By PSW Staff • March 2, 2011 A custom-built wireless Blue enCORE 300. Blue Microphones is pleased to reveal that for a few months now they have been working on a very special project. Specifically, they’ve been working behind the scenes with Jimmy Iovine’s team at Interscope Records and Beats by Dre to create a world class microphone for on-stage use by the contestants of American Idol. Beginning with last night’s performances, American Idol debuted this new wireless microphone custom-built specifically for this season’s performers. Combining the sonic detail, clarity, and unique head design of Blue’s enCORE 300, the style of Beats by Dre, and pioneering new digital wireless technology from Line 6, Blue’s latest innovation is now rocking the American Idol stage! While this wireless microphone system is specifically built for American Idol (for now), the wired version of the microphone, Blue’s enCORE 300 is currently commercially available.
