Omnidirectional Capsule for 600700 Microphone
This Omnidirectional condenser capsule is designed to fit the Monoprice Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (PID 600700). The Omnidirectional capsule tends to have better low-frequency response and a smoother response curve across all frequencies than a Cardioid capsule.
Although in theory an omnidirectional polar pattern will pickup sounds equally well from all directions, the presence of the microphone body will tend to reduce a microphone's ability to pickup sounds from the rear as the sound wavelength approaches the diameter of the microphone body. Given that the diameter of the 600700 mic is about 7/8" (22mm), there will be a slightly reduced rear pickup at around 15-16 KHz.
An Omnidirectional polar pattern is well suited for use as an ambient room mic, as a vocal mic for multiple singers (e.g., a choir), and in situations where you want to pickup all the reflected sounds inside an small space.
This item is sold as one individual capsule.
PROS: Really nice pick up range, great for recording conversation without the mic in your face.
CONS: Really rough threads make it hard to install, easy to cross-thread.
PROS: Good sound.
CONS: Difficult to install.
I think these, along with the 600700 microphones, are the perfect buy for people making "prosumer"-level recordings at home. Sometimes you just need quantity in your mic cabinet, e.g. when recording drums or piano or other multi-source acoustic instruments. In those cases, your one great vocal mic or electric guitar mic isn't going to cut it: you really need several solid mics for the task, even if they're unspectacular. These mics and capsules are a great way to be equipped for any task, and at an incredibly low price.
PROS: Low price, good build quality, decent tone, and added versatility for the 600700 mics.
CONS: At this price, none really.
PROS: - Works as advertised
CONS: - None
Cut foam it comes in goes nicely in Monoprice hard shell case since I want to protect these small capsules. You can't beat the quality. I spent hundreds more on mikes that don't send as good as this!!
PROS: Interchangeable with small-diaphram condenser mic. Clean audio near or far.
CONS: Just worry about protecting the capsule.
