Crown PZM-185 Low Impedance PZM Microphone Details

Crown PZM-185 Low Impedance PZM Microphone is a Pressure Zone Microphone, designed for general-purpose use. Ideal for applications such as conferences, group discussions, interviews, broadcast, home video production, lectures, and recordings. Crown PZM-185 Low Impedance PZM Microphone can be placed on a large surface such as a table, floor, wall, or lectern. Crown PZM-185 Low Impedance PZM Microphone is powered either by an internal AAA 1.5V battery or 12-48V phantom power. The boundary "paddle" can be detached so the mic will fit in your pocket. Attached to the mic is an 8-foot (2.438-m) cable leading to a tubular power module. Its low profile design reduces "mic fright" and minimizes clutter. It is nearly invisible on camera and minimizes pickup of vibration and handling noise. Its electret condenser capsule provides a wide, smooth frequency response from 50 Hz to 16 kHz. The mic"?s hemispherical polar pattern allows clear pickup of everyone surrounding the microphone.


Crown PZM-185 Low Impedance PZM Microphone is protected against static and RFI. The output is balanced, low impedance, which allows long cable runs without hum pickup or high-frequency loss. Like other Pressure Zone Microphones, Crown PZM-185 Low Impedance PZM Microphone uses a miniature mic capsule mounted very near a sound-reflecting plate or boundary in the Pressure Zone. In this zone, direct sound from the sound source combines in phase at all frequencies with reflected sound off the boundary. The benefits are many: 6 dB more sensitivity, 6 dB less noise, a wide smooth frequency response free of phase interference, excellent clarity and "reach," and consistent pickup anywhere around the microphone.
