Sony wireless SingStar microphonesSony just introduced a new bunch of wireless SingStar microphones that are touted as being “easy to pass around”. Apparently one of the selling points is that they are lead-free, which is good for the environment. The voices that you will hear on these mics? Not so good for the environment.

They’ll be available in UK stores this March 20th, so you’ll want to get these when you pick up the SingStar Pop Edition for PS3 this April. The new wireless SingStar microphones are compatible with PS2 and PS3 consoles.

Big earred mic is creepy, lacks a face

Big earred mic is creepy, lacks a face
This odd mic is blue, with 2 big ears, which is creepy enough, but the most disturbing thing in conjunction with those features is the lack of any face at all. The ears are supposed to capture sound in stereo just like human ears. At least that’s the idea. Problem is your subject will be so freaked out, they’ll be running in the opposite direction.

The other problem is the price. The Binaural Recording Mic from Otokinoko retails for $3,900. That’s a lot to pay to look like a dork. There is one upside to using this strange device though. If you’re filming in some remote jungle and you meet up with a hostile tribe, just grab this baby, hold it up high and they’ll be worshipping their new God.

Logitec stereo mic for your iPod

Posted in Microphone by Darrin Olson on March 5th, 2008

Logitec LIC-iREC01 iPod microphoneAnyone that owns an iPod has probably noticed at one time or another that all of them lack a common feature found in many other media players – an audio input source. This fact has opened up a market for many 3rd parties to create microphone accessories for the iPod including one of the latest designs, this time from Logitec.

The LIC-iREC01 microphone connects to any model iPod that has a docking port and provides dual microphone for stereo recording straight to the device. It also has an input port for bringing in other audio sources to record aside from the ambient noise, and it has a pass through USB port to sync up and charge the iPod without having to remove the microphone accessory. A switch on the side controls high or low levels of recording and the part that we like best is that it’s small and doesn’t need any additional cords or loose parts (aside from the dock cap) to operate.

MXL USB.009-24 USB microphoneMXL has announced the release of what they are boasting as the world’s first “plug and play” USB microphone that features 24Bit/96 kHz recording. According th MXL the new USB.009 microphone can deliver “world class sound reproduction” by simply plugging the USB connection into an ordinary laptop running Windows or a Mac OS. Before making an effort to audition for the next American Idol you may want to use this guy to get an accurate listen of your voice, first. It might just save you an embarrassing spot on prime time television.

The MXL USB.009 microphone features a recording capability of up to 96kHz, a gold sputtered diaphragm, 24-bit A/D and D/A converters, and a dynamic range of 114 dB. It also houses an adjustable level control, mix control and a 1/8th-inch stereo headphone jack all withing the microphone. And our favorite part is the blue LED light that glows inside the microphone grill letting you know its powered on and of course giving it just the right amount of geeky-coolness.
