Description

Earthworks Flex Series microphones offer 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 50Hz to 20kHz within + 2dB at 6 inches and will handle up to 145dB 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.
