Anaheim, CA (January 17, 2020) — Earthworks Audio has used the NAMM Show as a launch pad for its new SR3314 and the SR5314 wireless vocal microphone capsules.
Aiming to achieve the clarity of a studio condenser on stage, the new capsules’ sound is created by coupling the studio-quality small diaphragm cardioid condenser capsule with a Class A amplifier circuit using Earthworks proprietary technologies.
According to Earthworks Audio, this results in an extended flat frequency response and clean impulse response. The capsules feature a tight cardioid polar pattern and extreme attenuation of sound sources located beyond 90 degrees, with maximum rejection at 180 degrees.
“Our vocal microphones deliver the same quality of sound even when the singer moves off-center,” said Gareth Krausser, COO for Earthworks. “There’s no proximity effect. They eliminate feedback and their off-axis rejection is outstanding.”
The SR3314 is designed to work with any handheld wireless transmitter that utilizes a standard 3-ring concentric connector. This includes wireless microphone models made by Shure, Lectrosonics, Sony, Line 6, Audio-Technica and others with a compatible 3-ring connector. Usable mics include Sennheiser’s Digital 9000 Series, Digital 6000 Series, 2000 Series, Evolution G4 500 Series, Evolution G4 300 Series and Evolution G4 100 Series.
Both capsules have a MAP of $699 and will be available in February.
