Revolutionary Microphone Engineering

Audeze has developed the world's first planar magnetic microphone. Using our revolutionary planar magnetic technology, our new microphones have an incredibly wide frequency response and huge dynamic range. Using our patented Fluxor magnetic technology and Fazor wave guide technology, these are the first microphones that are capable to capturing enormous dynamic range without distortion.

Think you have a large diaphragm condenser microphone? Not so much anymore! At 100mm diameter Audeze’s new mics give the phrase “large diaphragm” a whole new meaning. Instruments like snare drum, slap bass, triangle, acoustic guitar really come alive with our microphones.

Tetrahedral microphone

Your brain is smarter than you think it is: If the audio does not correlate to the video images, your brain knows this, and your visuals never make that final step towards successful virtual reality. When you see someone talking 20 feet away and 30 degrees to the left in a certain acoustical environment, your brain instinctively knows what it should sound like. It knows if the audio was really recorded in a studio, and the electronic reverb does not match the original acoustical space. So your user never “suspends disbelief.” And you never deliver the complete alternate realm experience. Our VR Tetrahedral mic records all the audio around you and up to about 70 feet away - it also lets you manipulate the audio objects in that space after the fact - you can move objects left/right/up/down/front / back during mixdown. Because it supports the Ambisonics B format, you can easily generate alternate down-mixes to 7.1, 5.1, stereo, etc. This microphone is the only solution like this available today. It’s not just the answer for VR, it also works great for recording of live music.

Finally a complete production/reproduction solution. Now you can achieve more accurate monitoring using Audeze microphones and headphones; the same technology used for recording and monitoring creates a more accurate mix.

Available in:
Mono $995, Stereo $1995, and Tetrahedral $3995 versions.
EQ software plug-in included free of charge, and they work with Pro Tools, Logic, etc.

Features

Fast acceleration with low distortion: The lightweight planar magnetic diaphragm responds extremely fast, reducing distortion and gives better definition of performers location(s) with a strong sense of real space for VR mixes.

Long range: Our mics can, remarkably, overcome another typical microphone drawback and pick up sounds from several meters away because of their remarkably high sensitivity. The tetrahedral model allows any VR recording mix to be that much more real. If you’re working with sound for games, Oculus, Galaxy Gear etc., this is the only mic to use. It can do Ambisonics’ B-format audio; great for down-mixing to stereo.

Durability: Planar magnetic transducers have few moving parts and maintain their performance without degradation or mechanical wear. Dynamic transducers, on the other hand, continuously degrade in performance over time because of a multitude of moving parts and typically glued joints.

No need for phantom power: Unlike condenser microphones, PMT microphones don’t require phantom power, nor are they damaged if phantom power is accidently applied.

Scalable impedance: The circuits in PMT diaphragms present an almost purely resistive load that delivers flat and easy-to-scale impedance over the entire frequency range. The output impedance of PMT microphones is an easy match for most mic preamps.
