Earthworks IM6 overview

  • 1Description

The silver IM Series IM6S High Definition 6" Gooseneck Microphone by Earthworks is for capturing audio and can be used in fixed sound installations for audio applications such as teleconferencing, surveillance, boardrooms, government facilities, lecture halls, ambient room miking, and more. The IM series can be custom mounted in a ceiling, wall or table and provides great sound quality, flexibility and ease of installation.

The IM6S features a cardioid polar pattern and has a frequency response of 30 Hz to 30 kHz. The microphone is powered by 48V phantom power. It is built with a small head and flexible mini-gooseneck that allow it to be precisely positioned after installation. This mic features a uniform frequency response at 0, 45 and 90°. This polar response allows the use of fewer microphones, while obtaining higher intelligibility and more gain before feedback. In addition you also have more sound level before feedback, no spotlighting or highlighting, and more rejection of sounds from the rear of the microphone. The IM series provides a low profile, pristine sounding microphone solution for permanent installations.

    Earthworks IM6 reviews

    IM Series IM6S High Definition 6" Gooseneck Microphone (Silver) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looks, smooth and warm coverage I installed this on a lectern at a historic church, where we needed just enough height to get over large books. When an average person is speaking, they are about 14-18 inches away from the capsule, so I left the windscreen off. The coverage pattern is a very even cardioid with good rear rejection. Tone is surprisingly warm for this distance; I actually had notch back some mid-low EQ due to room reverb. The mic does pick up some vibrations in the wooden lectern, but not as much as some goosenecks and boundary mics I've worked with previously. The entire neck is flexible, mounting was easy, and the silver finish matches the decorations in the church. You can't quite see it in the manufacturer's photos, but the finish has just a little warmth and might more accurately be called "brushed nickel". Since I was replacing a previous condenser at the same location, the wiring worked right away. For reference, the upstream mixer is a 15-year-old digital (Mackie DX-8) with pre-amps and phantom source built in. My only minor complaint is that these are special order items (maybe even built to order), and there were factory delays on my shipment. Make sure you plan ahead as much as possible.
