Holophone reveal omni and cardioid mikes

Multi-channel surround microphone makers announce new models

Omnidirectional microphone from HolophoneHolophone Big OPress Release: Holophone, the world's foremost innovator in multi-channel surround microphone technology, has unveiled two more single-channel microphones set to debut at the upcoming NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.

Holophone's Big O omnidirectional mic and C+ cardioid mic join the company's recently announced Super C supercardioid condenser, forming a trio of ultra high quality, customizable microphones designed for the most critical live, recording, and broadcast applications. As Holophone founder and President Michael Godfrey explains, these new mics are anything but ordinary.

"The microphone market is overrun with boring, unimaginative mics that have nothing new to offer in terms of styling or sonic performance," says Godfrey. "Simply put, we believe it's time for something new and completely different, and we're issuing a wake-up call to the pro audio industry."

Holophone's Big O (right) is a full-frequency, 20Hz-20kHz omnidirectional mic designed to take center stage, with an articulate and natural tone, minimal proximity effect, and a cool, eye-catching look. Available in matched pairs, the Big O is ideal for drum overheads, acoustic guitars, large vocal groups and choirs. 

The C+ (left) is a true cardioid condenser that combines excellent feedback rejection with a warm, articulate tone. With its raw, ballsy sound and fat bottom end, the C+ features a rugged metal exterior and classic design that looks great on a stand or in the hand.

"We've designed these new microphones to be more than just the best sounding mics you'll ever use," comments Holophone CEO Jonathan Godfrey. "They're also designed to enhance your stage and give your performance that extra edge. Finally, the microphone can claim its rightful place as an instrument in its own right. You wouldn't hide your guitar, so why hide your mic?"

The C+ and Big O will will retail for $489 each. UK pricing and availability are still to be announced.
