Taking its name for Austin’s legacy area code, 512 Audio, based in that city, introduces itself with a handful of products, notably a pair of microphones.
Of chief interest to Radio World readers would be the Limelight microphone (shown). Roughly resembling a black version of a well-known radio broadcast mic standard, Limelight has a hypercardioid pattern with a dynamic capsule that “meets the needs of today’s podcasters, broadcasters, and streamers,” according to the company.
It has a built-in pop filter and low-frequency cut filter at 100Hz. The company specs Limelight 50 Hz–15 kHz.
Also coming out of the 512 Audio stable is the Skylight, a large diaphragm cardioid studio-style microphone. Both mics go for $199.99.
512 Audio is also offering a set of headphones, along with a boom arm and a metal mesh pop filter.
