Binaural Microphone

Introduction: Binaural Microphone

This project was made so that you could make binaural recordings which are recordings that are very realistic sounding. These recordings are only realistic sounding because they are recorded in a similar way that people hear sound. Also these recordings are only realistic sounding when listening with good headphones.

An example of binaural recording is: (this is not my video)

If you don't have a 3d printer you can get it printed at

Settings: Use whatever settings you normally do, you can make the infill low since none of these are load bearing. The only part that will need support is the side_parts.stl


(1) main_body.stl

(1) top.stl
