K-Tek Introduces Airo Brand Pro Audio Tools

K-Tek has introduced Airo by K-Tek, a new line of essential audio tools designed for content creators of all types who require affordable professional audio sound for their video. 

Although the Airo brand is new, the company behind it, K-Tek, has been making pro audio tools for the past 21 years. Utilizing that depth of experience and input from professional operators, the Airo line provides a variety of fundamental tools from boom poles to mixer bags at prices to suit entry-level users.

Launching with six essential tools, the basic Airo Boom Pole 1 (ABP1) is a practical pro-style, $100 solution to support the microphone close to the audio source when recording. With a collapsed length of three feet, 2.5 inches and an extended length of ten feet, ten inches, the 1.6-pound Boom Pole is made of black anodized aluminum and features rubberized collars and a foam grip to reduce unwanted handling noise.

A trusted boom holder is essential for sit-down interview situations or when the microphone remains suspended in one spot. The Airo Boom Holder 1 (ABH1) is made in the United States and is priced under $50. It is built of black anodized aluminum and features a padded cradle to protect the boom.

A shock mount is vital for shotgun mics. The Airo Shock Mount 1, (ASM1) uses K-Tek’s microphone suspenders to isolate the mic from vibration and cushions it when the boom is swinging. Offering the functionality of expensive professional shock mounts in a more basic package, the ASM1 is listed at $29.95.

To transport audio equipment, Airo offers a carry bag and a unique mixer solution with loads of professional effective advantages.

“After working with top recordists for over two decades, we have a deep understanding of which key products are needed, and as a manufacturer we are able to offer high quality, yet basic tools, at entry level prices,” said Brenda Klemme, K-Tek’s CEO.
