Micro instrument intended rather to the scene. Cardioid electret.
For use with battery (AA standard) or better on phantom power (performance is much improved).
Comes with pliers, a saccoche and a windscreen that I rarely used to say what it's worth.


I use it for a little less than a year, especially in ORTF pair associated with a video camera (with a basic mixer to provide phantom power), and sometimes instruments (acoustic guitar, bass, accordion). This mic is very versatile. It is suitable for the voice in the interview, provided enough away from the microphone of the mouth. on the other hand, on stage, provide something essential to limit the plosives.
Its bandwidth is wide is linear (30Hz-20kHz). What I like most is its sweetness: the sound is never loud. The bass is a bit messy, not top a cello or double bass.
Paid 155 euros each. With experience, I would do maybe that choice, unless a pair of Oktava ... but they do not work on battery (useful when you find yourself out and about without mains supply nearby - that's what I decided at that time). In any case, I am totally satisfied. Even home-studio, it replaces the electrostatic pseudo-Neumann in the same price range.
