512 AUDIO Limelight Dynamic Vocal XLR Microphone
Brought about by Warm Audio's team of expert engineers specifically for podcasters, live streamers, and broadcasters, the 512 AUDIO Limelight dynamic vocal XLR microphone offers build quality, tone, and features that extend beyond its price class. Like all of Warm Audio's pro audio gear, the Limelight mic is designed to produce a great sound without gratuitous tweaking after the recording.
It utilizes a large-diaphragm dynamic capsule and special circuity, tuned for optimal clarity and richness of speech. Even more directional than cardioid mics, the Limelight opts for a hypercardioid polar pattern to capture your voice with less background noise. If traffic-induced rumble or excessive bass from proximity effect need to be lessened, simply switch on the internal high-pass filter. As a passive dynamic mic, it needs no phantom power; just connect its XLR 3-pin output to a mic preamp with an XLR mic cable (available separately) and crank up the gain.
This microphone is part of the B&H Virtual Mic Locker, an online tool to help our valued customers determine the sonic differences between popular microphones for podcasting and voice over work. Each microphone was recorded using a Grace Design M103 preamp into a Presonus Quantum 2626 interface.
Clarity of Speech
Limelight is precision-tuned to focus on the frequencies that capture the richness of voice and speech, so your audience can enjoy your talk-focused content with the clarity you'd expect from a world-class broadcast facility.
Built on Legacy
Designed by an expert team of engineers and built on the vintage-inspired legacy of Warm Audio, Limelight combines a large-diaphragm dynamic capsule with special circuitry to produce smooth, clear broadcast audio with a 50 Hz to 15 kHz frequency response that's sculpted for close-range vocal duty.
More Voice and Less Noise
With a hyper-focused pickup pattern that's nearly 20% narrower than a standard cardioid microphone, Limelight captures your voice while rejecting unwanted room noise around you.
No Pops
A built-in pop shield blocks intrusive plosives from consonants like p, b, and f, for an uncompromised sound and less audio cleanup in post.
Goodbye Rumble
The switchable 100 Hz low-frequency filter prevents unwanted noise and low-end rumble, for more control over your sound.
Easy Setup
Included with Limelight is a 360° swivel mount, which helps you achieve perfect placement on a mic stand or boom arm.
512 AUDIO 512-BBA Microphone Boom Arm

Equipped with a silent high-tension spring hidden from view and the ability to rotate 360°, the 512-BBA Microphone Boom Arm from 512 AUDIO offers sleek, quiet, and easy mic positioning for podcasters, content creators, novice broadcasters, and radio show hosts. Its two arms allow up to 31.5" of horizontal reach, plenty to put the mic right where you need it. The 512-BBA's steel construction provides stability while supporting a studio or broadcast mic weighing up to 3 lb (including a clip/mount).

Since the 512-BBA is compatible with 5/8"-27 and 3/8"-16 threads, it works with most mic clips and shockmounts. It attaches to a desk or table via an extrawide C-clamp that utilizes an antiscratch pad to prevent damaging the finish of your worksurface. For nonpermanent setups, the 512-BBA can be fully collapsed to ensure compact storage between sessions.

Bring Your Sound Closer
With professional looks and a reliable high-tension spring hinge, 512-BBA easily stays in place without any additional tightening or adjustments. Bring your mic closer to your voice and away from distracting vibrations caused by typing, desk movement, or noisy fans.
Sturdy Microphone Support
The 512-BBA features a durable yet lightweight steel construction that easily holds most professional recording and broadcast microphones weighing up to 3 lb.
Perfect Mic Placement
Whether your perfect placement is over your monitor or stretched across the table, 512-BBA's 360° of arm rotation and smooth, dual-axis swivel let you enjoy a full range of motion to effortlessly find the optimal mic placement.
Silent Adjustments
512-BBA is outfitted with a silent spring design, so you can make all the adjustments you want without making a sound.
Extrawide Desk Mount
The sturdy metal C-clamp desk mount attaches to any surface up to 2" thick and includes an antiscratch pad to protect your desk.
Simple Cable Management
Keep your setup clean and clutter-free with the included touch fastener wraps for quick and simple cable management.
Universal Compatibility
Compatible with virtually any microphone, 512-BBA accommodates 3/8"-16 and 5/8"-27 threaded shockmounts or mic clips to make mounting a snap.
Fully Collapsible
The boom arm tucks away in an instant for compact and easy storage whenever you're off the air.
