Westlake Village, CA (August 4, 2010)–Blue Microphones’ new flagship performance condenser microphone, the en•CORE 300, is now available.
The en•CORE 300 is the latest in the en•CORE series of performance microphones introduced last fall, which includes the en•CORE 100 dynamic mic, en•CORE 200 active dynamic mic, and the en•CORE 100i dynamic mic for capturing instrumental sounds. The en•CORE 300 contains the latest proprietary Blue condenser capsule technology with an open architecture design and reinforced build.
The en•CORE 300 is built upon Blue’s custom-tuned condenser capsule technology, mounted on a rubber suspension system and coupled with a phantom powered circuit specifically tuned to match the capsule.
“The en•CORE 300 is the next best thing to bringing our top studio mics on stage,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. “When the recording session ends, singers can now enjoy the same Blue sound they get in the studio, gig after gig.”
According to the company, the unique look of the en•CORE 300 serves more than just aesthetics; en•CORE’s open architecture design aims to maximize air volume in the capsule chamber, reportedly resulting in uninterrupted sound regardless of how the microphone is gripped. By allowing unceasing open air surrounding the top and bottom of the capsule, Blue states it reduces in-chamber resonances, “producing a more natural, continuous sound.” LED backlighting of the Blue logo indicates active phantom power in the preamp circuit.
The en•CORE 300 features a reinforced chassis that doubles as a protective frame for the capsule, along with a heavy-gauge zinc barrel grip to protect microphone components and reduce resonance. The electro-plated parts and hardened paint finishes allow for maximum scratch resistance.
