"That can't be! My audio receptors must be malfunctioning!"
C-3PO[src]

An audio sensor, auditory sensor, audio receptor, auditory sensor recorder[1] or sound sensor was a type of sensor that detected the sort of atmospheric vibrations that organic beings perceived as sound. They were able to detect frequencies in a broader range than organic hearing devices. Audio sensors were colloquially referred to as audio pickups or auditory pickups.[1]

These sensors were featured on many droid models, such as Holowan Laboratories IG-88 assassin droid models.

Audio sensors could be mounted externally on starships, to relay sound from outside the ship so it could be heard by someone inside it.[2]
