Front Address Condenser
The LS-208 is a noise-rejecting large diaphragm condenser microphone for live, recording and broadcast applications. This high-fidelity replacement to classic end-address dynamic microphones is equipped with two dedicated filters for immediate sound-shaping at the source. Record vocals and percussion with impact and clarity or flip a switch to capture electric guitars with warmth and unprecedented realism. In addition to its timbral flexibility, the LS-208 has the ability to withstand a staggering 135dB of SPL without internal padding, making it a uniquely powerful choice for extremely loud and dynamic sound sources.
HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE AND SPL
The ability to withstand 135dB of SPL without internal padding makes the LS-208 a perfect choice for extremely loud and dynamic sound sources. Even at close proximity, the sound of the LS-208 remains astonishingly natural and life-like.
Record guitars, drums, horns and vocals in the same room, live, with superior sound quality and isolation.
STUDIO QUALITY ANYWHERE
Because of its off-axis noise rejection and flexible sound, the LS-208 is a powerful drop-in replacement for traditional end-address dynamic microphones. Capture vocals with intimate clarity, drums with explosive impact, and guitar amplifiers with depth and unprecedented realism.
ANALAG SOUND SHAPING
Two dedicated filters allow for analog sound-shaping at the source, removing the need to change out microphones in order to get the sound you want. Record a tight and bright snare drum or a dark and sultry vocal at the flip of a switch.
The LS-208 signal path is hand-populated with high resolution, low distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, a USA made FET, and a custom wound output transformer. The result is a natural and true-to-life sound with exceptional isolation and transient response.
