3,500 kr excl VAT

The M500-384 USB Ultrasound Microphone enables you to make high-quality, full spectrum recordings of bat calls or other ultrasonic signals with a wide variety of computers/laptops/tablets/smartphones, using the sound recording software of your choice. The M500-384 uses standard sound device drivers and does not require installation of any custom drivers.

Like the M500, the M500-384 comes in a slim and durable aluminium enclosure and utilizes the same advanced electret microphone technology as the well-known D500X detector.

The M500-384 can be used both in directional and omni-directional modes. The M500-384 is the ideal choice if you intend to use your smartphone for ultrasound recording. Also consider this model if you need to be independent of a specific OS or software. The software you choose to use must support recording at 384 kHz. Works with Android, Linux (Ubuntu), OS X, iOS or Windows. Please verify the hardware/software compatibility and that 384 kHz recording is supported. Certain smartphones/tablets – particularly low-end devices – have been found not to support USB audio at 384 kHz.

A 0.5 m USB (type-A to mini-B) cable is included. A type mini-B to micro-B/OTG USB cable, suitable for use with a smartphone or tablet, can be purchased separately.

The picture shows the M500-384 with an Android smartphone, running the Bat Recorder app, available at Google Play.
