Sennheiser presents the HandMic digital, which claims to transforms any smartphone or tablet into a quality recording tool for vocals and speech.
Another product of the collaboration between Sennheiser nd Apogee, the HandMic digital uses a proven Sennheiser cardioid capsule that has been shock-mounted to suppress handling noise. It is said to be highly resistant to wind noise and the EMI emitted by cell phones.
The HandMic digital claims to ensure excellent presence, cutting through high ambient noise levels, and to provide quality audio for speech, vocals and instruments. It is reportedly able to handle high sound pressure levels of up to 150 dB, and to provide an excellent suppression of feedback.
Via the supplied cables, the HandMic digital can connect directly to USB inputs or to the Lightning sockets of iOS devices. A microphone clamp and a solid table stand are also included.
The microphone can be used with common media production programs and apps, such as FiLMiC Pro, Luci Live, Periscope, Logic Pro X, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Pro Tools, GarageBand and Apogee MetaRecorder.
The HandMic digital will be available from the third quarter of 2016, but no MSRP was announced as of yet. More details at sennheiser.com.
