Bothell, WA (October 5, 2020)—While Mackie first launched its EleMent Series of microphones in January this year, the manufacturer is now expanding the line with five new additions—three new mics, a boom and pop screen. Additionally, the company’s MC-100 headphones, originally only available as part of bundles, are being spun out as a stand-alone product. All of the products are aimed at content creation such as podcasting, as well as recording and remote meeting use.

Key to the new offerings are three new microphones—the EM-91CU USB condenser microphone, Carbon USB condenser microphone, and Chromium USB condenser microphone.

Mackie Launches New In-Ear Monitors

The plug-and-play EM-91CU USB condenser microphone ($49) sports a cardioid polar pattern, includes a USB cable and shock mount, and has a sample rate of 16-bit/48 kHz. Meanwhile, the Carbon USB mic ($149) features Mackie’s Onyx mic preamp circuitry and five selectable polar patterns—stereo, cardioid, bi-directional, super cardioid and omni. It, too, offers a sample rate of 16-bit/48 kHz and comes with a mic stand and USB-C cable.

As the line’s flagship, the Chromium USB condenser microphone ($199) features a built-in 2-channel mixer with instrument and stereo 1/8” inputs, as well as four polar patterns—stereo, cardioid, bi-directional and omni. Equipped with a built-in mixer stand, USB-C cable and a sample rate of 16-bit/48 kHz, the Chromium is intended for recording music, podcasts, live streams and online content creation.

Accessorizing the new microphones, the DB-100 Desktop Microphone Boom Arm ($79) and PF-100 Pop Screen for EleMent Series mics ($14) are also now available. The MC-100 professional closed-back headphones are $29.99.
