Sennheiser launches Evolution 912 S pre-polarized condenser microphone
Sennheiser is launching the Evolution 912 S, a high-quality, pre-polarized condenser microphone with half-cardioid pick-up pattern that has been acoustically optimized for speech applications. The e 912 S boundary microphone features a very unobtrusive design that permits discrete placement on flat surfaces.
The new e 912 S offers a frequency response curve that is specifically tailored for picking up speech over relatively short distances, but may be switched to perform similarly to its sister product, the Sennheiser e 912, which is designed for instrument pick-up. An internal DIP switch bank allows the e 912 S microphone’s frequency response curve to match the response of the e 912, or may alternatively be switched to select low cut, low and high boost (factory preset), or low boost.
The e 912 S may be switched on or off using the integrated programmable membrane switch. A second internal DIP switch bank provides additional features to be selected, including on/off (factory preset), push-to-talk button (PTT), cough button (PTM) or permanently switched on (ON).
The form factor of the e 912 S offers an extremely rugged sound inlet basket, a rubber damping plate on the base and a very unobtrusive, flat design that is ideally suited to a variety speech applications. Slots are provided for mounting the e 912 S on a flat surface. The microphone features integrated electronics, rather than an in-line preamp, and is supplied as standard with a gold-plated XLR connector.
The Sennheiser e 912 S boundary microphone has a frequency response of 20 -20,000Hz and offers a maximum sound pressure level of 134dB (at 1kHz). The e 912 S measures 4.9 x 4.1 x 1.04 inches and weighs just 19.4 oz. Available in three choices of finish – black, Nextel gray or creme white – to suit any installation, it ships with a pouch, user manual and warranty certificate.
