Ważna informacja techniczna dla użytkowników WildlifeAcoustics


 Ważna informacja techniczna dla użytkowników WildlifeAcoustics - prosimy o zapoznanie się z informacja dotycząca możliwych usterek w mikrofonach przesłana przez producenta


Mechanical issue with a small number of SMM Series Microphones

(Includes SMX-U1, SMM-U1, SMM-A1 and SMM-A2 microphones)

Dear valued customer,

We strive for 100% reliability in our products so you can count on Wildlife Acoustics equipment for trouble free deployments. So when we recently discovered a manufacturing process issue causing 1% of our SMM series microphones to fail prematurely, we moved quickly to fully understand and correct the problem. While 99% of the microphones sold to date will be trouble free for years, we find the 1% early failure rate to be completely unacceptable because we know how important reliable data collection is to you. In this email, you will find instruction on how to test your microphones to see if they are affected. Also, rest assured that we will replace any microphones affected at no cost. And to demonstrate our faith and confidence in our microphones, we are hereby extending our microphone warranty for SMM-series microphones and the SMX-U1 microphone retroactively to 18 months, even against weather.

The specific problem we discovered is an inconsistent application of adhesives resulting in a weakness in two mechanical joints in the microphone assembly. This can result in the microphones coming apart at one of these joints. It is easy for you to test the two joints to make sure this issue does not affect your microphones.

First, if you remove the windscreen, you will see a black plastic inset adhered to the end of the stainless steel tube.



This joint is designed to be weak (allowing for the microphone element itself to be serviceable), but should be strong enough to withstand a light pull. You can test this joint by holding the stainless steel tube with one hand and rubbing your thumb up the tube against the black plastic insert as though you are trying to flip it off the top. The insert should not pull up out of the tube.

Second, there is a joint between the stainless steel tube and a stainless steel plug at the base of the connector. If you hold the tube in one hand and pull on the connector as if trying to pull the connector out of the tube, the parts should not come apart.

Try to avoid rotating the black plastic connector housing relative to the metal tube. It should not be so loose that it can rotate under light finger pressure, but will rotate if you use more force.

In addition to these mechanical checks, always be sure to check your microphones before deployment by making test recordings and/or using a calibrator to make sure your deployments will be successful. If your microphones fail any of the above mechanical tests (or fail to calibrate or fail to make test recordings) we will repair or replace them at no charge under warranty up to 18 months after the date of purchase. Please report any issues to so we can get you up and running again as quickly as possible.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes and thank you for your continued faith in us as a reliable partner to meet your bioacoustics monitoring needs.

Sincerely yours,

Ian Agranat, CEO

Changes to the Wildlife Acoustics product lineup


At Wildlife Acoustics, our mission is to continually develop new and better products – while delivering support and service for the products you’ve purchased from us over the years. Toward that mission, this email provides an update on the future availability of products you may own.

SM2+ and SM2BAT+ recorders and accessories will continue to be sold through 2016 and then will not be available. If you anticipate needing SM2+ or SM2BAT+ recorders in 2016, please contact us for availability as these will only be built as demand warrants. We will continue to honor warranties, and service these products for years to come. Please consider the SM4 or the SM4BAT as superior alternatives.

If you need to create time-synchronized recordings for localization and/or produce a schedule that does very different things on different days, the SM3 is the recorder of choice. And if you need to capture any combination of birds or other wildlife on a second channel, SM3BAT is the way to go.

SMX-US/SMX-UT ultrasonic microphones for SM2BAT+ recorders have been discontinued. The microphone sensor element used in these microphones was discontinued by Knowles and can no longer be sourced. The SMX-U1 replaces these for use with SM2BAT and provides superior recording performance and weather durability. We will continue to honor warranties.

The SMZC recorder has been replaced by the SM4BAT ZC. We will continue to honor warranties, and service SMZC recorders for years to come.

Echo Meter EM3+ is no longer available and has been replaced by Echo Meter Touch. Even with the cost of an iOS device (e.g. US$199 for an iPod Touch), weatherproof/shockproof case, and extension cable, the Echo Meter Touch is lower cost, while featuring superior graphics and recording quality to the EM3+. We will continue to honor warranties, and service the Echo Meter EM3+ for years to come.

We look forward to your continued business. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact ECOTONE or directly Wildlife Acoustics

WAŻNA wiadomość dla użytkowników Echo Meter Touch


 WAŻNA wiadomość dla użytkowników Echo Meter Touch

WiFi Transfer Bug in 1.7 version of Echo Meter Touch app

Dear Echo Meter Touch User,

We wanted to let you know that a bug was introduced in version 1.7 of the app which will corrupt recordings when off-loaded via Wi-Fi. iTunes transfer works as normal but all files transferred via Wi-Fi will be corrupted. The files on the iOS device are, however, undamaged and we have a fix we will be releasing in a 1.7.1 update. We hope to get this out in the next couple days and then it will take somewhere around 7 days to get through the Apple approval process.

We are very sorry for letting this bug slip out and will work as hard as we can to expedite the fix! In addition, we are pleased to note that 1.7.1 will include a fix for the audio "stuttering" and "buffering" issues that have affected some customers.

Kind regards

The Wildlife Acoustics Support Team

Important news for SM2BAT+ owners


Important news for SM2BAT+ owners

We recently received the following product bulletin from Wildlife Acoustics. Please read the following carefully and if you have any questions please contact ECOTONE or Wildlife Acoustics on the email address below.

Prevent Microphone Damage from Electrostatic Discharge

We have determined that a number of recently reported field failures of microphones are due to unintended electrostatic discharge.

In one scenario, cabled microphones mounted on fiberglass, plastic, or other non-conductive masts may fail when an electrostatic charge builds up from dry air moving over the mast until it can discharge through the microphone. In another scenario, electrostatic charge in the atmosphere during an electrical storm can discharge through a cabled microphone mounted on an ungrounded mast. In both of these scenarios, the microphone can be permanently damaged resulting in significant or total loss of sensitivity.

If you extend our microphones on a pole or a mast of any kind or height, the pole must be properly grounded/earthed to prevent electrostatic discharge through the microphone.

Additionally, you should continue to follow our recommendations for weatherproofing. Make sure the foam windscreen is in good condition and that there is an air pocket inside the foam windscreen between the tip of the microphone and the foam, make sure the hydrophobic membrane is not torn or loose, and keep the microphone pointed horizontally or at a downward angle. In high wind situations, we recommend pointing microphones straight down.

Please contact us at if you have any questions or concerns.
