About this product

Parabolic microphones are extremely directional and will pick up sounds over long distances. This makes them ideal for wildlife recording.

The Hi-Sound Stereo Parabolic Microphone uses two pairs of microphones separated by a baffle in order to capture sounds in stereo. The use of two capsules for each channel provides a signal gain of approximately +3dB and decreases self noise. The combined signal is routed through a single stereo 3.5mm mini-jack. Audio range of the microphone is 100Hz – 20kHz.

The parabolic dish has an outer diameter of 53cm and a focus depth of 12.5mm and the PETG dish is 1mm thick. The microphone is fitted with a handle with comfortable foam grip and a 1m cable. Plug in power (3 - 5V) is required and can be provided via the 3.5mm microphone socket on many portable recorders. For a selection of compatible recorders, please see the accessories tab.
