For its initial debut, 512 Audio is introducing five products built to help creators capture speech and vocals:
- Limelight ($199.99): a dynamic vocal XLR mic for talk-focused podcasts, broadcasts or livestreams. It includes a combination of a modern circuit and professional dynamic capsule. 512 says Limelight’s hyper-cardioid pattern creates a hyper-focused pickup field to capture voice and cut out unwanted ambient noise. The built-in pop shield and switchable, low-frequency filter can also remove intrusive plosives and low-end rumble.
- Skylight ($199.99): a large-diaphragm condenser XLR microphone featuring a 34-mm gold-plated capsule. It is engineered with a voice-tailored frequency response to capture speech and singing vocals. With a fixed cardioid pickup pattern, 512 says Skylight records voice in front of the mic and reduces ambient room noise. The included metal mesh pop filter and low-profile shockmount can also eliminate unwanted plosives and low-end rumble.
- 512-BBA Boom Arm ($79.99): an adjustable microphone boom arm with a 360-degree rotation and high-tension spring designed for stay-in-place mic positioning.
- Academy Headphones ($99.99): studio monitor headphones with 45-mm dynamic drivers. According to 512, they are ergonomically designed and have an acoustic seal.
- 512-Pop Professional Microphone Pop Filter ($39.99): a metal mesh pop filter to achieve clear speech and vocals.
Limelight, Skylight, the 512-BBA boom arm and the 512-Pop filter are all available now. Academy studio monitor headphones will be available in October.
