Wilsonville, OR (May 5, 2021)—Audix has shipped its new A127 Omnidirectional Metal Film Condenser Microphone, intended for use in professional studio recording, broadcast, film and sound design.
Under development at Audix’s Wilsonville, OR headquarters for a number of years, the new A127 is designed around a reference-grade capsule (Type 1 IEC 61094-4 compliant) with a precision-tensioned, ultrathin, 3-micron metal film diaphragm that is a half-inch in size.
According to Audix’s designers, the half-inch size is typically thought to be the “sweet spot” for acoustic sound capture—a factor that has led to that size becoming a standard for acoustic measurement. With its omnidirectional polar pattern, the A127 can be used as a room mic or incorporated into a variety of stereo miking techniques.
The mic is spec’d with a frequency response of 10 Hz – 20 kHz, a dynamic range of 133 dB and a self-noise of 7 dBA. A series of driven shields protects the microphone from external interference and capacitive coupling. The A127’s circuitry and mechanical components, including the gold-plated shield and precision-machined, corrosion-resistant housing, are designed and precision-machined by Audix in its US facility.
The A127 is currently available with an MSRP of $1999.00 US.
