Lewitt may initiate a new studio revolution with its two new condenser microphones, which are introduced at NAMM 2014 this weekend.

The Lewitt LCT 550 is a condenser large diaphragm studio microphone that, according to the manufacturer, manages to generate an electronic 0dB-A self noise (3dB-A), which could allows for capturing the weakest signals.

The microphone features a clipping history and an auto-attenuation mode that will change to the next attenuation level if the signal is too loud.

Specifications :

  • Condenser pressure gradient microphone
  • Cardioid polar pattern
  • 1mm capsule and gold-plated diaphragm
  • Frequency response: 20Hz - 20kHz
  • Sensitivity: 36mV/Pa (-29dBV)
  • Signal/Noise ratio: 91dB-A
  • Dynamic range: 140dB-A
  • 3-position pre-attenuation pad: 0dB, 6dB, 12dB
  • 2 high-pass filter : 12dB/octave at 80Hz and 6dB/octave at 160Hz
  • Max SPL: 143dB (0dB pad), 149dB (6dB pad), 155dB (12dB pad)
  • Gold-plated XLR connector
  • Dimensions: 158 x 52 x 36mm
  • Weight: 452g

The second microphone is designed for home studio and mobile musicians who want to record directly to their computer or mobile device in any situation. The DGT 650 is a USB stereo model equipped with a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. It offers 4 operation modes for stereo (XY with a 90° angle), stereo line in (records two channels from the mixer or a line source), cardioid (standard) or voice and instrument (outputs one mono signal and a line level signal at the same time) operations. You will also be able to add a MIDI signal to all these modes.


  • Condenser pressure gradient microphone
  • 2 XY capsules for stereo recording
  • Frequency response: 20Hz - 20kHz
  • Digital resolution : 24-bit
  • Sample rates: 44,1kHz, 48kHz and 96kHz
  • Analog gain between 0dB and 40dB
  • Pre-attenuation pad : 10dB and 20dB
  • 2 low-cut filters : 12dB/octave at 80Hz and 160Hz
  • Powered by the USB port or a built-in rechargeable battery
  • Line input
  • Headphone output with level between -60dB and 0dB
  • ASIO and Core Audio compliant

Both microphones ship in a case with a shockmount, a windshield and a faux-leather gigbag. Discover these new models at
