Hi Nature Recordists

This product"LISN" surely resembles Telinga.
A design of Telinga will be all the more good.

I tried to direct link to a sample sound source of  Michio Matsuda's

Best wishes

A sample sound source uses PCM-M1. A recording level is four or five.
I removed a petit noise to depend on the whole. It does not process it
than it. A file is WAV.

It is known as a bird of a low voice. Distance more than 50m.
But it is monoral microphone of prototype and PCM-M1.

A sound source for comparison.
