The Senal ENG-18RL Broadcast Omni Dynamic Mic (Long) with Rode i-XLR Mic Preamp Kit from B&H includes a Senal ENG-18RL broadcast interview mic, a Rode i-XLR digital XLR adapter for Apple iOS devices, a premium microphone cable, an Auray WMC-100 wide mouth microphone case, and an Auray square microphone flag. In addition, other accessories include a foam windscreen, a microphone clip with 5/8" thread and 3/8" reducer bushing, and a zippered carrying pouch.
The mic is built with natural rubber and special shock-absorbing properties that are bonded to carbon-steel rings that help to isolate the sealed inner shell from the outer shell. This protects the microphone capsule from impacts and inclement weather, and dissipates kinetic energy to reduce handling noise and resonance due to rustling and knocking. A mesh grill, acoustic foam, acoustic fabric, and another layer of acoustic foam work to diffuse excessive sound pressure from wind and breath. It provides multi-stage wind protection to minimize wind noise and vocal plosives.
Furthermore, the Rode i-XLR is a broadcast quality XLR to Lightning interface for iOS devices. It allows reporters, correspondents, and audio professionals to capture interviews and dialogue on a smartphone or tablet. It offers +20 dB of clean gain and delivers a professional sound that you can take anywhere. Finally, the Senal ENG-18RL Broadcast Omni Dynamic Mic (Long) with Rode i-XLR Mic Preamp Kit from B&H offers you everything you need to capture audio quickly for your interviews and broadcast applications.
The Senal ENG-18RL is a broadcast-quality omnidirectional dynamic microphone. The dynamic capsule picks up sound in a 360° pattern and does not require a battery or phantom power, making it a reliable choice for critical field applications. The microphone's exceptionally low handling noise and resistance to wind noise and vocal plosives make it perfect for professional ENG applications like live reporting, interviews, and press conferences.
At multiple areas inside the microphone, natural rubber with special shock-absorbing properties is bonded to carbon steel rings to isolate the sealed inner shell from the outer shell. This system protects the microphone capsule from impacts and inclement weather, and dissipates kinetic energy, dramatically reducing handling noise and resonance due to rustling and knocking.
The microphone also incorporates multistage wind protection to minimize wind noise and vocal plosives. A mesh grille, acoustic foam, acoustic fabric, and another layer of acoustic foam work to diffuse excess sound pressure from wind and breath. A fixed rigid carbon-steel ring with a unique bullet-shaped design disperses breath to minimize vocal plosives.
The EQ curve is tailored for broadcast use, with a gradual low-frequency roll-off to keep out unwanted rumble, a pronounced midrange to ensure speech intelligibility, and a high-frequency roll-off to eliminate hiss and sibilance distortion. Whether broadcasting on television, AM/FM radio, or over the internet, the ENG-18RL is designed to ensure that dialogue cuts through the mix, and can be broadcast live without EQ adjustment.
The ENG-18RL features a durable aluminum-alloy shaft designed for EMI rejection and reduced internal resonance, with a matte black finish for a professional appearance and minimum light reflection. The mic is also long enough to accommodate a mic flag.
The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (6') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.
Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. The 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
The WMC-100 Wide Mouth Case from Auray is designed to hold and protect your microphone and accessories such as cables, mic clips, shock mount, small audio recorder, memory cards, and more. This wide mouth case features a single compartment with a fabric-hinged lid that closes with a wrap-around zipper on three sides.
With a length of 11.5", the WMC-100 case can accommodate a long-handled interview microphone while remaining roomy enough for a mic flag, too. Smaller items can be secured in an interior storage pouch under the top lid with a touch-fastening tab closure.
For added shock and impact protection, there's also an inner layer of foam padding. The interior is lined with faux fur to prevent scratches. To help guard against impact, dust and moisture, the exterior of the case is made of 600D ballistic nylon.
To reinforce and maintain the case's shape, the exterior top and bottom circumferences feature a thin, black, plastic piping. Also on the outside of the case is a wrist-strap handle for hands free carrying.
This black, 2.25" Auray Square Microphone Flag fits any size handheld ENG microphone. The flag includes two foam inserts that accomodate various handle sizes. The square area is black and provides sufficient space for a station ID logo.
