Beyerdynamic has a leading role in headphones, microphones, and conference systems markets. Their new FOX USB microphone can capture any music in any place, at any time. The beyerdynamic FOX guarantees excellent sound quality, be it for vocals or speech, for a performance with an acoustic guitar, a podcast, gaming, or Let’s Play videos on YouTube.
The beyerdynamic FOX features a high-quality microphone capsule, as found in professional studio microphones around the world. This large-membrane condenser microphone provides high sensitivity compared to common dynamic microphones. This means even quiet sounds and the finest nuances can be captured perfectly.
The cardioid polar pattern shield protects against rear-incident noise, providing ideal protection against background noise. The elastic suspension on the microphone capsule prevents structure-borne noise – eliminating footsteps and fret noises.
One of the great strengths of the beyerdynamic FOX is its simplicity. Microphone recordings normally require a preamplifier and an AD converter as well as a microphone. If you then want to listen to the recording, you’ll need a DA converter and headphone amplifier or loudspeakers.
Not so with FOX: A USB cable, a computer and a pair of headphones like the DT 770 are all you need to make first-class productions quickly and easily. The engineers at beyerdynamic have managed to fit all the components you need for professional recording into the compact FOX.
Integrated Cirrus Logic converters offer up to 24 bit at a sampling frequency of 96 kHz – that means sophisticated studio quality. But set-up is still remarkably simple: a single USB cable links the microphone to a computer, the headphones plug directly into the microphone.
The beyerdynamic FOX will be available in April 2018 in specialist stores and in the beyerdynamic online shop. The recommended retail price is EUR 179.
