Default Microphone for Pilot

Someone had mentioned about recording with the Insignia. I found this and thought I'd start a thread so you could find the answer easier.

$70?? Better be one hell of a mic...

Unfortunately, this particular mic wouldn't work with the Pilot--it needs to be powered. There are tons on ebay for $10-$20

Wow, that mic is awfully expensive and looks horrible. I'm still confused about how to record voice on the pilot. Maybe posting a thread about it is better.

So that brings the price up $140... Somehow it just doesn't seem right connecting that to a $100 player...

Obviously mics like this have a specificic audience. I paid about $300 for my powered binaural mics. A $20 eBay mic will work fine for recording lectures where fidelity isn't a requirement but doesn't compare at all with a professional grade mic for recording music.

Thanks for the link OP - this setup looks interesting. The fact that the battery box is made to look like a pager is really an awesome idea for stealth recording. As it stands I have to stash my battery box on my crotch o_O
