An incredible amount of design attention was put into every detail of the iXm. The buttons are smooth and produce no handling noise. Yet they are also rugged to survive repetitive field operation. They are large, so you can be confident during recording. And they are dust and waterproof to cope with any environmental hazard. The result was worth it: Record and stop buttons exactly where you expect them working just as you require. The iXm truly puts control under your thumb!
One of the things you'll notice about the iXm is that it's extremely easy to use. Because you don't need to constantly monitor levels, you only need three intuitive indicators: Recording Status, Battery Status and Memory Status. And the dashboard is where you expect it, well-positioned and always visible. There is no better way, day or night, to keep your recordings under control. Freed from monitoring, you can concentrate on your interview for a better, more personal recording.
This dynamic mic head is an excellent selection to reject very loud ambience. The slightly reduced frequency response compared to the other Premium Line heads is still superior to other dynamic systems. So is the isolation of handheld noise.
All mic heads support iXm's Twist-Off-Twist-On (TOTO) mount and TOTO auto detection. You can swap heads even between lines at any time and the iXm's parameter setup will automatically adjust to the new capsule.
