Crane trumpeting before sunrise by Edmunds Racinskis - natureSounds.lv a beautiful recording from a distance with lots of rich ambience in stereo. 

Southern Royal Albatrosses by Hannu Jännes - apart from being an excellent recording this illustrates clearly how the Telinga Stereo microphone works with different sounds coming in and out of focus both near - and further away, and how it translates great in both headphones and speakers.

Above some of our favorite Telinga nature recordings with our Stereo parabolic microphone uploaded by different Soundcloud users. THANK YOU to everyone taking the time to upload and tag your recordings!

Photo: Telinga PRO-8 MK2 System recording in Sochi, Russia. With the Telinga it is possible to collect a mono signal and stereo ambience from "where the action is" - and not just at dish location/nearfield. For stereo recordings at close distance you can easily detach the dish. With the built in switch located at your thumb position the PRO-8 MK2 is the only handle on the market offering to switch between mono, stereo and low-cut (rumble filter) with a simple click. When delivered the system is ready to record (XLR). Total weight is 1.2 Kg / 2.5 Lbs. The complete setup with the rolled up dish can be stored in our Soft Case

The PRO-8 MK2 System is combined by 3 different products:
PRO-8 MK2 handle - the MK2 Stereo Mic and the 1 mm Foldable dish.
