Deity Microphones S-MIC 2 overview

  • 1Description

The S-Mic 2 Shotgun Microphone and Location Kit from Deity Microphones includes the S-Mic 2 supercardioid shotgun microphone with foam windscreen, a mic stand clip with a threaded 3/8" mount, a Rycote pistol grip shockmount, a waterproof hard case with custom-cut foam inserts, and a faux fur windjammer. This kit can be used to capture audio in outdoor/indoor environments and is suitable for video or interview applications.

The S-Mic 2 supercardioid shotgun microphone features a low-noise floor and an all-brass body with a gold-coated PCB (printed circuit board). The PCB is sprayed and coated with a clear epoxy to perform without issues even in the most humid environments. This coating gives the microphone a water resistance level that allows it to work in the rain without being damaged. The microphone is powered with 24 or 48V phantom power and is equipped with a 3-pin XLR output connector.

    Deity Microphones S-MIC 2 reviews

    S-Mic 2 Shotgun Microphone and Location Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! So before you buy any gear you need to do your research. And the Senneheiser 416 is a hard mic to beat. It's highly directional and has a great pick-up range. However it is also extremely expensive. And the technology of the 416 hasn't changed in thirty years. The S-Mic 2 sounds just as good if not even a little bit better. And it is light years ahead of other, less expensive alternatives. I'd highly recommend this mic for anyone that does a lot of on-location shooting. It is the perfect choice for anyone looking to shoot a lot of interviews.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mic Of All Trades I won this microphone in a contest but I love B&H. I use the S-Mic 2 with my Zoom F4n. Its a simple and easy setup. I like that it works off 48v. I know some people like the option for a AA battery but I have always had those explode and get all crusty on the inside of the microphone. I like the simple plug and play aspect of the S-Mic 2. I should also mention that it actually sounds really good, like I was really shocked at how well it sounded.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make this your first shotgun mic! I recently picked up a the new Deity S-Mic 2, and I've got to say I am impressed. There simply isn't another microphone out there that can compete at this quality and price point! I'm a bit of an everyman, I started working in production 12 years ago in camera and lighting, but in the past few years I've gotten much more serious about sound. I've mixed two extremely low budget features and several short films borrowing mics or renting as I never could justify the upfront purchase of a $1000+ mic, and the RODE NTG-1 I've owned for a decade as an on camera mic got some things done, but it doesn't really cut it on a boom pole. That NTG-1 finally broke, and now I've absolutely been without a personal mic for some time, I had to use a Rode Videomic Pro on a gig once! Yeesh! Introduce the Deity S-Mic 2! This thing is honestly a beast. I spend more time than most folks researching gear online before I pick anything up, and so of course I've spent far too many hours reading about buying the Sennheiser 416 vs the Rode NTG-3. It's been frustrating determining which one to buy when I finally decide to pull the trigger on a new mic, to save $300 and get the Rode, or save for the 416 as I don't buy used gear... I missed the B&H sale in 2016 on 416s for $800 and I've been kicking myself ever since. I've also watched the reviews of the Aputure Deity mic from 2017 and been impressed with the durability, but was concerned about the self noise... It was already somewhat comparable to a 416, but I wasn't sure. Over the last few months I've been watching all of the trade show hype about the upcoming separate Deity brand, and the S-Mic 2... how they've fixed the noise issue, and how it's going to be the same price as the original. I couldn't wait any longer on not having a mic, and I still can't afford a 416 today, so I was very excited about the S-Mic 2. Now that I've got one I'm extremely happy. For my purposes; personal projects, low or no budget films and competitions, quick and dirty web videos, and tons of other content I know I'm SET. This mic is built like a tank, and is supposedly good to go in the most humid of conditions... Like the rain! I'm not too keen on testing that out, but I am glad to know that should I have no other option, the mic will perform. It also sounds wonderful! It's rich and can pick up everything I need it to, and rejects what I don't need. It also has a slightly wider pattern than a 416, meaning that if I need to use it on someone who moves around a lot, or give it to an inexperienced boom op I don't have to worry too much. I've heard a few comparisons online of this new S-Mic 2 and the 416... I can't for the life of me tell a significant difference, at least not $600 difference. I think that for what we're getting at $429: the mic, foam, hard case, mic clip, dead cat, and Rycote pistol grip... it can't be beat! So here's my plan... Now that I've got a mic that can perform, I'm going to put it to work. I'm going to bring it out and unless a client specifically requests a certain mic, I see no reason to tell anyone what it isn't. The way I see it, I can make this mic pay for itself three, or four times over, then buy a 416 and beyond... Then, for when those rainy or extra humid days come, I can pull out this beast and keep working! It will also just be a fantastic secondary mic, or backup mic and more! This mic is available on Gotham Sound, BH, and Trew Audio. It's $359 for the basic kit (mic, foam, basic clip, hard case) and $429 for the "location kit" (additional deadcat and Rycote Invision pistol grip shock mount). I might repurpose the hard case and toss the mic in a bag. So, based off of my experience I can say that this mic will be a fantastic first time microphone for those who are just getting into sound mixing or indi-filmmaking, as well as wonderful additional tool for seasoned Pros who want something they can throw around like a hammer.
