With LEWITT’s tenth anniversary in 2020 coming up, the Austrian pro audio manufacturer is gearing up to celebrate with the launch of a new flagship microphone.
Intended to become the company’s boldest launch to date, the as-yet unnamed microphone is being developed under the working title ‘Project Pinnacle’.
All LEWITT microphones are developed with input from experienced recording engineers, who not only field-test new products before their launch but actually help to shape their tonal characteristics. For the launch of its new flagship, LEWITT has also created a website-based survey that allows audio enthusiasts at every level to get involved in the creation of the new microphone. In addition, participants will be entered into a draw to win one of the flagship microphones as an anniversary gift from LEWITT to its end-users.
Designed to take five minutes to complete, the survey asks visitors to compare and evaluate a number of audio samples, all of which will contribute to the new flagship’s characteristics and features. The LEWITT sound survey ends on August 30, 2019.
“From January onwards, 2020 will be a year of celebration for LEWITT, and we’re planning to start as we mean to go on with our most significant product launch yet,” commented Roman Perschon, founder and CEO of LEWITT. “Most importantly, we want everyone who cares about audio to be part of our celebrations. LEWITT was founded on the principle of making the highest quality microphones accessible to everyone – now we want to democratise the design process as well. I’m very excited to hear the results and I can’t wait to reveal our new flagship.”

The new microphone will be unveiled at The Namm Show 2020, as will the winner of the prize draw.
