Where Intelligibility Meets Performance

When capturing every word is critical, the Earthworks IM microphones are the most reliable miking solution. Optimized for speech, the Installation Series microphones feature a flat frequency response out to 30kHz that delivers the highest level of speech intelligibility and articulation. This means less straining to understand the words being spoken due to poor audio quality, so more time can be spent understanding the message being transmitted.

Integrated microphone, stand and boom in a single, low profile unit

No visible wires or cables above floor level for a low profile appearance

Wide coverage area with better intelligibility

30kHz capsule reproduces incredible detail and articulation

Less Is More

Its near-perfect polar pattern is consistent across all frequencies, which simplifies microphone placement and and ensures more gain before feedback. With 32dB of rear rejection, it is ideal for live performances where they may be bleed from surrounding instruments.

The FlexWand’s wide coverage area allows for the use of fewer Earthworks microphones with better coverage and sound quality. And there is no spotlighting, so no one voice will stand out ahead of the rest. Instead, your choir will sound like a unified voice instead of a bunch of separate voices.

Form Follows Function

The FW730 incorporates a large flex section near the center of the stand that couples the stand and the wand, allowing you to adjust the microphone from its tallest height at 7’2” (FW730) or 4’7″ (FW430) to 1.5′ (FW730) or 10″ (FW430) above the ground and anywhere in between.

Its low profile appearance virtually disappears from sightlines in the congregation, audience or on camera.
