Earthworks FM500 overview

  • 1Description

The Earthworks FM500 is a professional podium microphone with a flexible gooseneck and sensitive cardioid capsule. As expected with Earthworks, the FM720 delivers pristine audio quality and accurate speech reproduction at up to 90 degrees off-axis. The microphone features a standard 3-pin XLR male base for easy installation into desk and podium flange mounts. The flexible gooseneck provides accurate, quiet microphone positioning. The incredible intelligibility and range make the Earthworks podium microphones a perfect choice for speech in conference rooms, lecture halls, houses-of-worship, auditoriums and more.

Cardioid Polar Pattern
This version of the FM500 podium microphone features a cardioid polar pattern for better intelligibility at the off-axis sections, while minimizing feedback.
Flat Frequency Response
The flat 50Hz to 20kHz frequency response is optimized for speech. The natural low frequency roll-off eliminates noise and proximity effect.
Adjustable Gooseneck
Adjustable gooseneck provides quiet capsule positioning.
High SPL Handling
The Earthworks podium microphones handle high sound pressure levels for minimal distortion and noise at close proximity.
XLR Base
All Earthworks podium microphones feature a 3-pin XLR-male base for easy installation.

    FM500 Podium Microphone (19") (500mm) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mic I've owned Out of the box it worked great with no EQ'ing... best gain before feedback I've had yet. Did I mention it also sounds WONDERFUL. Really captures the exact voicing of our speakers.
