Hyper-Cardioid Polar Pattern
The hyper-cardioid polar pattern of Audix D2 is effective in eliminating noise and ambiance at the off-axis sections of the microphone.
Contoured Mid-Bass Frequency Response
The D2 features a frequency response of 44Hz to 18kHz. A mid-range bump accentuates the tonal response of floor toms, congas and more, the natural low frequency roll-off reduces noise.
High SPL Handling
The D2 can accurately handle signals with sound pressure levels registering at 144dB. Transient peaks are reproduced without distortion due to overload.
