Great little module
tomas., 22.05.2020
Pros:
The price you're getting for the functionality of this module is superb - at least for me, the ability to plug in external gear alone, be it a little pocket operator or a synth, or even a guitar is a huge game changer, all that mere for 99 €; that is the piezo pickup built in not considered - which is also fun.
Of course the pros of this module do not end there: they build is sturdy, the gate and envelope follower give you some nice modulation sources from the 'outside' of the electronic world and it comes with a little whipping-top.

Cons:
I've yet to find some more serious ones, but the proximity of the inputs and outputs made it difficult to plug in sources with beefier jack ends so that they don't block the rest of the outputs.

Not just a contact microphone!
Lavi, 22.07.2018
I use this module a lot. The envelope, and the gate received and generated from the audio input, plus its overall characteristic sound makes it an interesting and very useful module in a modular system. Very good build quality - special design and functions!

Lots of fun in 4hp.
Richard Hamilton, 16.07.2017
I bought Ears so that I could bring an Arturia Microbrute's signals up to modular levels, which it does very well. I initially considered a Doepfer A-119, which is cheaper, but the contact microphone looked like fun, so I spent a little extra on this.

For only 4hp there's a lot packed into a small space. I've made good use of the gate that is generated by the incoming audio, but the envelope follower is something I've not explored much yet

Overall, the module sounds good, looks good, and I'd recommend it to anybody needing an input module.
