Condenser microphone

This side-address cardioid condenser microphone is for vocal recording. With a tailored frequency response and extensive internal and external pop filtering, the single-pattern, dual-diaphragm design exhibits an ultra-wide dynamic range and exceptionally smooth proximity control for studio applications. A highly consistent cardioid polar pattern creates a broad sweet spot and natural off-axis response. Its dual-diaphragm design features an active-front, ultra-thin, 2.5 micron, 24-karat gold, low-mass, 1" mylar diaphragm.
