Audix A231 is a condenser microphone, which is an extension of the technological idea present in previous versions – A131 and A133. It perfectly records speech, vocals, sounds from a concert or performances of a single instrumentalist. It’s quality created for studio needs, but thanks to its compact size, you can take it with you virtually everywhere.
A microphone for demanding customers
The capsule of this model measures 33 mm and uses 25% more membrane surface than similar competitive products. Effect? Wide and natural frequency response. Thanks to the practical cardioid polar pattern , this equipment reduces ambient noise – so if you are still bothered by unwanted sounds in your recording, this is the right model for you. It has a low-noise preamplifier system using the proprietary Driven Shield technology.
Impact and shock resistance
The grill design protects against unwanted effects of impacts while recording. It is made of double-woven steel mesh and equipped with an extremely thin acoustic foam filter. The microphone also has anti-shock protection , which isolates the capsule from any vibrations and mechanical interference.
Not only vocals
With the Audix A231 you can record not only speech or vocals; the maximum SPL of this model is 140 dB, which allows for efficient recording of drums or guitar amplifiers. A self-noise level of 12 dBA and a dynamic range of 128 dB mean that you can also use the new Audix to record orchestra performances, as well as playing string instruments or double bass.
The A131 weighed 280 g, and the Audix A231 – 330. Where does the extra weight come from? A significant contribution to this is made by the gold-plated brass ring, visible at first glance, which distinguishes the model and adds mass to it for better stability .
As already mentioned, the Audix A231 handles not only vocals but also instruments efficiently. It’s compact so you can carry it with you from home to the studio and back. In turn, the directional characteristic means that sound can be recorded virtually anywhere, without compromising quality. For this reason, the microphone has a really wide target audience and will be useful for singers, lecturers, radio presenters, podcasters, musicians, YouTubers and streamers.
