Product Description

Ideal for lapel or binaural recording, the X-X omnidirectional lapel condenser microphone is available in a full range of terminations from its 2m lead.  Longer leads available on request, please inquire for pricing.  Shorter leads may be specified in order comments.

The stereo versions of the X-X omnidirectional lapel condenser microphone are supplied with matched capsules; mono versions may be ordered as matched pairs.  Stereo versions may be supplied with the leads joined together; please specify the length of the cable split at the capsule end.

For 2017, the X-X version 2 offers two new capsule options:  the low-noise capsule offers 19dBA self-noise performance; the low-sensitivity capsule (available soon) yields -42dBV/Pa and a maximum level of 142dBSPL (specifications are tentative).  The capsules are distinguished with the metal finish on the capsule flange; gold for low-noise, chrome for standard, black (or white) for low-sensitivity.

The X-X is available in black or white.

See also the X-X optional accessories for instrument mounting solutions, including violin, viola/mandolin, table, magnet, and universal mounts.

X-X microphone 3.5mm miniplug wiring configuration
  • PC microphone (Soundblaster® compatible): tip = signal; ring = power (+3-10V); sleeve = ground.
  • Mono plug-in power (“PIP”): tip & ring = signal + power (+3-10V across 3-10KΩ); sleeve = ground.
  • Sennheiser® compatible: tip = signal + power (+3-10V across 3-10KΩ); ring & sleeve = ground.
  • Stereo PIP miniplug:  tip =  left signal + power (black or white heatshrink); ring = right signal + power (red heatshrink); sleeve = ground.
