The Avenson Audio STO-2 is a set of two unique microphone that have an outstanding overall sound quality. The microphones are pressure transducer based, which is to emulate the way the human ears pick up sound. They've got an omni directional pick up pattern, with a frequency response ranging from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, which is also just like the human ear. The mics have a unique diaphragm to them, which is very small, as are the microphones in general. The mics comes with a hard shell case that both of them fit in, as well as a set of specialized microphone clips.

OVERALL OPINION

The Avenson Audio STO-2's are perfect for picking up any sound in a stereo pair. I don't know about using each of them individually, as I've only used them as a stereo pair, which of course, is the way that they were intended to be used. The applications that I've used them for include for recording a drum kit (using these are overheads), and for recording a grand piano. For both of these applications, the sound came in crystal clear and totally natural. In fact, the STO-2's are about as natural sounding as most of the microphones I've used. They sounded best to me for recording the piano, as you could really hear every single detail in the sound. While they worked extremely well as drum overheads as well, I don't think I'd replace them using Neumann KM 184's as drum overheads given the choice. The STO-2's are definitely a professional's set of microphones, but the price certainly indicates otherwise! Getting two microphones of this quality, at this price, is really the definition of bang for your buck. Whether you're a professional or a home studio owner, the Avenson Audio STO-2's are a great addition to any microphone collection.
