Pettersson u256 Microphone

Product Description
$273.75
Maximum quantity available reached.

Lightweight Full-spectrum Power

Available Q4 2019.

The u256 sets a new standard for USB microphones offering excellent sensitivity, low noise, small size and ultra-low power consumption – all for a modest price. The components are housed in a slim and durable aluminium enclosure.

Like the well-known Pettersson M500-384 microphone, the u-series microphones identify as standard audio recording devices on Windows, OS X, Android, iOS and Linux. Likewise, they are compatible with most common sound recording apps and programs.

The USB connector on u256 plugs directly into a USB Micro B jack, becoming a small and portable recording unit. An extension cable and/or other types of USB jacks may also be used, with an adapter.

The u256 is ideal for:

  • Education programs
  • 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.

 

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
  • Is this compatible with all Android phones? I have an oppo find X2 pro and didn't want to buy to have to return later

    As far as we are aware, it is compatible with Android phones with the proper connector and the app called Batrecorder. Thanks and have a great day!

  • Hi, Will this detector measure relative sound pressure/decibel level? Or is that stripped out in the conversion?

    This is a function of the software; as a full spectrum microphone however, it does natively retain amplitude information. You would just need software or a smartphone app that displays the amplitude/dB level. The included Batsound Touch software does this, as well as many apps, even non-bat oriented apps that use the microphone.
