According to the picture, they're not in-ear mikes. As for channel reversal, I found that when the mikes are worn over the ears with the curved plastic part facing forward, this is no longer the case. ===== Feel the power...

Okay, this may be verrrrry old news, but I solved the mystery of the Sound Professional binaural mikes and how they're supposed to be worn. My wife told me there is a picture on the front of the envelope containing the mikes that shows them being worn like glasses. I remembered the discussions we had about wearing them in the ear and thought "Odd." So then I tested them, wearing them like glasses, with the mikes facing forward. (By the way, nearly jumped out of my skin listening to the test recording, because at one poitn my wife called to me from the bedroom down the hall, and I swear, I nearly shouted "What?" and at the last millisecond before the word left my lips I remembered it was the recording. This at 64kpbs, yet!) I realized that the positioning was off. Her voice was coming from behind me to the right, when it should've been coming from somewhere around one o'clock. And then I felt my ears and realized that I could solve this and make it work with the picture shown by wearing the mikes like glasses, but having the mikes facing out, behind me. Worked like a charm. Everything was where it was supposed to be in the sound stage, and I didn't have to worry about giving up some of my hearing. So yes, maybe this is old *old* news, but hey, it was a discovery for me, and I thought I'd share it with you. 'Til next time... ===== Feel the power...
