True, plus if you are recording something out doors, such as you walking
somewhere, it may look a bit odd to be talking to yourself; when really
you're talking to a little chunk of the world.

Subject: [bct] Re: binaural mics?
Sarah, yes, you get muted voice with binaural mikes. They are not really intended to record the voice of the person wearing them, but to record sounds around that person. If the surrounding sounds are loud, your talking will be totally lost. If the ambient noise is not too loud, your voice will come through. In general, I would suggest that a person, if they can, record the sounds they wish with the binaurals, record their commentary separately with a mike in front of the mouth and mix the two on the computer.
