Looks interesting. Hopefully they sounds good. Not sure I'd really expect stellar recordings out a 99 Euro stereo mic + A>D though.

Still more options for shows with extra security are welcome.

Just curious - how still do you have to be when using something like this?

I was at a show with eyeglass mounted omnis and I really didint care that much about the recording so decided to dance somewhat freely and when I tried to listen to the recording later it mad me want to vomit. Literally. made me dizzy and queazy. (Assuming all of this was because of the motion) Just wondering if the binaurals are the same

That's the reason why I'm looking for alternatives.

For Omni's you definitely have the option to move around a little bit, but you still should be facing the sound source. Bobbing your head and maybe looking side to side (slightly) is okay. Doing 360's...not ok.

Yes.  With omnis in binaural configuration,... if you move, at all, so does your playback imaging.

There i also this one from Optivelox  http://optivelox.50webs.com/ss0x/ss07.html
It's not a binaural system but  an audio interface to be used both with a stereo mic supplied by them or with whatever else stereo mic terminating with stereo minijack.
The firm is located in italy not far from where I live ( 100 km), but it seems that these product never get on the market. They launched a fundraising campaign last year for this product ( the one I posted) but I don't think they raised what expected.
When I saw the announce in 2016 I wrote an email to them in order to have some more infos, looking for an easy way to improve the audio in smartphone videos.
What they answered was that this USB interface can't directly record on video app but, in parallel, on a dedicated audio recording app ( probably also with other audio apps). So you would have your smartphone doing two recordings at the same time, a "normal" video recording with internal mics and a better audio recording, to be coupled in post.
So, apart from eventual crashing problems due to a huge he phone has to bear vs. the advantage of having a single device, it seem this toy doesn't mean a real step-up compared to a separate audio recorder.
This is referred to the product I posted - SS07 - not to this SS08; however, it seems to me they share the same concept.

I think the ss07 would have a lot of utility for people here, if the ad actually sounds decent. It looks like it provides 4.5V pip, works with line in and mic in. For audio only it eliminates the need for a dedicated recorder. Very small form factor, I may procure.
