Product details

Handheld Condenser Microphone

• Condenser handheld microphone that is ideal for audio recordings within a studio or at home
• Cardioid unidirectional design to limit background noise while picking up all of your vocals
• 6.35mm connector to connect directly to audio recording equipment such as a mixer
• 6m cable included so that you can move around and achieve the best recordings
• A sensitivity of -68dBv allows you to get a good response to quieter sounds
• Powered from one AA battery (not included)

What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone will connect directly to a 6.35mm socket on devices such as a mixer so that setup can be done quickly. A condenser microphone is ideal for recording audio such as demo sound tracks, podcasts or interviews to be transmitted or played back later on.

What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones for recording audio. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all the audio of an instrument or voice. Using phantom power from the 6.35mm socket, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.

What position does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This microphone has a cardioid polar pattern which means it is more sensitive to sound to the front of the unit and least sensitive at the back. The pickup is based in one direction which makes it effective for isolating unwanted sound as well as having a high resistance to feedback from speakers. This makes it a perfect microphone for a recording environment such as a studio.
