The trick will be to find an adapter for the tripod that will accept a mic clip. If you can, you can use a tripod, but it may mean you’d have to move your seating out of the way in order to locate the mic precisely where your head would be in your primary listening position.

Yes my camera tripod accepts the audessey tripod screws in mic holds very tight than adjust legs for proper ear height I've done this for years just wondering if anyone else uses this procedure. The tripod has the screw in with thumb tightened to hold mic very firm

Sure, you can easily use a camera tripod for an Audyssey mic, as well as the mics that come with other AVR auto-calibration systems. However, you canít readily use those mics with REW, and the OP was specifically talking about a Behringer ECM8000 or similar measurement mic in his opening post. Those mics require a standard mic clip. Googling for a tripod mic clip adapter didnít get me much. It will be problematic using a regular measurement mic on a camera tripod without one.

Wayne

This thread adapter will allow you to mount a mic clip on a camera stand.

Re: Microphone stand for measurements at ear height ?

I use a camera tripod for vehicle measurements. However the leather couch vibrates a lot at low frequencies. So for home I just have a microphone boom stand that I picked up for the local music shop - Guitar Center. Floor vibrates some too but certainly less then the leather couch.
