beyerdynamic Introduces Fox USB Microphone

beyerdynamic has debuted its new USB microphone — Fox — for recording speech, vocals, podcasts or music.

beyerdynamic said Fox features a high-quality microphone capsule, as found in its professional studio microphones. This large-membrane condenser microphone provides high sensitivity compared to common dynamic microphones.

The Fox’s cardioid polar pattern shields against rear-incident noise, providing protection against background noise. The elastic suspension on the microphone capsule prevents structure-borne noise.

The engineers at beyerdynamic fit all the components needed for professional recording into the compact mic. Integrated Cirrus Logic converters offer up to 24 bit at a sampling frequency of 96 kHz. A single USB cable links the microphone to a computer while the headphones plug directly into the microphone.

A button on the back of the microphone regulates the gain and enables use of the Fox for especially loud sources. A mute button makes it easy to, for example, cut the sound of a cough during live online transmissions. beyerdynamic supplies the Fox with a range of accessories for immediate use.

A pop shield prevents popping noises when talking, a base allows users to position the microphone on a table or lectern and a clamp allows the mounting of the mic to a stand.

Fox works with Macs and PCs and iOS and Android mobile devices using the right optional adaptor.

Price is approximately $220.00 and will be available in April.
