRiver 799
- 2 mono to 1 stereo jack adapter: Sony PC-239S (no doubt Radio Shack has something that’ll do the same thing.)
- recording earbuds: Sony ECM-TL1 (two of them)
There’s picture of the monstrosity here.
At home I use a Plantronics DSP-400 headset and Audacity. The noise canceling mic works great. If I were using an el cheapo mic, the racket my PC makes would practically drown out my voice. And the headset came with a CD full of excellent software, which I unfortunately lost long ago.
