Manufacturer's Description from Josephson

The C705 is a versatile studio microphone using a large diameter, centersupported single diaphragm cardioid capsule derived from our C715, and the discrete FET cascode input circuit and symmetrical balanced transformerless output circuit of the C716. The capsule, using a 5 micron gold-metallized diaphragm and precision machined internal surfaces, provides a smooth and very extended high end, and the enhanced proximity effect characteristic of single-diaphragm mics. This combination provides a new range of control for vocal pickup without sibilance, with a variety of tone colors possible by careful selection of distance and angle to the microphone. It’s also excellent for detailed instrument pickup without the harshness typical of many large-diaphragm mics, and works well with a variety of preamps and input stages, due to its low output impedance.

The housing is made of case-hardened steel with a unique offset grille support structure that greatly reduces internal reflections. The entire capsule assembly is internally shockmounted, so the microphone can be attached directly to a stand through its yoke mount. The black finish from the hardening process is very rugged for long life in studio and stage applications.

The design of the C705 includes the best parts of several Josephson microphones, at a lower cost due to using a cardioid-only capsule, a steel housing with a rugged industrial finish rather than a cosmetic plated finish on brass, and an output connector on the microphone body rather than an attached output cable.

About Manufacturer

Josephson Engineering makes a wide range of fine condenser microphones for studio, stage and field sound pickup, and audio instrumentation. The company began in San Jose, California in 1988 and moved to Santa Cruz in 2000. This is our 20th year of producing microphones. In the process of developing our own mics, we've come up with special technologies that let us realize designs that weren't possible in classic mics of years past. This means that the expert user has a wider range of sound choices, without many of the compromises of older designs. Besides our own production, we also supply microphone capsules to several other mic manufacturers that become the mics for their most demanding customers. All of our business is individual -- we use select local dealers who bring our product directly to critical users around the world. We have a standard product line that covers many applications, but if there's a microphone you need that we don't make, we'll either tell you about the best one we know of for that job, or make it for you ourselves. We won't tell you that one of our mics is good for everything -- there's no such thing. Josephson also provides electro-acoustical engineering, design and manufacturing services for challenging requirements in many industries, specializing in microphone transducers and supporting systems. Our OEM capabilities have allowed several companies to excel in their own markets, using capsules made by Josephson.
