From Soft Vocals To Heavy Drums, the U195 Excels!
The Soundelux U195 been called "two mics in one", as it lets you select between "fat" and "norm" modes for bass response tailoring, as well as providing a lo-cut switch. A unique variable pad allows the Soundelux U195 to operate in even the highest SPL situations. One of the best all-around general purpose mics, Soundelux U195 has good extended high & low frequency response, fantastic dynamic impact, and no typical FET mic high end "fizzle".
Built with quality in mind from the beginning
The U195 also provides a pad (-15dB) and rumble filter (-10dB at 30 Hz) - further enhancing this microphone's extraordinary versatility. Component selection and construction reflect Soundelux's dedication to lasting quality. The capsule uses the same 1-inch gold-sputtered diaphragm as the highly regarded Soundelux U95.
The electronics package has no surface mount components. Instead, it incorporates Roderstein resistors, low ESR elecrolytic capacitors, polypropylene coupling capacitors and a unique FET circuit exhibiting remarkable low noise, low capacitance, and extended high frequency characteristics.
No FET fizzle for that signature sound
Ample headroom throughout prevents the FET "fizzle" plaguing other designs, while a massive output transformer maintains coherent signal integrity across the full audio bandwidth.
The "do-it-all" Soundelux
For budget-conscious studios facing a wide range of demands, a U195 serves as the "do-it-all" premium condenser microphone. It delivers superb results on lead vocal tracks as well as in VO/ADR use, providing remarkable fullness and presence with exceptionally low background noise.
Many engineers will find uses for the U195 limited only by their imaginations and ever-changing session demands.
