All Telinga Parabolic Microphones are designed for the utmost reliablity. They are amazingly light-weight, at around a kilo, and very easy to use. Great care has been taken to solve the most common problems with wildlife recording – wind and handling noise, as well as inherent noise from the microphone and amplifiers. Telinga designs are unique. They have been developed over many years of careful research and continuously updated in co-operation with ornithologists, wildlife film makers and researchers in the field of bio-acoustics.

Unique to the Telinga is its parabolic reflector moulded out of 1.2mm trasparent impact resistant polycarbonate, with a diameter of 580mm (23inches) Virtually unbreakable even in very tough field conditions it will withstand crushing and can still be bounced back out to its previous shape, remaining useable even if a bit worse for wear. The dish is flexible and rolls up into a cigar-shape approximately 150mm (6 inches) diameter. It tolerates a wide range of temperature from -50 to +100 C.

The Telinga Pro System is made up of the handle, the parabolic dish and the microphone.

The handle contains the electronics to power the microphone and is somewhat similar to the body of a camera with a choice of microphones resembling interchangeable lenses that can rapidly be changed over in the field. Distant sounds are focused by the parabolic dish which gives a ten times acoustical gain effectively making the recordist 10 x closer to the sound source. The microphone is positioned at the focal point of the dish which is adjustable

The Pro Series has a variety of handles to suit different recording sytems. Then mono or stereo Telinga microphones can be fitted to suit your requirements.

The Pro 8 Mark2 handle has been designed for the most discerning professional and has phantom powered, balanced outputs, the best frequency response, a high signal to noise ratio and switchable low frequency filter. Mono or stereo Telinga microphones can be fitted to suit your requirements.

The Pro X is a complete ready to record system including our quality microphones with smaller handy recorders (3,5 mm minjack) without having to use a power box or any adapters (XLR option also available). Very similar to Pro 8 set-up without the phantom power.

The Telinga Universal is designed to make use of a favourite or existing microphone in a Telinga parabolic dish and be able to focus in on distant sound.

It has been developed for the recordist who already has an omni-directional mono stick microphone with a diameter of 20 – 25 mm, like the Sennheiser ME62 or MKH20.

*** Your microphone should not exceed 180mm (including plug).***

Why Telinga Microphones make sense for the wildlife recordist

Telinga is one of the very few companies in the world focusing on equipment for the wildlife recordist. Recording outdoors, where the wanted sounds are often weak and distant, and the environmental conditions – such as wind, rain and traffic noise – are out of control, means very different priorities than for a studio microphone.

“Musts” for wildlife recording:

1 – Very good handling and wind noise performance,
2 – very low inherent noise,
3 – acoustical compensation for distance,
4 – resistance to moist and temperature changes,
5 – very easy to pack up, transport and use.

For Telinga The Ultimate perfection means:- 
When the object under test, in this true-to-life situation, reproduces the same sound spectrum as the reference microphone that is placed close to the source.

For wildlife recording factors such as the max sound pressure level and immunity to induced electrical noise are less significant. Most of all, our focus on wildlife recording has had a strong impact on our measuring techniques: The standard techniques normally used in the studio situation have proved not to be relevant.
