Holophone debut world's weirdest microphone
Holophone®, a leading manufacturer of surround microphones, introduce the H3-D Microphone. Based on the company's successful and patented H2-PRO, Holophone's H3-D is a portable and economical 5.1 multi-channel professional surround sound microphone. An ideal solution for broadcast, recording, and studio applications, the H3-D hits the sweet spot in cost and performance for growing technology markets such as project studios, education, and houses of worship.
"Our goal is to make surround sound capture and recording accessible to new and emerging markets in places where it has been traditionally too expensive or complicated," says Michael Godfrey, president and founder of Holophone.
Holophone's H3-D instantly eliminates the need for difficult, expensive, and time consuming multiple-microphone surround set-ups. Custom-designed to support 5.1 surround-sound recording devices, the H3-D provides leading-edge 3-D surround audio, while shattering the price to performance barrier — the H3-D retails for $1,695.
Additionally, the H3-D provides an intelligent array of features, such as a six-channel discrete microphone manufactured to automatically deliver 5.1 channels with no external mixing or signal manipulation needed. It has a multi-directional pickup pattern with
20Hz-20KHz frequency response on five perimeter channels and a discrete LFE microphone located inside. The microphone is phantom powered with an LED indicator. Attached to the H3-D is a 15 ft. (5m) Monster® cable that terminates in a 6-pin Neutrik® XLR connector. A Windscreen and Pistol Grip are optional accessories.
