Superlux E524D X/Y Stereo Pencil Condenser Stereo Microphone
About this Superlux E524D X/Y Stereo Pencil Condenser Stereo Microphone
The Superlux E524D is an XY stereo microphone, with a pair of small-diaphragm (16mm) Cardioid electret capsules mounted in a fixed XY 90 array. The mic can be phantom powered (9-48V) or battery powered with single 1.5V AA. The microphones frequency response and max SPL do not change when operating via battery power. A single switch on the mic body turns on battery power. A blue LED flashes once at startup to indicate that power is present. The published frequency response graph shows a gradual roll off below 200Hz, and a smooth +5dB presence boost 8.5kHz. The high end rolls off above 13kHz.
The microphone is terminated with 5-pin XLR-M jack which converts to 2 x male XLR using the splitter cable provided.

- Superlux E524D X/Y Stereo Pencil Condenser Stereo Microphone

Punches well above it's weightBy: John on 9 December 2019For the price, the audio is actually quite nice. Perhaps a little light on the bottom end but good mid and bright top end. A tad quieter noise floor than my AT 822. The switch on mine seems a little dodgy - occasionally I switch it on and there's an extra 20db of noise that I didn't order but most of the time it's quite acceptable - particularly for the price. Outwardly, the build seems solid. Plastic box is overly large and the 5m cable is not terribly....um....supple. I put a couple video reviews up on youtube under quedecree.
pleasantly surprisedBy: Aidan Vogt on 25 November 2019Picked this unit up on sale to try as a live OH mic for a small church. Thru it up and immediately was impressed with what i was hearing. minimal EQ + dynamics require Would recommend
