Manufacturer's Description from Earthworks

Earthworks cardioid microphones have patented near-perfect cardioid patterns. The sound across the entire front hemisphere is remarkably uniform and is flatter at 90 degrees than most microphones are on-axis. The SR Series have an incredible transparent sound quality, offering near-perfect polar response and high rejection of sounds at the rear of the microphone, resulting in less leakage and more gain before feedback.

Frequency Response: 30Hz – 30kHz ±2dB at 6 inches (15cm)

Polar Pattern: Cardioid or Hypercardioid

Sensitivity: 10mV/Pa (-40dBV/Pa)

Power Requirements: 48V Phantom, 10mA

Max Acoustic Input: 145dB SPL

Output: XLR (pin 2+)

Output Impedance: 100 , balanced (50 ea. pin 2 & 3)

Min Output Load: 600 between pins 2 & 3

Noise: 22dB SPL equivalent (A weighted)

Dimensions L x D: 212mm x x 22mm (8.4 x .860 inches)

Weight: .5 lb (225g)

About Manufacturer

Earthworks was formed by David Blackmer, the inventor of dbx, to realize his vision of upgrading the entire audio chain to a new standard of sonic realism. David's goal of creating high definition tools with which to capture the sound and experience of "being there" is based upon a strong evidence that there is more to human hearing than the range of frequencies which can be heard as tones. We are convinced that audio equipment with extended frequency response and faster, cleaner time domain performance will yield more life-like results. Traditional audio methadology appears to be based on working around the limitations, imperfections, and personality quirks of the equipment, and calling the ones you like "assets". WE believe that any part of the audio chain can be improved to the point where the standard is so high that any product meeting it will be indistinguishable from any other product meeting the same standard, and that an audio system built to such standard can achieve sonic reality. This standard, for electronic equipment, is met by our Zero Distortion Technology. We support the concept of recording acoustic events accurately enough to capture the sound as it happened in the room. This approah allows you to make sonic coloration and texture choices later, when you can consider them carefully and still have recourse. Life-like accuracy is the best starting point for whatever unique coloration you may wish to add.
