Earthworks Flex Mic FM500HC Hypercardioid Condenser Mic

Hypercardioid directional microphone for podium and choir with 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range - 19"
MFR# FM500/HC

Product Description

The Earthworks Flex Mic FM500HC hypercardioid microphone offers exceptional intelligibility and sound quality. Their patented pick-up pattern allows an orator to move up to 90 degrees off-axis and still be heard with exceptional intelligibility and sound quality. This is a real advantage for church, civic and corporate podium speech applications. As an added plus, the Flex Mics smooth off-axis response will provide more gain before feedback. The flexible neck allows adjustment of microphone positioning with no handling noise.

Flex Mics are intended for podium use, however they can also be used as hanging choir or orchestra microphones. Their sound quality is comparable to our other high quality cardioids for a variety of applications such as vocals, piano, acoustic instruments and even drums. They are flat from 50 Hz to 20 kHz within +2 dB at 6 inches and will handle up to 145 dB SPL. In addition to smooth frequency response (on and off-axis), they have impressive impulse response, diaphragm settling time and pristine sound quality that is not usually available in podium microphones. Earthworks Flex Mics provide high intelligibility for clear audible communication.

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.
