Soundelux U195 Condensor Microphone

The U195 is a cardioid patterned, phantom powered, large diaphram FET microphone. In designing the U195, Soundelux set out to create a microphone able to satisfy a wide range of demands in critical music recording, broadcasting, and post applications. For budget-conscious studios facing a wide range of demands, a U195 serves as the “do-it-all” premium condenser microphone. It delivers superb results on lead vocal tracks as well as in VO/ADR use, providing remarkable fullness and presence with exceptionally low background noise.
Unique to the U195 is the “Fat/Norm” switch. The “Norm” position provides an extended flat response with slightly elevated high end typical of FET condensers, while “Fat” creates a low end boost between 10Hz and 400Hz for the distinctive sound of older tube classic cardioid condensers. The U195 also provides a pad (-10dB) and rumble filter (-10dB at 20 Hz). The combinations of tone switches allows for unmatched versatility in a professional studio mic. The U195’s unique amplifier circuitry produces superior response to dynamic signals without the typical transistor low-level high¬order harmonics (a painfully obvious artifact) commonly found in other fet mics. The U195 also contains a unique to the industry output transformer– where other mfg’s have wondered how small they can make theirs, we asked, “can we make it bigger” and designed a transformer that takes up half the room in the mic body! We did this not just to prove that bigger is better, but to increase the low frequency headroom beyond that of other transformer coupled mics.
