  • Available in 13″ (328mm), 19″ (475mm), 23″ (589mm) and 27″ (686mm) lengths
  • Available in cardioid and hypercardioid
  • Available with fully flexible gooseneck and rigid center gooseneck
  • Uniform frequency response on or off-axis
  • Flat from 50Hz to 20kHz within ± 2dB at 12 inches
  • Will handle up to 145dB SPL
  • No handling noise
  • High rejection of sounds to the rear of the microphone
  • RFI resistant
  • Incredible gain before feedback
  • Orators can speak above, below or to either side of the microphone and maintain the same pristine sound quality with high intelligibility

Earthworks’ patented technologies incorporated into the FlexMic™ Series provide a high level of speech intelligibility and uniform off-axis response to ensure the orator is heard clearly, with no loss in sound quality, when speaking at the front or at the sides of the microphone. This smooth off-axis response also provides more gain before feedback. With 145dB SPL max acoustic input, it is virtually impossible to overload the microphone. There is also high rejection of sounds from the rear of the microphone, with no handling noise in addition to incredible RFI rejection. Designed specifically for use as a podium microphone, the FlexMic™ Series offers numerous versatile features and options that make these microphones ideal for public speaking venues including lecture halls, presentation spaces, churches, civic centers, theaters, and government facilities.

Frequency Response

Cardioid Polar Response

Hypercardioid Polar Response

On a conventional microphone, the high frequency losses on the sides are also the same above and below the mic. So, when an orator speaks under the microphone there will be the same loss of high frequencies as on the sides of the microphone. Likewise, when the orator speaks above the microphone the same high frequency losses will also be present. To illustrate this, the figures on the left show a conventional microphones pickup area (with full frequency response) from above and from either side of a podium.

In contrast, the figures on the right show the pickup area (with full frequency response) of an Earthworks directional microphone, both above, and at the sides of a podium. Notice the dramatic increase of the coverage area providing the full frequency response of the microphone.
