    When capturing every word is critical, the IM microphones are the most reliable miking solution. Optimized for speech, the IM 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.

    Whether speaking directly on-axis or to the sides of the microphone, the IM microphone always reproduces the speaker’s voice with incredible clarity and intelligibility. This wider coverage also means that fewer Earthworks microphones are required to properly cover a conference room, cutting down on the number of channels of DSP, cables and other ancillary equipment required for the system. Compatible with all DSP systems that provide 24-48V phantom power, the IM microphones can easily integrate into existing system designs or new installations.

    Designed with aesthetics in mind, the IM microphones feature a slim 0.375“ (9.5mm) gooseneck that allows precise positioning of the microphone for optimal coverage. The microphone flange measures just over 1.4 inches (36.5mm) wide and 0.125 inches (3.2mm) tall, mounting flush into the tabletop or ceiling.

    The IM microphones are available with a 3, 6, 10 or 12 inch flexible gooseneck. Black, white and silver finishes are available.
