The Cetacean Research Technology C75

The Cetacean Research C75 is a preamplified, spherical hydrophone designed for the detection of low frequency, audible, and ultrasonic sounds. It is omnidirectional.
Stacks Image 97
The Cetacean Research C75 Hydrophone has an omnidirectional receive pattern with very wide frequency response for monitoring up to ultrasonic signals.

The connector is an integral part of the hydrophone. Hydrophones are not individually calibrated but calibrated frequency response measurements can be performed on request.
