There is also the so-called "Originalkopfmikrophone" OKM II (original head
mic), from
Soundman in Berlin. I'm using it since years for my soundscape recordings.
It looks like little headphones and you put it like them in your ears.
Everybody thinks
you are listening to music, while you are recording.

Big advantage: with the small (very very small) preamp you are getting a
(you avoid any noisy mic-preamp in smaller portable DATs)
There are two qualities: "normal" around 200 US$, "high quality" around 300
I'm using the "normal".

As your head functions as "filter" you can create very impressive
stereo-images. Listening
to them through headphones gives you mainly the "real" 3D listening field.


- don't turn your head during recording to fast (stereoimage is flying around)
- quite sensitive to wind.

I don't know if there is a web page.
