About this product

Overview

Product overview

• Condenser desktop microphone that is ideal for recording audio such as demo tracks or interviews
• Omnidirectional & unidirectional pickup that allows you to pick up either a single person’s audio or an entire room
• 3.5mm connector with 6.35mm adaptor allows you to connect the microphone to a wide range of recording equipment
• 4m cable length to allow you to position the microphone exactly where it is needed
• A sensitivity of -63dBv to give you a good response to quieter sounds

What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone sits directly on a stand and connects directly into a 3.5mm audio socket which will allow it to be connected to a wide range of audio equipment such as computers, dictaphones and other recording equipment. This will allow you to quickly setup anywhere with this microphone and to begin recording whatever you need. This could be an interview or a broadcast from an event to be edited into a radio or internet program or even for making audio notes as part of a project. This microphone can be set up on a desk or table top for a recording. Simply start the recording and ignore the microphone, allowing you to dedicate your concentration on the actual recording instead of the equipment.

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 of the audio of an instrument or voice. Using phantom power from the 3.5mm 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use 4 of these mics to record my band live and in stereo. The quality is fantastic. The battery life is not amazing though, and it states that you can't use phantom power. So if you want quality over quantity then go for this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor audio I bought this to go onto a CCTV recorder as part of a surveillance project. The pick up was awful, had to order alternate product.

I need to film a school show and picking up audio is not like my normal gigs of weddings etc, so was thinking a few boundary mics hooked up tons recorder with controllable gain. Would this work? Voices not clear enough? Too much floor noise pick up?

Asked by: Andy9761
Unfortunately, we are unable to advise on what would be the best equipment to use for recording a show. We can provide full specifications for the items we sell but the implementation is down to the individual purchasing the item, I wold recommend asking for advice from somebody with a sound engineering background.

Looking to use this for holding conference calls, using my iphone.  Assume this is ideal for this?

Asked by: Gary
Unfortunately we couldn't guarantee compatibility as this has been designed for use with a dedicated mono mic input. As the iPhone uses a 4-pole headphone socket for mic input it may not achieve the intended results.
