Andrew binaural mics

Hello Andrew,

I am looking over the website you recommended. I understand you like the MM-BSM-9 version which has the Shure clips to fix to your clothing. Have you tried the MM-BSM-8? these are mounted on a headband to wear like headphones. But to all intense and purposes they are the same mic but mounted differently.

In addition, how does their battery pack work? It would be grate if they did a XLR plug adapter to take fantom. So does their battery pack enable then to use a xLR adapter?

Regards,
Gena

Hello Andrew,

Still looking. I can’t see the 9v pack. However, I think they do a fantom power converter for those mics, model MM-PPC. It’s expensive though.

The sight is lacking so much information and if they ignore your enquiry that’s not good.

I am going to see if an adapter can be found more locally.

I look forward to your input.

Hello Andrew,

I think this is what you need to power them from the H6.


The VXLR+ is a 3.5mm female TRS socket to male XLR adaptor, which will convert 12-48V Phantom Power down to 3-5V 'Plug in Power', allowing RØDE on-camera microphones such as the VideoMicro and VideoMic GO, as well as self-worn microphones like the HS2 Headset Mic to receive power from the XLR input. The 3.5mm socket also features the same threaded connector as used on the output cable of the HS2 Headset Microphone, and the RØDELink Filmmaker Kit Receiver, ensuring the connection to your XLR input is secure and won't disconnect during your recording.

Regards,

Hi Georgina.

I've been off-line on 2 of my computers. I think it was some form of virus, so this is slowing me down a bit!

It is a great pity that they are not responding to enquiries at the moment and their web page is very poor. You'd think that the next below an item, such as the BSM 9's, the next link would be titled Acceseries?

I think that the Lock Down is very much affecting everyone and I believe that most places are closed.

I cannot get through to Dell UK or Roberts Radios and now this place. a load of other specialised companiesalso.

would it not be dredfull if this lock down went on another year?

I've got a small box that I purchased with my first set of BSM 9's. I remember it was very cheep.

It's got a 4 inch cable coming from the front with asmall minijack on the end of it. At the other side of the box is a minijack socket.

The box has 4 tiny screws so you can take the top off. there is a PP3 battery inside .

Now I cannot remember if this was a small power pack or something to do withGain enhancer or even some form off attinuation amp.. I remember that there was a swich inside that could be moved from one of two settings.

I wish I could only find it. It's in an old butter container with my oldBSM 9's. but Gena, you should see this wee study I'v got, its a mess and I simply cannot find anything.
It's a disgrace! I cannot even clean the surfaces down and boy it's almost impossible to find anything . It really bugs my wife because of how my study looks when visitors come.

Gena check out this:

Perhaps we can get our kit from them if they also closed.

Andy.

Hello Andy,

I am glad you were able to respond, I was getting worried. I am sure I can match you for untidiness. I don’t have to please anyone.

I looked at the link you provided. They link to a UK firm who call them something different. It seems they only do a headphone version, perhaps you might want to phone them tomorrow?

https://www.pmtonline.co.uk/roland-cs10-em-in-ear-binaural-headphones-microphone#product-details

Got to get something to eat.

Take care,
