Pettersson M500 Microphone

Product Description

Lightweight Full-spectrum Power

The Pettersson M500 is a small, USB-powered ultrasonic microphone housed in durable, black aluminum enclosure. Utilizing the same advanced electret microphone technology as the D500x detector, the M500 can be used both in directional and omnidirectional modes (with or without the directional horn). The microphone features low-noise technology, high sampling frequency and has an efficient anti-aliasing filter to provide the highest quality recordings.

The M500 is ideal for:

  • Education programs
  • Professional voucher call library building
  • Professional active monitoring and selective recording
  • Mobile transects
  • Professional short term passive recording where a tablet/netbook may be deployed
  • Microphone may be extended over 40' using an inexpensive USB active extension (some tablets may not allow this extension)

Highly flexible with many software and platform choices:

  • Windows 8 or higher Capture Software: SonoBat Live*, BatSound Touch Lite, BatSound Touch, SoundChaser, Audacity
  • Linux Capture Software: Audacity
  • Mac OS X Capture Software: SonoBat Live*, Audacity
  • Android Capture Software*: Bat Recorder, USB Bat Detector
  • iOS Capture Software*: Ultrasonic Analyzer (using the Apple Camera Adapter)
  • Bat Call Analysis Software: any software accepting full spectrum .wav files (SonoBat, Kaleidoscope PRO) or EchoClass and BCID when files are downsampled to zero-cross data.

* requires the M500-384 model or an existing M500 which has been changed to the 384 version via a firmware change

Why choose Pettersson?

Less than 1% of all M500 microphones ever sold have ever been returned for refurbishment. When you are conducting serious, time sensitive research, count on Pettersson equipment having more uptime than other detector platforms.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • Would the M500 microphone pick up better than the D240x?

    The M500 is actually the same high-end mic element as the D240x, so your recordings will appear familier in that the frequency response is essentially unchanged. A huge problem with certain other brands is every iteration of their microphones has a different frequency response, which can be seen in full spectrum and causes mis-classifications when using auto-ID apps. The M500 has updated electronics and supposedly is even better than the D500x microphone we compare to other brands. The much bigger difference using the M500 + SonoBatLIVE  over the D240x is that the capture process is all automated, so you will be recording a lot more bat calls than you might with the D240x, in many but not all situations.    You can also connect the M500 to an Android device and use a $6 app call Batrecorder, and it would actually function better than the D240 system you are currently using, because there is no downtime between recordings, it saves direct .wav files to the SD card in the phone. (You can buy Andrioid phones with no phone contract, etc. and use them as bat detectors.

  • I do not see spec requirements for the tablet to collect data with the M500 microphone. Are there minimum requirements for ram, 32 bit vs 64 bit OS, Windows 10 version? I am looking at getting this for data collection in the field, and using a more capable PC for data analysis. Can you tell me if this tablet is suitable? https://www.amazon.com/NuVision-8-inch-Touchscreen-Quad-Core-Processor/dp/B01H3B17R8 Thanks,

    Hello Mike- Some of the software that the M500 works with is:

    Windows: 
    SonoBatLIVE, BatSound Touch, SoundChaser, Audacity
    Android: Bat Recorder, USB Bat Detector iOS: Ultrasonic Analyzer Linux: Audacity OS X: Audacity
    The tablet must be able to handle a microphone at a 384 kHz sample rate. Some low end tablets cannot do this.

    Probably the most intensive software to use with the M500-384 is SonoBatLIVE. For that you want at least Hardware Requirements: Windows 10 PC, Mini PC, or tablet. 4 GB RAM + 1.5 gHz processor or higher, 64 bit. More RAM and a higher clock speed will help reduce perceived lag, especially in areas with high noise or high bat activity.

    The tablet you spec is lacking in too many areas... it is a 32 bit machine where 64 is required for the latest SonoBat. It has too little RAM. Finally be wary of those machines with only one port... this means you cannot charge it while the mic is plugged in/running. Expect to pay ~$400 for a refurbished SurfacePro 4 with the minimum specs. We are testing a SurfaceMe with is smaller and lighter, but can't say one thing or another about it yet.
