Lauten Audio LS-208 Front-Address Condenser Microphone

With its tight cardioid pattern, this end-address condenser is a natural on vocals and voiceovers, or loud sources like drums: it handles up to 135 dB SPL!
Because of its off-axis noise rejection and flexible sound, the Lauten Audio LS-208 is a powerful drop-in replacement for traditional front-address dynamic microphones. Capture vocals with intimate clarity, drums with explosive impact, and guitar amplifiers with depth and unprecedented realism.

Exceptional Isolation

Record guitars, drums, horns and vocals in the same room, live, with superior sound and isolation.

High Dynamic Range and SPL

The ability to withstand a staggering 135dB of SPL without internal padding makes the LS-208 a perfect choice for extremely loud and dynamic sound sources. Even at close proximity, the sound of the LS-208 remains astonishingly natural and life-like.

Analog Sound Shaping

Two dedicated filters allow for immediate sound-shaping right at the source, removing the need to change out microphones in order to get the sound you want. Record a tight and bright snare drum or a dark and sultry vocal at the flip of a switch.

Premium Components

The LS-208 signal path is finalized with high resolution, low distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, a USA made FET, and a custom wound output transformer. The result is a natural and true-to-life sound with exceptional isolation and transient reponse.
