Enhance your music productions with this Sony C-80 Cardioid Condenser Microphone Kit from B&H, featuring an Auray RF-CM-S reflection filter, PFMU-12 pop filter, Sony MDR-7506 headphones, XLR cable, mic stand, and headphones holder. Capture powerful vocals and rich-sounding acoustic instruments with a pronounced midrange.
The C-80 from Sony is a condenser microphone designed to deliver professional-quality vocal recordings with a powerful and rich midrange along with a hint of added presence to cut through the mix. The mic’s dual-capsule design helps to reduce proximity effect and provide a consistent-sounding response, even if the vocalist moves slightly closer or further away from the mic during a take.
Great care has been taken to ensure that the mic provides sonic character and little else. The two-part metallic construction is based on the highly regarded C-800G and C-100 models and prevents acoustic vibrations, helping to keep inherent noise and unwanted sonic artifacts out of your recordings.
The large-diaphragm condenser element yields a true frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with a dynamic range of more than 125.5 dB. The C-80 plays quite nicely, even with loud singers, as the capsule offers a -10 dB pad and can handle SPLs up to 138 dB. A high-pass filter is also on board to help reduce low-end rumbles and other unwanted low-end frequencies, while a suspension shockmount is included to isolate the mic from vibrations and handling noise. A carrying case is also supplied for storage and transport.
Presented here with a cable length of 10'', this Warm Audio Pro Series XLR Cable is designed to provide a high-end connection between balanced gear with XLR jacks. If you care about the details of your sound onstage and in the studio but want to adhere to a wallet-friendly budget, use this cable to preserve the integrity of mic-level and line-level signal.
To guarantee optimal performance, Warm Audio partnered with renowned Swiss company Gotham AG to supply the core wiring of this cable. The XLR connections offer high-quality silver contacts to keep your signal pristine.
The MDR-7506 is a staple within the recording, film and live arenas. Due to its low impedance and closed-ear design, these headphones do an outstanding job of cutting down background noise while providing plenty of volume in the studio or in the field. Additionally, the closed design helps eliminate headphone bleed when overdubbing in the studio.
The MDR-7506 is an over-ear design and is ideal for use with MIDI workstations, camcorders, or other equipment with less than powerful headphone amplification. The headphone has a foldable design, making it convenient to store or transport, and its coiled cable allows it to stretch and spring back into place whenever you need a bit more reach.
The silver RF-CM-S Reflection Filter from Auray is the perfect solution for recording vocalists or voice over artists in less than stellar acoustic spaces where room reflection would otherwise be recorded along with the vocal, making post processing and mixing more complicated. This might be in a home studio, an untreated rehearsal space, or a makeshift film dialogue replacement situation.
Housed in a deep and sturdy, semicircular perforated aluminum shell, the high density acoustic foam provides a reflection free environment for the microphone, while simultaneously attenuating any room noise. The resulting dry and clearer recordings can then be treated during mixing or film post processing without extraneous noises or unwanted reflections getting in the way.
The filter mounts onto a microphone stand, and front and rear sliding brackets easily allow you to adjust its height and depth for precise microphone placement. Standard 5/8"-27 threaded adapters fit most microphone stands, clips and shockmounts.
The RFMS-580 Reflection Filter Tripod Mic Stand from Auray features heavy-duty steel construction and is capable of providing sturdy support to your reflection filter and studio microphone at the same time. The tripod stand design features collapsible legs for convenient storage, a telescoping center column that can be adjusted to reach a maximum working height of 68".
The stand also features nonslip feet for added traction on hard surfaces as well as a 5/8" threaded adapter for attaching a shockmount or mic clip.
The Auray COHH-2 Clamp-On Headphones Holder for Microphone Stand easily attaches to microphone stands that are up to 0.9" in diameter to provide a hanging hook that supports two pairs of studio headphones. With a sturdy all-metal construction, the holder attaches to the microphone stand using a durable threaded locking knob, which ensures the headphones remain in place and are conveniently accessible while tracking in the studio.
The matte black Auray PFMU-12 is a universal wire mesh pop filter offering sonically transparent control of plosives for podcasters, voiceover artists, narrators, and singers in home, project, and commercial recording studios. Its dual-layer wire mesh screen inhibits pops and distortion frequently caused by "p" and "b" sounds, yielding smoother vocal tracks that require less editing and processing in post-production. The screen also serves as a shield, preventing corrosion by keeping mouth-born moisture from collecting on your mic's capsule.The PFMU-12's rectangular wraparound design imparts a pleasing visual aesthetic, and delivers consistent performance for various microphone styles and source-to-mic angles. The flexible 12" gooseneck ensures accurate placement and quick adjustment, even when swapping out microphones. Attachment and removal of the PFMU-12 is simple and fast via the durable metal C-clamp and convenient thumbscrew. A rubber grommet on the thumbscrew protects your mic stand's finish from scratches.
