Earthworks ETHOS XLR Broadcasting Microphone

Voice-over quality XLR condenser broadcast microphone with supercardioid polar pattern featuring a natural, smooth sibilance, with a generous sweet spot and gentle proximity effect


Product Description

Earthworks has built a reputation for delivering impact through authentic presence and clarity — and while those attributes alone might make for a compelling broadcast mic — the Earthworks ETHOS XLR Broadcast Microphone pushes further with intimacy and warmth that manages to feel as though it is responding to the charisma of each voice while simultaneously anticipating the needs of engineers.

The Sound of Your Voice

In audio, our perception of what feels real and natural is incredibly sensitive to resolution in the time domain. In particular, the level of detail present in the initial transient is responsible for much of our sense of content, meaning, and frequency balance. This includes defining attributes like “timbre”, “texture”, and “air”. Earthworks’ blazingly fast technology at the core of ETHOS ensures that every performance sounds like life.

Cutting Edge Plosive & Wind Noise Protection

ETHOS is equipped with a windscreen stack that raises the bar for plosive and wind noise protection. It is easy to clean or to replace and the foam, mesh, and steel combination makes it unlikely to require additional aftermarket augmentation for even the most zealous vocal personalities.

Minimal Handling Noise

ETHOS is naturally resistant to handling noise and thumps thanks to internal dampening and robust stainless steel construction. The included Triad-Orbit M2-R ball joint mic adaptor allows precise placement and adjustments and is ideally suited to pair with a heavy mic arm or stand for optimal results.


  • Plays well with all voices, and offers the flavor of broadcast with the clarity of Earthworks Audio

  • Tight supercardioid polar pattern

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
