    Something different

    The attraction to buy this microphone was because it was Swedish, claimed a frequency range to 87Khz, and had a self noise less than 7dB. First impressions are that it is very "open" grill with the distinctive triangular capsule, quite light with an aluminum shell, and rather "hot" in terms of output. Given there is no pad, close miking guitar amps and loud electric instruments might not practical. Placing the Ehrlund back from the subject allows this microphone to really shine with a natural presence which makes it ideal for grand piano,cellos and double basses, other acoustic stringed instruments and percussion. It handles dynamics with ease without any trill top end, but I can imagine some would not be so keen on this microphone because it can have a brutal honesty opposed to those who prefer a bit of "musical" coloration.One might say it is primarily a sound capturing instrument, and if the sound is musical, it will capture that music palette faithfully. Because of its dynamic capture range, I could see great application with this microphone for foley and atmospherics in film making. This might appear to be a strange esoteric animal in the microphone zoo, but a great addition to the microphone locker if you appreciate its special characteristics.

    Ehrlund EHR-M

    I purchased one of these mics to compare with the Roswell Pro Audio Colares and the Austrian Audio OC818's. All three are great mics, and worthy work horses in any professional or project studio. The OC818 was slightly warmer sounding than the EHR-M, and the Colares had a lot of character that was great on voices that had a lot of interest already (it seemed to enhance that) and it was a bit fuller on the bottom end, while retaining all the detail and sparkle on top without being overly bright. The OC818 was "more transparent" than the Colares, but they are supposed to be that way and it's a good thing in both of their sound. The Ehrlund EHR-M is a whole other beast. I've never heard a mic as transparent and crystal clear articulate as this mic. It's triangular diaphragm is no gimmick, it's a revelation. Never overly bright or hyped... but incredibly detailed and invisible. The bottom end is all there but even it seems more clearly defined. You don't really hear the EHR-M... you just hear what is in front of it. And you hear what is in front of it like you've never heard anything before. It's stunningly good. It sounds like you are just right in front of your vocalist or cellist or guitarist, without any piece of hardware kit between you and them - at all. Smooth, transparent and startlingly clear without ever being hyped or harsh… smooth, sweet, musical magic is what it is. I can add saturation, distortion and warmth with a plugin or pre-amp. I can't get this original pristine signal out of any other mic. I now own a stereo pair. You should too! Amazing mic. Simply stunning.

What We Think


The EHR-M is undoubtedly natural sounding mic, with a wide frequency range. Ehrlund even touts the mic has a7Hz-87kHz response range. That is insanely jaw dropping, and I wish I had the equipment to test that. You have to know that even though we can't hear 35kHz (and well anything above 20kHz), it's presence does effect the way we hear what we can hear. That is why 24bit/96k recordings sound so much better that 24b/48k. So the response of the mic is smile inducing. Then you have a gentle bloom in the low mids that give the mic a more powerful and slightly warm sound. Yet, this low mid presence is not boomy or muddy. It is actually detailed. I noticed how this presence brought out the wood tone of my Taylor 114CE, and let me position the mic farther away that usual – thus getting a bigger picture and development of my guitar, but not lacking the depth of it either. Of course the detail in the upper mids was very noticeable. There is definitely something to that triangular capsule design. The percussive plucking of the string from my pick shined through. The finger scraps were there in all their glory and fine detail (a real HD detail – one that you only hear with the right quality of mic). And, the upper mids and top end had a bright shimmer to it that is just beautiful. So you have this full range response, warm and big low mid, deep dimensional lows, balanced mids, shimmery bright detailed upper mid and top end, all coupled with a dimensional openness you do not expect from a solid state mic. Further, even with all it's bright shining detail, the ERH-M has a pleasant softness to it, so none of that detail is harsh or biting. It is a sweet brightness.
