“It’s been great to get an advanced license of VEA ahead of the launch. I’ve been really impressed with how quickly it can address problematic tape, helping me hit deadlines without sacrificing quality. Typically my plug-in chain includes multiple third-party plugins, but when time is tight and a deadline looms, I use VEA to clean up and shape noisy raw audio.”

Hozier, and the Broken Record podcast, Ben Tolliday

No trade-offs.
No compromises.

The SR117 has the power and quality of a condenser microphone with the safety and familiarity of a dynamic. Its transcendent clarity is easy to mix right out of the box without any special corrective actions. And its exceptional pattern control across all frequencies offers maximum feedback rejection. But that’s only half of the story.

An insane value.
For the total package.

From a technical perspective, the SR117 is exceptionally good. But when you factor in the price tag — nothing else comes close.

This is the microphone that I’ve been waiting for my whole life — at a fraction of the price of anything else!

Jason Batuyong, Monitor Mixer — America’s Got Talent

I love it. It was pretty even across the spectrum. Didn’t sound dark or bright. It was just right.

Chris Demonbreun, FOH Engineer for Keith Urban

The SR117 is “exemplary.”

“Earthworks Audio’s SR117 is exemplary. If anyone is looking for an affordable microphone with a wide possibility of applications, a uniform and transparent frequency response, excellent SPL and noise handling, and superior off-axis rejection, the SR117 should be at the top of their list.”

At home in arenas.
And home studios.

The same enhanced features that make SR117 the right choice for the biggest live venues also deliver in the smaller ones — including your home studio. Exceptional pattern control that’s focused on eliminating feedback for live use also works wonders to control room noise when recording in rooms that haven’t been perfectly treated.

Rugged and Tour Ready

Dressed Down for Stage and TV

Built for touring.
But used everywhere.

If you have to ask if you can use your live mic in the studio,
then you bought the wrong brand.

Because of the fast and clean frequency response, the SR117 will not add any mud to the low frequencies or harshness to the highs. It is voiced with rich, clear lows, smooth vibrant mids and open airy highs ensuring that you will not limit or accentuate your voice in any abnormal ways.

The consistent pattern control enables more directionality and usability ensuring that you keep a good tone and volume level even when vocalists pull away. And the tight pattern control across all frequencies offers maximum feedback rejection.
