Possibly the nicest microphone you own once you own it, the e22s delivers smooth detail that is truly unique on any source! The Josephson e22S side-address cardioid was designed to meet the needs of noted recording engineer Steve Albini. The physical profile allows unobtrusive placement, even with tight percussion layouts. Unique among studio condenser microphones, the e22S capsule geometry is optimized for spot miking performance. The circuit uses a cascode discrete FET front end, combined with a custom Lundahl output transformer. The electronics were designed to interface easily with either transformer or direct coupled mic preamps. The e22S has low self-noise, so it delivers low level detail, and handles high sound pressure levels for minimal distortion on extremely loud passages. The microphone housing is very rugged, with a precision machined, satin black chrome finish. Specifications Directional Pattern: Cardioid Frequency Response: 20-20,000 Hz +/- 2dB from curve Sensitivity: 3.0 mV/Pa Rated Impedence: 200 ohms Equivalent Noise Level: 15dB SPL A-weighted Maximum SPL: 144dB Weight: 180g Dimensions: 21mm diameter, 190mm long, 30mm head
Awesome thanks. I'll check out the review. Looking at them as possible alternative to e22s but I doubt they'll sound alike
