Sanken CUB-01 overview

  • 1Description

The gray CUB-01 from Sanken is a boundary microphone that features a small profile while delivering a sound synonymous with large diaphragm microphones. The CUB-01 is an excellent choice for conferences, boardrooms, courtrooms, news broadcasts, film and more. The microphone features a unique square-shaped cardioid capsule, which significantly enlarges the area of the diaphragm. This proprietary design results in a rich, natural, "full-bodied" sound quality that is often associated with large diaphragm condenser microphones.

The CUB-01 is easily installed into any surface with minimal effort and its miniature profile renders the microphone inconspicuous. The wide frequency response effectively reproduces speech, instruments and ambiance. The cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes off-axis noise and ambiance while providing a focused pick up.

Hemispherical - Cardioid Polar Pattern
The CUB-01 features a cardioid pick up pattern at the upper-hemisphere of the capsule. The result is excellent noise and phase suppression at the surface while maintaining a generous pick up area at the top.
Miniature Design
The miniature design results in inconspicuous, low profile microphone placement.
Square Capsule Design
The square diaphragm results in a larger diaphragm area. The result is a sound quality synonymous with large diaphragm condenser microphones.
XLR Output Connector
The CUB-01 features a standard 3-pin XLR male output and is powered with 48V phantom power.

    Sanken CUB-01 reviews

    CUB-01 Boundary Microphone (Gray) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boundary? Maybe not. The description of the CUB-01 is somewhat misleading. The cardioid pattern is not vertical but horizontal. The pickup pattern is sideways in one direction. This makes the mic not suitable for plopping down in the middle of a table surrounded by people speaking or sticking it to the headliner of a car. The directionality is roughly indicated by the polar pattern badge on top of the mic. I say roughly because on the one I tested the pattern was off by about 20 degrees clockwise. To mic two people in a car well you would need a CUB-01 for each person. The CUB-01 doesn't function like a boundary layer microphone to my ears. There is no discernible difference in room reverberation whether the mic is on or off a surface nor is there a boost in higher frequencies. For me it sounds more like a boundary mic if placed upside down on a hard surface. It's a good sounding mic useful mainly as a directional plant mic in my opinion. I am a film sound recordist with many years of experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent problem solver Have used it in a moving car mounted on the cieling near the rearview mirror and managed to capture the dialog from the driver, passenger and even from the back seat. Much better than lavs when talent are wearing seatbelts.
