Superior Impulse Response - the speed and accuracy with which a microphone responds to a signal with fast rise times such as percussion, guitar and brass. This helps retain the attack, punch and excitement in recorded music and sounds.
Fast Diaphragm Settling Time - how long it takes a diaphragm to return to rest. If a microphone’s diaphragm is still vibrating from previous sounds while it is trying to pick up new sounds, it adds coloration and smearing of low-level signals that contain important minute details.
Pick-up Pattern Technology - maintaining accuracy and uniform frequency response throughout the pick-up pattern. With this improved uniformity there is no spotlighting, less off-axis phase problems and more gain before feedback.
Extended Frequency Response - capturing high frequency details and overtones is a clear advantage when using today’s higher sampling rates for recording. Our proprietary technology provides higher frequency response, better impulse response and time domain accuracy, which will capture overtones and details that conventional microphones mask.
You will be astonished when you first use an Earthworks Microphone. You will hear more clarity, detail and transparency than you have ever heard from a microphone. Musical instruments and vocalists will sound more real, vibrant and alive. Earthworks microphones have superior performance because of their advanced pick-up patterns; they work better than conventional cardioid and omni microphones. Our microphones come in 20kHz, 25kHz, 30kHz, 40kHz and 50kHz models with a variety of advanced pick-up patterns. You can choose the microphone that best suits your requirements and pocketbook. Remember, the higher the frequency response, the better the impulse response.
