Rycote HC Series Microphones

Rycote enters the professional condenser microphone market with two high-quality shotgun microphones designed from scratch. They are co-developed exclusively by and for Rycote with a handmade and individually fine-tuned back-electret capsule.

 

The HC-15 and HC-22 are high-quality hypercardioid shotgun microphones. Both of these mics offer performance equal to or better than many of the more expensive professional microphones, while also offering a self-noise level lower than almost any equivalent sized shotgun mic at any price.

The microphones provide solid off-axis rejection and isolation with a sound quality to match, making the HC-15 and HC-22 a great all around mics for many recording environments including live broadcast, sound design, ENG, TV, cinema and field recording.
