Binaural ASMR recordings are quickly becoming the gold standard for ASMRtists. The reason for it is clear for anyone who experiences that tingly ASMR sensation. You can actually feel the difference.

What do you record with?
Why Record ASMR in Binaural
To say that sound plays a crucial role in triggering this pleasurable sensation is an understatement. The best ASMRtists are also audiophiles, and together they have raised widespread awareness of a superior alternative to stereo sound called binaural audio. Binaural ASMR, like all binaural recording, captures sound as you actually hear it by employing two microphones spaced to approximate the distance between your ears. Many online videos and audio tracks are marked “Binaural ASMR,” but some of them are actually stereo recordings, which why there’s a sub-Reddit dedicated to “Real Binaural ASMR.” The difference in sound quality is clear. When you play back a binaural recording through headphones, it produces the incredibly immersive sensation of being in the same exact place where the recording was made. It’s a difference you can physically feel.
- Binaural ASMR audio can be experienced on any pair of headphones, meaning you can upload your binaural video straight to the web and have any one hear it in 3D.
- The Hooke Audio App 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.
The Future of ASMR With Hooke Verse
You can find lots of people talking about ASMR microphones websites and forums. We’re excited to see what new directions ASMR has taken, as videos by pros and amateurs alike start featuring binaural mics.
Hooke Verse is the first (and still the only) pair of Bluetooth in-ear binaural microphones, with a tiny mic incorporated into each earbud. The Verse pairs with your smartphone and can be connected to a standalone camera. The selfie cam feature in the Hooke app also enables you to record video of yourself in binaural that’s consistent with the reflected image of your left and right ear.
Most ASMR videos are staged, and the Verse provides clear binaural ASMR recordings in any controlled environment. But it’s also an easily portable wireless headset that offers more hands-free mobility than any other binaural ASMR microphone out there. More than just a tool for triggering ASMR, the Verse has the potential to reveal how it feels in real-time, out in the world, at a moment when we least expected it.
Unbox The True Potential of ASMR
ASMR is another niche in binaural recording. Like all of the people and videos mentioned above, it triggers that sense on the back of your neck and down your spine and can send you into a state of relaxation. It helps calm people down and even deal with anxiety, helping people focus on that feeling moving down their body and having their attention elsewhere. It doesn’t even have to be staged or practiced ASMR tricks, either. Sometimes, being placed in another spot helps others by itself. But ASMR is a pop culture phenomenon that is helping society articulate and define what ASMR and binaural are, how they can be used, and even how they can be helpful.
