The mic's built-in shock mount helps isolate it from surface vibration noise. And its windscreen ensures pops and sibilants are minimized.

The mic has high sensitivity so it can capture speech clearly. And its balanced transformerless output resists electromagnetic hum and interference — even with long cable runs. Logic input and output terminals let you control the mic remotely or connect it to an automatic mic mixer.
