The Deity Microphones S-Mic 2 Location Kit is a moisture-resistant shotgun microphone with a pistol grip shockmount and a faux fur windjammer. It allows boom operators and sound recordists to achieve broadcast-quality sound in a variety of outdoor shooting scenarios such as indie films, news gathering, documentaries, and weddings. Professional-level features such as low-noise circuitry and anti-RF interference construction minimize the need for noise reduction after recording.

Thanks to the high sensitivity of the S-Mic 2, robust output levels are possible without having to max out your preamp's gain control. Tonally, the S-Mic 2 offers a smooth, warm sonic signature with low off-axis coloration and natural attenuation of bass frequencies below 50 Hz.

You'll find no switches, buttons, or dials on the S-Mic 2, so you always depend on it to deliver consistent sound, reliability, and ease of use. The lightweight solid brass housing ensures toughness gig after gig, and its black speckle paint provides low reflectivity and added durability.

Ideal for Outdoor Use
The construction of the mic body is computer machined from solid brass inside and out, and no plastic is used anywhere in the construction to hold it together or mount the PCB. The S-Mic 2 uses a high-end capsule, computer-designed circuitry, and a gold-coated PCB (printed circuit board).

The PCB is also sprayed and coated with a clear epoxy, which allows the microphone to perform without issues even in the most humid environments. This coating also gives the microphone a water-resistance level that allows it to work in the rain without being damaged. The body of the microphone has been sprayed with a black speckle paint to give it an ultra-durable finish, so it looks professional in front of clients for years of ownership while being less reflective on set.
Broadcast-Quality Sound
The S-Mic 2 was engineered to give you broadcast-quality sound on a reasonable budget. Its 9.8" long body and supercardioid polar enhanced yield focused directivity in front of the mic and 18 dB of off-axis rejection. It has a low noise floor of 12 dBA and an anti-RF interference build, allowing it maintain less background noise even with significant gain boosts.
Phantom Powered
Featuring a balanced 3-pin XLR output and support for 24V or 48V phantom powering, the S-Mic 2 is ready for use with a variety of devices such as multitrack field recorders, handheld audio recorders, camera-mount mixer adapters, and XLR-equipped cinema cameras.
Ideal for Boompole Mounting
The S-Mic 2 includes a mic clip with a 3/8" thread for easy placement on a boompole and a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners.

For maximum reduction of noise from wind, vibration, and mic handling, the S-Mic 2 Location Kit includes the Rycote InVision Softie Lyre pistol grip shockmount and a faux fur windjammer.
Waterproof Hardshell Case
To better protect your microphone, the S-Mic 2 comes with a waterproof hardshell case. The case features a rubber O-ring in the lid that seals the case tight and an auto air-pressure balanced feature, ensuring your microphone is safe and ready to go.

Deity Microphones S-MIC 2 Reviews

Mic great but kit was missing the kit aspects

The  Pistol Grip Shockmount and Windjammer were not included. Still waiting to hear back from the manufacturer.

I bought this Microphone because of all the praise it got by many people online who were reviewing it. Sadly When I got to use it, it wasn't even close to the 416 it is supposed to emulate. Well, I know that there is a huge price difference and I respect that, but then just sell it as another shotgun microphone and not as a rival to the 416. I wouldn't recommend it and it is better to save for a Rode NTG3, or find one used for the same price!

Great mic with an exceptional price point

Ive had this on two 12-hour shoots now. We wanted something in our kit for those situations that dont call for anything other than a boom pole on a c-stand. The S-Mic 2 pays for itself much quicker vs the 416 and as far as Im concerned the quality and performance are the same. At this price point, there is no reason for an owner/operator not to have this in the kit.

Good for the price

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.

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.

Gorgeous!

can you use this with your cell phone?
Asked by: Housny
No unless you have a audio interface/mixer connected to the phone that has a battery to provide the microphone with Phantom power (48v) otherwise this microphone will not work straight into a phone. The link bellow has a Saramonic audio mixer that will allow you to connect this microphone into your phone. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1301929-REG/saramonic_smartrigp_2_channel_mic_instrument_interface.html
