Earthworks IM3-S Installation Microphone Details

Earthworks IM3-S Installation Microphone provides a low profile, pristine sounding microphone solution for permanent installations. Featuring a flat frequency response and patented polar technology, orators will maintain the same intelligibility throughout the room without a loss of high frequencies.

Earthworks IM3-S Installation Microphone can be custom mounted in a ceiling, wall or table and will provide the ultimate in sound quality, flexibility and ease of installation. Earthworks IM3-S Installation Microphone's uniquely designed small head and 3 inch mini-gooseneck allow it to be easily and precisely positioned. Comes in an attractive silver finish.

Earthworks IM3-S Installation Microphone's near-perfect polar response will not beam or spotlight and will provide very high intelligibility. The frequency response of both the cardioid or hypercardioid at 90 degrees off-axis is within 2dB of the on-axis response (over its operating frequency range). This overall uniform frequency response of the hypercardioid is at least 5dB down at 90 degrees off-axis. This exceptional polar response allows the use of fewer microphones, while obtaining higher intelligibility and more gain before feedback.

David Blackmer invented a number of new microphone technologies resulting in a totally new approach to microphone design. One such technology resulted in the creation of near-perfect polar patterns. When you look at a polar pattern of Earthworks IM3-S Installation Microphone, the mid-frequencies, high-frequencies and low-frequencies all look very close to a ??textbook? polar pattern. In practice this means the polar response of Earthworks IM3-S Installation Microphone is extremely uniform over its operating frequency range; the frequency response at 90 degrees off-axis is very close to the on-axis response. This uniform polar response results in less phase problems and much higher intelligibility at the sides of Earthworks IM3-S Installation Microphone.
