Not only this but adding to its versatility is the high gain output, which helps provide very-low floor noise and absolutely no colouration to the output signal, resulting in neutral vocal and instrument sound reproduction.

Additionally, this microphone is capable of handling high-pressure levels for up to 142 dB, making it an ideal option for close miking of vocals as well as instruments even at peak level response (high transient).
