I am considering buying this http://microphonemadness.com/products/mmbinstermic.htm in order to make some ambient recordings.
Anyone know of any other good omni/binaural mics out there?
Tell us more about your budget, so we can tell you what mics are in that range.
But why do you want to have binaural mics?I never understood why people choose some of these. Dont want to offend you, I just wonder
Ah yes i'm not sure whether to go binaural, there seems to be downsides such as a lot of handling/wind noise.
My budget is probably no more than a couple of hundred at the most.
to make some ambient recordings.
Frogloggers might be a better option for quiet ambience/nature recordings
These have a lower self noise than the ones you linked to.
As for wind noise, omnis are the least affected by wind compared to cardioid or hypercardioid. It is relatively simple to make your own windshields for them.
Alternatively you could make your own binaurals. Have a look at the Primo EM172 in the page I linked, pack of 10 for a few bucks more than the MM ready made binaurals and self noise of only 14dB !
