Sanken CO-100K Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone
The Sanken CO-100K is the first 100 kHz microphone in the world designed for actual professional recording, not for measurement purposes. A revolutionary microphone designed with NHK’s Science & Technical Research Laboratories, it is Sanken's response to those enthusiastic engineers who wish to record frequencies as high as 100 kHz. After rigorous test recordings, it was found that this microphone is especially suited for classical music, acoustic instrument and sound effect recording. Prominent owners have used two CO-100K in stereo pairs, overall string sections, and in four and five channel arrays for surround and front of orchestra.
Within the conventional "audible frequency" band of 20 Hz to 20 kHz the performance is exemplary, and clearly different. But the CO-100K also provides the opportunity to experience musical sounds far beyond the typically accepted upper frequency limit. The CO-100K is a new step in microphone technology, providing new realms of musical detail and nuance that has never before been possible.

Before the Sanken CO-100K first came out, we reviewed a pair of these mics and wrote it up here: https://www.prosoundnetwork.com/gear-and-technology/review-sanken-co-100k-100-khz-super-wide-range-condenser-microphone
Since then they have been our go-to room microphones. We recently bought a second pair, and have used them in a variety of novel ways that we are in the process of describing. These mics SHINE when you need to cover a larger sound environment and you don’t want to lose high end.
Incredibly unique mic. I use it for sound effects recording at 192kHz for extreme pitch shifting and manipulation in sound design for feature films. It has proven an invaluable tool for expanding my sonic palette and offering up a range of new possibilities for recording new source material.
Highly recommend this mic for creatives looking to achieve something similar.
