The black Audix M1255B Miniature Condenser Microphone measures 2.1″ (54mm) in length, features a cardioid polar pattern, and contains an integrated preamplifier. It offers a sensitive capsule and a wide frequency response suitable for capturing both vocals and instruments. Additionally, a high output enables long cable runs for use with group vocal capturing, stage performances, and similar scenarios. There is an included detachable 25-foot cable with mini XLR-female and standard XLR-male connections. The cardioid polar pattern provides adequate off-axis signal and feedback rejection while providing a generous pickup area at the front of the capsule. The microphone can be used in a wide variety of applications, including choir capturing, overhead cymbals, speech, ambient room capturing, and percussion. A microphone stand adapter, hanging clip, and external foam windscreen are also included.
