Pettersson M500-384 ultrasound microphone
The newest addition to the Pettersson line of ultrasound microphones is the M500-384. It offers great convenience and has the same price as the original M500.
The M500-384 can be connected to a device running on Android, Linux (Ubuntu), OS X, iOS or Windows and it will work as a standard audio recording device. No need to install custom drivers.
Like the M500, the M500-384 comes in a slim and durable aluminium enclosure and utilizes the same advanced electret microphone technology as the well-known D500X detector.
The M500-384 can be used both in directional and omni-directional modes. The M500-384 is the ideal choice if you intend to use your smartphone for ultrasound recording. Also consider this model if you need to be independent of a specific OS or software. Please verify the hardware compatibility of the software you choose and that it supports recording at 384 kHz.
