Bad Idea Of The Day

What the hell?  No, really, what the hell???

The Binaural Mic from Otokinoko… is a simple way to record the most realistic sounds possible. Binaural recording allows you to record sounds the same way they are heard in real life by placing the two microphones in the same position as human ears. The resulting playback in omnidirectional 3D sound is more realistic than normal stereo because of the subtle shifts in feeling.

First of all, the mics are not in the same position as human ears unless you have a really really tiny head.

Second of all, is there any technological reason why they have to be shaped exactly like gray human ears?

Third of all, what the hell???
