Sontronics ORPHEUS three-pattern large-diaphragm condenser microphone


The Sontronics ORPHEUS is a must-have for choice for any studio or live application, all thanks to its three polar patterns, its unique -10dB cut and +10dB boost function and striking design making it one of the most sought-after room mics on the market. The Sontronics ORPHEUS boasts an extremely low self-noise with an unmissable presence and defined clarity, especially in the higher frequencies allowing you to capture the subtlest of nuances in whatever you decide to record.

 

The Sontronics ORPHEUS’ body was honed over a long time period as well as its capsule and electronics, all to ensure that the resulting mic could be incredibly flexible for studio-based recording alongside live recording scenarios. The highly sensitive 35mm dual-diaphragm capsule is suspended in its own special mount that is almost floating in the large spherical basket, allows the ORPHEUS to soak up every nuance and detail of the space it's recording in. The zinc alloy cast body of the ORPHEUS gives a very low resonance that helps keep the signal tight and accurate.

 

Since the ORPHEUS’ release, it has become a firm favourite with live sound engineers for drum overheads and has become incredibly popular in the voiceover community, all thanks to the ORPHEUS’ crisp and classy results on spoken word performances. It's three polar patterns also mean the ORPHEUS is widely versatile when recording groups & ensembles, the use in mid-side and other experimental applications and even for foley/sound design work.

 

The Sontronics ORPHEUS is supplied in a luxury, velvet-lined wooden box and comes with a special angled mount adaptor, to give you plenty of flexibility whether you're using it on stage, in a vocal booth or in the studio. And like all Sontronics microphones, the ORPHEUS is covered under a free lifetime warranty.
