Advice for Microphone

Hi Everyone,

I hate to bother you all but I require some professional advice with selecting an certain type of microphone and sadly I haven't had much luck in the area of research. So any advice would greatly appreciated.

I am currently seeking - A microphone capable of picking up the smallest sound pressure possible and the lowest frequencies (Infrasound) as well, from 15 meters.

Does anyone know what could achieve this? Or close to it?

Any good omnidirectional measurement microphone should do what you need. I recommend the Dayton Audio MM6 as an affordable choice: https://www.parts-express.com/Dayton-Audio-EMM-6-Electret-Measurement-Microphone-390-801
