Samson, an industry pioneer in professional audio solutions, today announces their new and improved Professional Dynamic Vocal Microphones: Q7x and Q8x. Samson's Q7x and Q8x provide exceptional sound reproduction for live and studio vocal and instrument performances, as well as presentations and podcasting. And with updated body designs and improved capsule shockmount systems, these mics provide reliable performance in even the most demanding environments. The Q7x and Q8x will be available March 2017.
Q7X Professional Dynamic Vocal Microphone
The workhorse Q7x offers a wide dynamic range with tailored mid-range presence produced by its neodymium dynamic mic element. Its smooth frequency response and low frequency roll-off provide balanced audio reproduction no matter the application.
Q8X Professional Dynamic Vocal Microphones
Capturing a wide dynamic range with exceptional mid-range clarity, the flagship Q8x provides a linear frequency response via its neodymium dynamic mic element that is flat with a slight lift around 8kHz. This makes the Q8x ideal for fitting vocals in live mixes with minimal EQ adjustments. In addition, its high saturation level audio transformer aids in the rejection of hum and noise.
Both these mics offer a supercardioid pickup pattern with excellent off-axis rejection, enabling them to pick up all the nuances of any performance with maximum volume and clarity, while reducing feedback and unwanted signals not originating in front of the mics. The Q7x and Q8x feature newly-designed rugged die-cast bodies and hardened steel grilles, along with improved multi-axis (Q7x) and pneumatic (Q8x) capsule shockmounts for minimizing handling noise. Equipped to withstand high sound pressure levels up to 145dB SPL (Q7x) and 150dB SPL (Q8x), these mics allow vocals to sound huge and crystal clear, but can also handle close miking instruments including drums, guitar cabinets and more. Available March 2017.
