Milford, NH (August 17, 2011)--Earthworks has begun shipping its SR40V high-definition vocal microphone.
Featuring a 9mm back electret condenser-type transducer with a diaphragm measuring 5 microns, the SR40V also offers a hyper-cardioid polar pattern, a frequency range spanning from 30 Hz-40 kHz, a self-noise rating of 22 dB SPL (A weighted), a sensitivity rating of 10 mV/Pa (-40 dBV/Pa), and a Peak Acoustic Output rating of 145 dB SPL.
Bill Norton, Earthworks' COO, commented on the response to the SR40V mic: "We began to ship the SR40V at a velocity that already far exceeds our expectations," he states. "For quite some time now, music and audio professionals have asked us for a vocal microphone with the characteristics seen in the SR40V. We teamed up with various industry professionals and FOH engineers during the design phase, utilizing their valuable feedback to create the ultimate vocal condenser microphone. The SR40V is the result of that collaboration."
