    Product description

    The H2d hydrophone is designed to offer great sensitivity and low self noise in the human auditory range while being rugged, compact and affordable. Its small, streamlined shape and high specific gravity will help maintain a low working depth in mild wind and currents. Its compact size and flexible cable make it very portable and simple to use. It is available with either XLR or 3.5mm TRS output connectors to work with nearly every recording device with a microphone input. If both output types are needed, the user can easily adapt between the two. When both output connectors are needed, we recommend using the more robust XLR connection and adapting to 3.5mm when needed.

    The H2d utilizes the new CS6 signal conditioning board, which offers approximately 10dB better sensitivity and signal-to noise, as compared with the CS4 board that was included in the H2a.

    XLR output (H2dX)

    Used with any microphone preamp with mating connector and phantom power. In most cases, these preamps will be built into a digital recorder, mixer, professional video camera or PA system. Phantom power is required and will likely need to be switched on in your device. Any phantom voltage will work. 48V is standard, but we recommend using the lowest voltage available for lowest power consumption and noise. For more information and limited specifications, see H2dX User Guide.
