Default Where to buy deccent electret mic like Primo EM173 or better suggestion

I am looking for about a dozen of good characteristic electret microphones like Primo EM173 (A school DIY project in Thailand), but I wonder where are they available for retail quantity? I couldn't see them on RS component.

Alternatively, any better suggestions? The size limit is up to 25 mm diameter

The bigger the easier to be manipulated by beginner soldering, that's why I don't like the Panasonic wm-61a.

Panasonic doesn't make electret mics anymore (dissapointing, because that model, and an earlier one, were quite consistent, and could handle high levels with the "Linkwitz mod"). The bigger problem is that other electrets I've seen aren't any larger (but I haven't seen the Primo).

Maybe this will be of interest, it's small but it has wires already attached:
