DIY binaural mic using Primo EM172
I am trying to build my first DIY binaural mic using Primo EM172 capsules but I can use some advice.
What I made so far look like the following mic but without XLR connections.
Creating a DIY Binaural Microphone – Matt Davison
This is a sample recording using auto levels:
Each section is approximately 10cm long in this sketch:
(Simply 2 capsules connected to a 3.5mm trs plug)
I am using a ZOOM F1 portable audio recorder but I am experiencing more noise than expected...
I soldered the capsules using a 15W soldering iron and did not exceed 2-3s per capsule.
How can I be sure the capsules aren't damaged by soldering or at least compare and measure them noise-wise against other mics?
My ZOOM F1 provides 2.5V PIP. I've read 5-10V would improve noise levels. What are your suggestions improving my setup and getting the most out of these capsules?
Thanks in advance!
