Spotlight on optional hardware attachments: The SMX-UT ultrasonic microphone

Looking to upgrade your bat recording rig? The SMX-UT is our most powerful and precise tool for omnidirectional bat recording.

As the higher end alternative to our SMX-US ultrasonic microphone, the SMX-UT provides a flatter frequency response and higher sensitivity at frequencies above 60kHz. It records up to 192kHz and it’s weatherproof, just like the standard SMX-US microphone. The SMX-UT has very little reduction in sensitivity off-axis, which means it can record bats in all directions. This is helpful for capturing a larger sampling of bat passes and echolocations.

And if your recording needs require a directional microphone, the SMX-UT is compatible with our SMX Horn accessory. This horn will transform the UT microphone into a highly directional microphone.
