The podcast explosion has given rise to a new generation of audio-based storytellers. As the medium grows, so do podcast microphones. There are a lot of experiential podcasts on the market, but few of them do a great job of making you feel like you’re there. We hear the world in 3D and we should be telling stories that way. This is why Binaural Podcasting is so important, now you can transport your audiences to new worlds using binaural audio. It’s time to experience a new type of podcast mic- Hooke Verse, the first binaural 3D audio Podcast recorder.
Upgrade Your Podcast Audio
Why Record A Binaural Podcast?
If you want to create a podcast that feels immersive in a whole new way, you may want to consider recording it in binaural 3D audio, which captures audio identically to the way our ears experience sound. A binaural podcast will give your listeners the sensation of being in the same exact place where you made the recording.
- Binaural 3D audio can be experienced on any pair of headphones, meaning you can upload your binaural podcast straight to the web and have any one hear it in 3D.
- Hooke Verse is synced to Dropbox and Google drive on your phone, allowing you to capture hours of content in the field and not worry about storage.
- Hooke Verse can record binaural 3D audio to your field recorders and cameras too with its included recording wire, making it compatible on all of your podcast recorders.
Binaural Podcasting Will Change Podcasts Forever
What Is Binaural 3D Audio?
Mimicking the way our ears hear naturally, 3D or spatial audio allows people to hear sounds all around them in more accurate detail than stereo. 3D audio creates a clear pinpoint to where sound is coming from in an acoustic space which enables better listening. We hear the world in 3D audio, we should be capturing it that way.
- Binaural sound is not to be confused with conventional stereo sound. Stereo does not factor in the natural ear spacing or “head shadow” of the head and ears.
- Dr. Who released an episode recorded completely in binaural audio in 2017.
- The BBC rigged an binaural microphone array at the Royal Albert Hall this season and is using it to record concerts in three-dimensional sound.
- Hooke Verse is the world’s first Bluetooth binaural 3d audio microphone.
Unlock the True Potential of Storytelling
Hearing Is Believing
Imagine if you could hear a radio story about a coal mine and you could actually descend into the mine, hearing the 3D audio as you turn your head. Or a 3D Audio experience of a war zone.
It’s easy enough to start a podcast; the hard part is getting heard. Using a binaural mic as your podcast mic is a great way to separate your podcast from the pack. More importantly, it will likely inspire creative impulses that you didn’t even know you had. Until recently, binaural recorders were prohibitively expensive. But these days all you need to record in binaural is a pair of headphones designed to capture 3D audio. The Hooke Verse is the world’s first Bluetooth headphones with binaural mics incorporated into each earbud.
