Holophone has unveiled two single-channel microphones, with the new Big O omnidirectional and C+ cardioid joining the company’s recently announced Super C supercardioid condenser.
The Big O is a full-frequency, 20 Hz-20 kHz omnidirectional mic offering an articulate and natural tone, minimal proximity effect, and an eye-catching look. Available in matched pairs, primary applications include drum overheads, acoustic guitars, large vocal groups and choirs.
The C+ cardioid condenser combines good feedback rejection with a warm, articulate tone. It has a rugged metal exterior and classic design that looks great on a stand or in the hand.
The three new mics are designed with the same proprietary technology employed in the company’s surround microphones. All offer ultra-low handling noise, internal pop filters, and comfortable ergonomic design.
“We’ve designed these new microphones to be more than just the best sounding mics you’ll ever use,” comments Holophone CEO Jonathan Godfrey. “They’re also designed to enhance your stage and give your performance that extra edge. Finally, the microphone can claim its rightful place as an instrument in its own right. You wouldn’t hide your guitar, so why hide your mic?”
