Beyerdynamic’s new Fox USB-C microphone range was introduced at the NAMM 2018 show in LA. Combining a microphone, preamp, AD converter and headphone amplifier, the new model is designed for recording both in the studio and on-the-go.
The large-diaphragm condenser microphone is designed to provide high sensitivity, while the cardioid polar pattern maintains a directional pickup pattern to keep background noise like computer fans to a minimum. The elastic suspension on the microphone capsule aims to prevent structure-borne noise, such as footsteps and fret noises.
A button on the back of the microphone regulates the gain and enables use of the Fox for especially loud sources, while a mute button makes it easy to cut unwanted sounds during live online transmissions. Beyerdynamic supplies the Fox with a range of accessories for immediate use. A pop shield prevents disruptive popping noises when talking, a base allows you to position the microphone on a table or lectern, and a clamp lets you mount it to a microphone stand. Fox comes with an orange USB cable and a thread adapter. Mobile devices from iOS and Android are supported as well.
