THIS IS NOT A HOW-TO! Just something I thought was cool and wanted to share.
Sam (Corridor Digital) has been experimenting with 3D printing scans of his ears for binaural sound capture. He’s using a pair of Sennheiser wireless lav mics inside the fake ear’s canals. For a quick proof of concept experiment, this worked extremely well.
Corridor does a lot of first-person perspective videos and by filming them with binaural audio, everything should sound a lot more immersive.
You can see the printing and a quick test in this first vlog, and another test of the system in the second video.
I have to say it sounds great and very lifelike in headphones and in my studio monitors. Can’t wait to see them using this for real.
