Single point stereo microphones are microphones that record stereo sound and transfer that sound using a single plug—the single point. Some have dual microphone elements in a single capsule (whether a single cylindrical-shaped microphone, a T-shaped microphone) and others have two separate elements that are wired to a single site whether by a gooseneck connection or two cables that connect to a common plug.

The overwhelming majority of single point stereo mics end in a stereo miniplug, and are the suitable choice for portable recorders that accept stereo mini microphone inputs.

Common styles:

  • compact T-microphones (shown)
  • specialty stereo mics designed for specific recorders (shown, for iPod)
  • compact cylinder microphones
  • dual mini mics on gooseneck (shown)
  • dual mics on cable (with sufficient length you have dual lapel mics)

Advantages:

Compact, portable. Well, they are compact

Disadvantages:

Depending on pickup pattern (omnidirectional, unidirectional), they may pick up more or less sound than what you want.
