The Ambient "Sound Fish" Hydrophone ASF-1

The ASF-1 is completely designed and manufactured by Ambient Recording in response all the requests for a professional-quality, yet affordable hydrophone designed specifically for use with standard audio gear. We exceeded our expectations.  The result is an extremely natural sounding, low noise underwater microphone. Well, it took us nearly 3 years but finally we did it.

Crystal clear, low noise audio from infra- to ultrasound

With the development of the Ambient "Sound Fish" we focused on high audio quality with best handling. Therefore we designed a linear, low distortion microphone preamp offering a linear frequency response from 10Hz- 40kHz. 

Works with standard 48V Phantom power

Following our idea to create an underwater microphone for professional sound recordists, we worked hard to build a hydrophone which can be fed directly from standard 48V Phantom power. Thus, this microphone works right out of the box with all professional audio gear using standard XLR connections. No adapters are required!

Waterproof up to 100m

The ASF-1 is machined out of high-quality, stainless steel (V4A) and can easily withstand the water pressure of 100m depth. Additionally, the cable material (specially formulated NBR, V4A polyurethane) was selected for its long term resistance against seawater corrosion.

Included 10m underwater cable with professional underwater connector

Within the purchased parts package we included a 10 meter underwater cable with sealed AHS V4a underwater connector. Thus, the AFS-1 can be used right out of the box without additional adapters or cables. Other cable lengths are available on request.
