Default Nate checking in, binaural geek

Hey folks,

Thought I'd post a hello. I'm Nate, I'm primarily a sound designer but I like to tinker with making microphones too. One of my projects is building binaural microphones, like the following two:

Hi Nate, and welcome to diyAudio! I like the heads! Do you take a mould of your own ears? would seem to be the ultimate way of getting the sound as "you" hear it...

Hi Tony!

The ears are actually casts of a (very patient) mate's ears. It's really only ever going to be an approximation of the listeners ears as everyone's are different, so I asked my mate as he seemed to have pretty normal looking/sized ears

haha. I thought that if you did your own then you had the ultimate setup for your self. I guess your mate will be the best one to decide on how well it works

Hi Nate, welcome to diyAudio. That's quite the set-up you are working with. As Tony says, only your mate will know how well it's working.

I love listening to binaural stuff on youtube... always made me wonder:

Are the microphones for these placed where the actual ear drums are? Sometimes when I listen to binaural recordings it sounds like the sound is 5-10cm away from the ear when I imagine the sound should ideally be touching.
