Own your stage.

A near-perfect hypercardioid polar pattern means more gain before feedback and no feedback issues.

Your Voice, and Nothing Else

Massive rear rejection and a polar pattern that’s consistent across the entire frequency range means any off-axis leakage is virtually nonexistent.

Your Voice,

And Nothing Else

Clean on-axis response up to 90 degrees off-axis and more than 30dB of rear rejection.

Give It Your All

Capable of handling sound pressure levels of up to 145dB without distortion, the SR40V can handle nearly any vocalist.

This is an easy one; the SR40V really sounds nice and natural—I can pretty much say without any doubt that I have not heard a handheld condenser sound this good in my life.
The full range of his voice and the dynamics were there, along with the other vocal sounds, lip smacks, and so on that you would hear if you were sitting across from him at a table having a conversation.

I found myself marveling at the amazing depth, clarity and nuance I heard through the PA. If sound check was an eye-opener, the show was statement. The SR40V delivers an elegant, warmly realistic, complex and finely detailed vocal sound.
Equally well-matched for male and female voices across a range of styles, this is one of the best vocal mics we’ve come across.
The SR40V has the inherent quality and smooth top-end extension of a “studio” mic but one that is, by design, quite useful when placed a little closer to sources, taking advantage of some proximity effect just as is often done in live sound reinforcement.
The SR40V came over with a good balance of highs and lows, sounding very natural and transparent. I’d certainly have no qualms using it for a studio session, and because the mic doesn’t have specific character engineered in, it should suit a wide range of vocal styles and voice types.
The SR40V is so transparent it lets the engineer enhance the channel EQ to suit the vocalist without having to ‘undo’ any mic-specific characteristics that don’t work in a situation.
The attention to design and manufacturing details makes this a superior microphone, and in the tests it lived up to its ambitious specifications.
The SR40V has the condenser sound without the harshness of most other handheld condenser vocal mics. It is a very smooth, sweet sounding microphone.

The benefit to me is that I can make it sound any way I want, depending on the application. Because of the super fast rise time of the small diaphragm, I can add and subtract EQ without it ever sounding ‘tubby or flabby.’ Its natural presence and tightness is quite unique.
