Earthworks Ships 40kHz High Definition FlexMic Podium Mics

earthworks-flexmic-1014Earthworks has expanded its FlexMic Series of podium microphones to include 40kHz High Definition models, which feature an extended frequency response from 50Hz to 40kHz.

The original FlexMic models feature a 50Hz to 20kHz frequency response, while the new High Definition models have 50Hz to 40kHz response that the company says offers even greater clarity and intelligibility than the 20kHz models.

All FlexMic and HD FlexMic models feature a new slimmer 7 millimeter diameter gooseneck, and a shorter tip, providing an overall lower profile. The FM and FMHD models feature a fully flexible gooseneck, while the FMR and FMRHD models have a rigid center with flex at both ends. All FlexMic models are available with either cardioid or hyper-cardioid polar patterns in 13, 19, 23 and 27 inch overall lengths.

Every standard and HD FlexMic utilize Earthworks’ patented polar technology, which allows speakers to move as much as 90 degrees off-axis to either side, above or below the mic and still maintain the same sound quality with high intelligibility. All FlexMic and HD FlexMic models are currently shipping and specs are here.
