A hydrophone configuration provides compensation for longitudinal accelerations by placing two essentially identical solid ceramic piezoelectric elements back-to-back against a centrally located bulkhead in a strong cylindrical metal housing. The opposite ends of the elements are bonded to end caps which are mechanically sealed to the inside walls of the housing. The inside walls are spaced from the elements to allow any radial expansion or contraction of the elements to take place into an air chamber which is effectively isolated from the input to the hydrophone which is axial against the outside surfaces of the end caps. In a second embodiment two pairs of parallel-connected piezoelectric elements are included for a higher capacitance.
