nightshift with storm

On that special Friday in October I got the Ohrwurm.
That’s an ear microphone pair.

I’ve had the OKM Soundman binaural microphone for ages and I want to keep it that way. I’ve realized so many radio projects with it. I took it on long working trips to the tropics. It made great quality recordings, despite extreme humidity, heat and cold. I climbed pyramids with it and descended a gold mine. And the sound engineers were always taken with its performance. In the world of technical gadgets, my OKM soundman may be offended at the moment – if I’m as great as you say, why then the new one? – It may take revenge on the next recordings, who knows, with small failures to make me realize what I have in him. But the Ohrwurm 3D is not a rival. It gets its own job, that will become apparent over time. Both microphones have their special characteristics and qualities.  I can now vary according to the application.

Stormy     03:08, mp3    For headphone listening

Hurricane gusts were predicted for that Friday, the strongest gusts would come after midnight, they said.

I sat at the computer while it raged outside. I had the Ohrwurm ready. Shooting storm from the window, is not the ideal presentation for ear microphones, not at all, it just doesn’t do them justice. Therefore, this is not meant to be a technical recording presentation. It is just nice to listen to. 

Recorded with Ohrwurm 3D and the ZOOM H 5 Recorder.

The Ohrwurm is microphone that you don’t hang  in  your ear cup like the OKM Soundman, but  on  your ear. For more Information please take this path to Wolfgang Winne. He developed the Ohrwurm-microphones and each one is handmade.
