A binaural microphone is a dummy head fitted with very
natural sounding microphones in both ears. Sound
through one of these contraptions sounds much more
realistic than a standard stereo setup since it basically
out the problem of headphones cancelling out the
sensitivity of the human ear.
My idea is to make microphones like that but in the form
of earbuds. I know it wouldn't be quite the same as the
dummy head since the microphones wouldn't be quite as
deep in the ear and therefore wouldn't get the full effect
the pinna (outer ear folds), but it would be a cool way to
take little audio "pictures" of various situations, and
perhaps use them for live music.
||I suppose a problem to solve might be any unwanted noise (swallowing etc.)? Or perhaps that's an advantage? Wireless would remove the cable noise when it drags on clothing.
||Would it be a way to make the recording sound like you hear your own voice?
