Earecorder / Recorder


You have never recorded exactly same sound you hear. Every time we record, the sound recorded in recorder was different from what we heard. That is because the sound waves we get are different from recorders get. That is because of the pinna, which collect and transfer more sound waves to our eardrum. Because of this reason, to record what we hear, we have to record in our ear. That's how I came up with the Earecorder, record what you hear.
