Description

Josephson Series Seven microphones provide unprecedented flexibility in studio pickups with a variety of directional patterns. The Josephson C716 dual-diaphragm capsule is optimized for cardioid, and is ideal for vocal pickups and instrumentals where a warm, natural sound is needed with minimum acoustic coloration. Off-axis response is particularly smooth, yielding excellent results in a variety of acoustic environments.

The C716 features a cardioid version of the large dual-diaphragm capsule used in Josephson’s C700 series, with a 5 micron evaporated gold diaphragm. The head grille uses Josephson’s patented hard metal foam structure welded to the housing tube, instead of wire mesh or perforated metal. No other structure is needed, so internal reflections are randomized for clean, detailed sound pickup. The entire housing, circuit board, capsule and all its internal parts are made by Josephson in the USA. The microphone features a hard matte black chrome finish for durability in studio use.

The internal circuitry uses a class-A FET front end with active balanced transformer-less output using discrete large-geometry devices like those in the Josephson C700 and C617. The internal high voltage linear supply generates capsule polarization voltage without using any digital devices or oscillators, for very low noise.

The capsule assembly in the C716 is internally shock mounted so that the mic may be attached directly to a stand through its rugged yoke mount, without using any external accessories.
