Blue Microphones announces the availability of its flagship performance condenser microphone, the en•CORE 300, the latest in the en•CORE series of performance microphones introduced last fall, which includes the en•CORE 100 dynamic mic, en•CORE 200 active dynamic mic, and the en•CORE 100i dynamic mic for capturing instrumental sounds.
The en•CORE 300 contains the latest proprietary Blue condenser capsule technology with an open architecture design and reinforced build for high-quality stage performance.
The en•CORE 300 is built upon Blue’s custom-tuned condenser capsule technology used in its studio line. In the en•CORE 300, this studio-grade condenser capsule is mounted on a rubber suspension system and coupled with a phantom powered circuit specifically tuned to match the capsule for excellent sound quality. This design allows it to produce vocal clarity with consistent tone and low noise, regardless of the cable length on stage.
“The en•CORE 300 is the next best thing to bringing our top studio mics on stage,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. “When the recording session ends, singers can now enjoy the same Blue sound they get in the studio, gig after gig.”
The unique look of the en•CORE 300 serves more than just aesthetics; en•CORE’s open architecture design maximizes air volume in the capsule chamber, resulting in uninterrupted sound regardless of how the microphone is gripped. This design allows for unceasing open air surrounding the top and bottom of the capsule, which reduces in-chamber resonances, producing a more natural, continuous sound. The Blue logo has LED backlighting to indicate active phantom power in the preamp circuit.
The new mic features a reinforced chassis that doubles as a protective frame for the capsule, along with a heavy-gauge zinc barrel grip to protect microphone components and reduce resonance. The electro-plated parts and hardened paint finishes allow for maximum scratch resistance.
The en•CORE 300 is now available – MSRP $199, at numerous pro audio retailers.
