I have a pair of Philips LBB9050 cardiods which I never use and was thinking of selling. While searching tinternet for some info on them I discovered that they are dual capsule mics and, as I already knew that these mics were badged Philips, but actually made by AKG at around the same period (1960s ?), I wondered whether they are similar.
Like do they have the same capsules and/or crossovers ? Of course most folk are familiar with the D202 - I first saw them in the BBC in the 1960s. But I think the LBB9050 is much less common. The radiomuseum has a nice picture here: Mikrofon LBB-9050/05 Microphone Philips - Österreich
Particularly would like to hear from anyone who has experience of both.
I don't know the answer to your question, but from that photo, they look more similar to the AKG D200 than to the D202.
That's an interesting observation..Was the the D200 later than the D202 ? Having googled I have to agree. I just thought I mention that within a few minutes of posting the original question my post was the second hit on a Google search for LBB9050 ! The power of Gearslutz !!
