HHB FlashMic
Special Order

The Most Convenient Recorder Ever!

Why didn't anybody think of this before? Portable recording specialist HHB Communications has developed the FlashMic DRM85 - the world's first professional digital recording microphone. Perfect for all voice recording applications, in particular broadcast and press interviewing, the FlashMic combines a high quality Sennheiser omnidirectional condenser capsule with 1GB of flash recording memory to create a convenient, durable, and portable recording device that's extremely easy to operate.

HHB FlashMic DRM85 Digital Recording Microphone at a Glance:
  • No cables, no separate recorder - just push the button and record!
  • Runs more than six hours on two AA batteries
  • Customize your settings with included GUI software
  • Quality microphone with pro specs

No cables, no separate recorder - just push the button and record!
Since the FlashMic DRM85 doesn't need fiddly cables or connectors, you can be recording instantly with just a single button-push. The FlashMic DRM85 records WAV linear or MPEG 2 encoded audio files which can then be transferred quickly and easily via USB to Macintosh or PC computers and laptops for editing and onward transmission. A Date/Time stamp is stored along with the file, with the internal real-time clock set and synchronized automatically by your host computer.

Runs more than six hours on two AA batteries
The FlashMic is powered for more than six hours by a pair of standard AA batteries (either primary or rechargeable cells can be fitted), with the remaining battery power displayed along with time, level and status information in a backlit LCD on the microphone body. In addition, a visual low battery warning alerts you to the imminent need to change batteries.

Customize your settings with included GUI software
You can operate the FlashMic straight out of the box using default settings, or create and store nine custom configurations using the straightforward Mac/PC GUI software supplied. Parameters including Audio Mode, AGC (Automatic Gain Control) On/Off, Record Level, Pre Record Buffer (0 - 10 seconds) and HPF (High Pass Filter) On/Off can be individually adjusted to create the optimum configurations for a particular operator's typical applications. In addition, an "Expert Mode" allows all variable parameters to be accessed directly from the FlashMic body.

Quality microphone with pro specs
With a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz and less than 0.1% Total Harmonic Distortion at 16-bit/48kHz, FlashMic makes recordings of the very highest quality. Recordings can be played back under independent level control on the FlashMic using headphones connected via a socket on the base of the unit.

HHB FlashMic DRM85 Digital Recording Microphone Features:
  • Sennheiser condenser capsule with broadcast-quality flash recorder
  • Simple, easy to use operation with 10-second prerecorded buffer
  • USB interface for quick transfer to PC or Mac
  • 2 x AA battery life of 6+ hours
  • Maximum record time in excess of 18 hours

Record on the fly and in a flash with the HHB Flashmic DRM85!
