HHB DRM-85 Flash Mic Recording Condenser Cordless Omni ENG Microphone USB w/ 1G [Refurbished]
( 284917946720) )
Item is lightly used and in very good cosmetic condition. The photos show the actual item for sale. The internal memory is about 1GB which is a lot of recording time, even for uncompressed audio. The manual and control application may be found here https://www.prostudioconnection.net/2201/HHB_Flash_Mic.zip . In my testing I was able to run the control program under Windows 10 64 Bit and configure the mic and download test recordings to my PC. The mic can be powered with either alkaline cells or NiMH rechargeable cells (not included). I tested with a USB 2.0 port. It should work equally well on a USB 3.0 port assuming that the port is fully backwards compatible. Seller's warranty is void if you attempt to change the firmware in the microphone. I believe from the serial number decal (see photo) that this is the omnidirectional version of the mic.
The FlashMic DRM85 audio, recorded as Linear PCM or MPEG 1 Layer 2 data, is written to memory in either the BWF uncompressed or .mp2 compressed file formats. A total of 18 hrs. of recording time is available in the low-res compressed format.
The FlashMic DRM85 is further equipped with a small, clear LCD, and a 1.1 or 2.0 compliant mini-USB port, enabling quick and simplified data transfer to a computer for editing and consolidation. A headphone output with a dedicated volume control is available as well.
