Virtual Reality is everywhere these days. As we all know, there are many equipment options available in the market when consider to make a panoramic video such as Insta360, GoPros etc. But how about audio? Immersive video cannot lives on its own without immersive audio. So we need some sort of tools to capture 3D sound. The following are the Ambisonic microphones we can get.
- Core Sound TetraMic® Microphone is the first portable, coincident, stereo and surround-sound Ambisonic soundfield microphone. The price is $899.
- Sennheiser Ambeo® VR mic. It is the most expensive one with the price of £1440.
- Brahma Ambisonics Microphone finished its crowdfunding on Kickstarter. Now the price is $899.
- Twirling720 VR Audio Recorder is another ambisonics microphone. Now it is starting crowdfounding on IndieGoGo, and just $499. For many VR video producers it is a good choice to have a try.
Which microphone is better? It depends. In my opinion, if you are new in VR audio production or want to have a try first, Twirling720 is a good start. If you are a professional user, you may choose Sennheiser.
