Where Can You Buy the 3Dio Free Space Pro Binaural Microphone?

3Dio Free Space Pro Binaural Microphone

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: Oculus Rift Unboxing

Well there isn’t too much ASMR in this video but we were so excited about getting our Oculus Rift that we had to do a quick unboxing to show all our subscribers. We purchased it not just for the ‘fun factor’ but to use (maybe) in some way to create ASMR videos.

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.

ASMR Microphone Test #2: Rode NT1A Microphone – Mostly Sounds (with just a bit of talking at the start and finish)

This is the second test I did for the Rode NT1a microphone. I angled the microphones a little more and spaced them a little further apart. I think it makes the left and right ear a little more defined.

I am going to keep working on it to improve the sound as these are really nice mice.

ASMR: Review of the ASMR Sounds App

 

We were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to review the ASMR Sounds App which you can download in the iTunes App Store. It’s a great little app that allows you to customise your ASMR sounds. You can see how it works in the video.

ASMRHQ 011: Headphones We Use for ASMR

In this podcast we talk about the three different types of headphones we use when listening to ASMR and meditation recordings. We discuss attributes of each one and in particular the Samson SR850 headphone that we find is ideal  for when we are recording as we can not only hear the playback but what is going on in the room, plus the sound reproduction is very good.

During the podcast I mentioned the price of the Wireless SleepPhone as being $39.95.  I was looking at the price for the regular SleepPhone and the wireless set is in fact $99.95.

We also talk about the general Apple earbuds and a comfortable solution to using these by adding memory foam tips.

ASMR Yeti Microphone Test – Includes tapping, crinkling and soft scraping sounds

 

This is my first on screen video. I thought it was time to get in front of the camera at least for some of the videos so started with a Yeti Microphone Test.

The microphone arrived this week and I wanted to test it out as it has multiple options for creating sounds. I also did an unboxing video but I still have to edit that one.

The video starts of a little noisy only because I was moving the microphone around a bit but the noise stopped once I set it down.

Included are tapping sounds, crinkly wrapper sounds and some very soft scraping sounds.

We Bought a 3Dio Free Space Pro Binaural Microphone

3Dio Free Space Pro On TripodIn our ongoing effort to get better and better sound, we have purchased another microphone. Well, that’s my excuse anyway. In reality, I think I am addicted to microphones. I keep seeing ones I want to buy but that’s okay, cause I can give up anytime I want, really I can! ( ha, no she can’t)

But seriously, I think we have found a good one in our latest purchase of the 3Dio Free Space Pro Binaural Microphone. We like the idea of having a binaural microphone to create our sounds and we are currently using a Soundman OKM II Binaural Microphone to achieve the binaural sound effect. However, because we are creating ASMR videos and are recording are very low sounds, there is a tendency to hear the self noise of the microphone. In other words, the hissing, humming and buzzing of the microphone during those quiet moments.

Now the Soundman is very good. The self-noise isn’t too bad, but we wanted to get it even better, and from our very initial testing, I think the Free Space can do that. The self-noise of the Free Space is 14 dBa whilst the Soundman is 32 dBa. When it comes to self-noise, the lower the better. So the Free Space is a lot quieter at least in terms of the specs.

We have only just received the microphone and just done a quick test but will be doing a full review with video in the near future. We are waiting on a Yeti microphone to arrive and  we thought that it might be a good idea to do some comparison audios for you with the different microphones at a later stage. 

What I really like about the 3Dio Free Space, is that you can attach a camera to it as well as a recorder. It’s perfect for those ASMR artists who do role-play videos.
