I've checked almost all the binaural questions, but please excuse me if it has already been answered. I normally record fake-binaural with my DPA4060's sticking out of my headphones (DT770). I'm wondering how one monitors the levels/audio when recording in-ear binaural.
Do you check levels beforehand and assume everything will be fine as long as it's not too loud? Or are there binaural mic's out there with small earphones in them, that allow soft monitoring levels?
I've had a pair of in-ear binaural mics for a few months now (Soundman OKM II) and not being able to monitor has been one of the main drawbacks. However, I think the positives definitely outweigh the negatives. I generally record blind and have often had moments where I thought I'd recorded something amazing only to find out later that the recording had been ruined by wind noise (another drawback to in-ear binaurals) or some other unwanted factor. It took me quite some time before I got to know at what level I should be recording at and when I should apply a -20dB cut, but once over that little learning curve I have rarely had problems with the recordings I've made.
