ASMR: Binaural Enthusiast Microphone Test – Mixed Sounds, Softly Spoken

We wrote about our latest microphone acquisition, the Binaural Enthusiast Microphone and how we tried it out on one of our podcasts, but until recently, we hadn’t really put it through it’s paces to see what it is truly capable of.

So yesterday, I plugged it all in and tried it out with some of the ASMR sounds that have been popular in the past, like the crinkly ball, the styrofoam thingy and various other things.

I really like this binaural microphone. As I mentioned in the previous post, it was created by an ASMR artist so it is made to suit our requirements.

I really can’t wait to start using it more often.

Here is a link to the Binaural Enthusiast website for more info on this microphone: https://binauralenthusiast.com

 

ASMRHQ 45: ASMR Binaural Microphone Test

In this ASMR podcast, we test our latest microphone. This one is the Binaural Enthusiast dummy head microphone which is made by a fellow ASMR artist by the name of Pawel. His ASMR channel is Deep Oceans of Sounds so check him out.

We’ve Just Ordered a Binaural Enthusiast Dummy Head Microphone

I think I have an addiction to microphones because we’ve just ordered another one. My excuse is that I just want to keep improving the sounds we record for ASMR which is definitely true, but really another microphone??

This time it’s the Binaural Enthusiast Dummy Head Microphone.  I found this microphone by searching the net for binaural microphones and when I came across the site and looked at the description and specs I was immediately interested. This microphone is quieter than the Soundman OKM we have which means less white noise.

But what got me really interested is that this binaural microphone was created by ASMR artist – Deep Oceans of Sounds, so it is made for ASMR artists. I’ve already seen it used by ASMRSurge and he is gaining a huge following now.

The microphone is on its way so as soon as it arrives we will be doing a microphone test.

Take a listen to the video below and see what you think.

Binaural ASMR: Massaging and Tapping Your Brain

 

Since I had the Soundman binaural microphone out I thought I would record another one. This is a massaging your brain video and has been quite popular on YouTube.

There’s also a bit of tapping in this but I think next time I will just do a ASMR massage only video.

ASMR Microphone Test: Softly Spoken with Tapping Sounds

It’s been a while since we last posted a YouTube ASMR video, so I decided to start back with a microphone test using the 3Dio Freespace Pro binaural microphone.

In this video, I talk with a softly spoken voice and most make tapping sounds.

Rode NT1A Microphone Tests

It’s been some time since we last uploaded a video to YouTube. The main reason is that we have been having issues with our microphones. When we would record we would get a lot of white noise which shouldn’t be happening for either of the microphones we are using – the Rode NT1a and the 3Dio Pro binaural microphone.

We tried all sorts of things to see what was causing the issue including:

  • using three different sets of microphone cables
  • recording wit the Zoom H4n and the Zoom R24
  • changing locations to see if it was a room issue

Yesterday I decided to go through the whole process again and started to test different cables etc but eventually gave up and decided just to plug the Rode NT1a mics back in to the Zoom R24 like we would normally do an lo and behold it suddenly started to work again. So we have no idea what the issue was but at this point, we don’t really care as the Rode NT1a is recording nicely again.

So the two videos below are just a couple of mic tests I did yesterday to test it all out again. They are sounding a lot better.

The first video is voice only and the second video is sounds only.

 

 

Microphones for ASMR Artists

We thought we might do a video on the types of microphones we use, which are the most common microphones used by ASMR artists.

In this video we discuss the following microphones:

This is our 3Dio Free Space Pro microphone

We’ve been using our 3Dio Free Space Pro microphone for close to a year as I write this, and we love it. It is perfect for creating ASMR videos as it not only allows you to record binaural sound but also has an option to add a camera. It’s our favourite microphone for ASMR and one we definitely recommend!!

We purchased ours from the 3Dio website but just noticed that Amazon sells them now which is awesome. So you now have two choices when purchasing but if you buy from Amazon we get a commission which really helps to support us, so thank you in advance to anyone who uses the Amazon link below.

ASMR Binaural Sound Series #41: Cleaning the 3Dio Microphone

Our 3Dio Free Space Pro microphone was starting to look a little grubby so we decided it needed a good clean. Since I was doing it anyway, I thought I might as well record it for an ASMR video, so this is the result.

It cleaned up quite nicely and looks like new again.
