DE500 Sound Samples:
HUMPBACK WHALE SONG
whales are well known for their long complex songs that
can last for 30 minutes or longer. Only male humpbacks
sing - leading researchers to conclude that they sing
to attract females. Interestingly, all of the males
in an area sing the same song - repeated over and over
- changing but little over the course of the year. Whales
in other areas sing songs with different melodies.
Lower audio frequencies
are attenuated less in seawater than higher frequencies
- thus giving them greater range. Their vocalizations
are easily monitored by the DE500 wireless hydrophone.
Locating a DE500 in the
breeding areas produces spectacular listening even if
you are 12,000 miles away!
