    Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

    Get outstanding vocal and acoustic reproduction with this Gold Sputtered Large Diaphragm Condenser Studio Recording Microphone from Monoprice!

    This professional quality microphone features a 6-micron gold sputtered diaphragm for superior responsiveness. The mic uses a cardioid pickup pattern and reproduces frequencies from 30Hz to 20KHz. It has a 15mV/PA (-36dB) sensitivity, with a maximum SPL of 137dB at 0.5% THD.

    The mic requires 48V phantom power to operate and has a standard XLR connection. A switchable high-pass filter with 6dB/octave attenuation at 150 Hz helps reduce bass boom from the proximity effect, while a second switch enables a -10dB pre-attenuation pad, which reduces the possibility of overloading the mic's internal circuitry.

    The microphone comes with a shock mount, which isolates the microphone from vibrations on the mic stand. The mic measures about 6.2" long x 2.3" diameter. The shock mount measures approximately 5.7" x 4.6" x 2.6".

    This microphone was reviewed by Joseph Lemmer at TapeOp magazine. You can read the review here.

    Studio Quality

    Pros: Warm rich tonal quality for vocals.
    -10db switch for high sound pressure application
    HPF switching

    Cons: No cons found

    I recently purchased this condenser microphone for use in my studio. After seeing the price, I was a bit skeptical but decided to try it anyway based on the Tape Op reviews by Joseph Lemmer. After using this mic on several projects, I was convinced that I made the right decision. I also use a "Blue" studio condenser microphone and the Monoprice mic has a much fuller, warmer tonal quality for vocal use. I hope to also use these microphones as overheads on a drum kit as well as an instrument mic. The switching for "high pressure" situations is a big plus as well as the HPF capability. the chassis is of well built, solid construction and the shock mount provides excellent isolation. this microphone can not be beat for the price and actually exceeds microphones in a much higher price range. Highly Recommended!

    Great Product

    Pros: Quality of sound, incredible price!!

    Cons: When singing too loud, it appears to have built in protection and the microphone "shuts down" for 2-3 seconds. I'm guessing that's a good thing, but not in the middle of a performance. I then got the Pop screen filter and made sure I keep back from the microphone and that seems to stop the issue

    When I told my musician friends I was buying a large diaphragm microphone for $60 on monoprice, they laughed! Well, the laughter did not last long after I sang through it for them for the first time! They all bought one within 2 days of hearing it!! I love it... now... if Monoprice could just make me a better singer, that would be great!

    Best Mic for the Price. Period.

    Pros: - picks up great nuances from acoustic instruments
    - price is unbeatable

    Cons: - shockmount bands come off constantly

    The shockmount bands coming off is only a minor con. Some pliers and ever so slight bending takes care of that matter without a problem. The mic is a -bit- on the hot side which is fine for my purposes but could be a deterrent to anyone who doesn't know how to manipulate EQ or compression to ever so slightly tweak the response.

    Seriously. For the price it's the best microphone you can purchase.

    Good mic but dead after a year of using.

    Pros: Nice microphone, warm, and inexpensive. the response is good.

    Cons: After more than a year of using its now dead.

    I have 3 old condenser microphone (4 including this monoprice large diaphram mic), one of them is the cheap samson mic. I found out that the monoprice unit is good, it has warmness in sound. the only problem is after using it for more than a year, it is totally dead, it may be circuitry problem i tried several option including changing cable etc. just doesnt work. im back with my old microphone.

    Great XLR Mic at this price point.

    Pros: Comes with everything you need. (minus the boom arm)
    Audio quality is pretty good. Highs are a bit... wobbly is the best I can describe it but not insanely noticeable.
    Great Price

    Cons: A bit sensitive. Can get feedback if you touch the body of the mic. I don't touch it much so not a big issue.
    Elastics tend to pop off easy but once again if you don't touch it much not a big problem.

    Been using this mic for over a year now and it is great. Need to tweak my mixer a bit for the sound quality but not to much. Compression is pretty good ont he mic itself so not much needed on the mixer side.
