Beyerdynamic has a brand new studio-grade USB microphone known as the Fox. It’s priced at $179, which is aggressive with related merchandise from Blue, Apogee, Rode, Shure, and different corporations. The Fox is accessible for preorder in the present day and begins transport on July 16th.
Beyerdynamic is advertising and marketing the mic in direction of musicians, positive, but additionally podcasters, online game streamers, and different customers who wish to step up the audio high quality of their work with a plug-and-play gadget that’s comparatively transportable. “Speech and vocal recordings, podcasts, and bold acoustic performances could be realized effortlessly,” the corporate says.
The big-diaphragm condenser mic has a built-in headphone jack for monitoring, which is essential should you’ll be doing cell recording with an iPhone 7 or later. On the entrance are dials for headphone quantity, combine (for balancing the sign between PC/cell audio and the mic itself), and a mute button. Recording sampling price goes as much as 24 bit/96 kHz.
Included with the Fox mic are a USB-C to USB-A cable, wind display screen, and a foot plate to provide it good, sturdy positioning on a desk. Sadly it doesn’t appear as if Beyerdynamic can be bundling Lightning or USB-C adapters within the field for individuals who want them, so that you’l have to purchase these individually. Apogee principally covers all bases with the pack-ins you get with the Mic Plus, so I hoped to see that flexibility right here. Nope. Simply the one cable. However should you’re becoming a member of the podcast legions and belief Beyerdynamic’s sound status over one in every of this mic’s many alternate options, the Fox is likely to be price plugging in and attempting out.
