ELECTRET CONDENSER CARDIOID MICROPHONE
The CAD C195 is a superior low-noise, electret condenser cardioid microphone
designed for professional vocalists and musicians. The CAD C195 provides the
performance and features to satisfy today's most demanding professionals.
The wide and flat frequency response of the CAD C195 provides unsurpassed
natural transparent sound quality. The cardioid pickup pattern minimizes annoying
feedback (when used close to sound reinforcement speakers and monitors) and
reduces the pickup of unwanted off-axis sounds. A transformerless electronic
design provides optimum low frequency response and low distortion. An effective
internal multistage pop filter minimizes wind and breath noise.
The CAD C195 has a Flex-FormTM hardened steel grille screen that dramatically
resists deformation while greatly reducing any risk of adverse performance caused
by a bent or dented ball screen. This unique ability to retain its original shape
assures that the CAD C195 will maintain its attractive appearance.
The CAD C195 features the CAD exclusive (I.N.R.-3TM) Impact Noise Rejection
system. Our proprietary rubber shock mount isolates the transducer from the barrel,
thus dramatically reducing cable, stand and handling noise. The need for any external
shock mounting device is virtually eliminated.
The low-frequency response of the CAD C195 may be enhanced by increasing
or decreasing the distance from the sound source. This phenomenon is technically
known as “proximity effect”. Nominal or “flat” response is generated at a distance
of 24 inches or more. However, as the distance to the sound source decreases,
the bass sensitivity increases, providing a solid, robust character.
The CAD C195 is supplied complete with a zippered vinyl protective pouch and
a snap-in microphone swivel-mount.
