Description

You’re installing a new sound system in your community’s local theater, and you must configure the theater’s amps and speakers so the audience can hear everything. You know you need a measurement microphone, but good ones can cost more than $1,000. What do you do?

Look no further than the Earthworks M23 Omnidirectional Measurement Microphone, which gives you the tools to get the job done quickly, efficiently and accurately.

Sorting out amp and speaker placement isn’t the only use for the Earthworks M23. What if you’re recording a nature scene for some B-roll and need to capture the habitat’s sound accurately? Maybe you need the natural sounds to incorporate into a musical composition and you need a microphone that’s sensitive enough to pick up those ambient sounds. Or you’re trying to repair a stereo speaker and need to get an accurate measurement of its output.

The Earthworks M23 is a versatile piece of equipment that fits into most budgets, but is responsive and accurate enough to get the job done.

Earthworks Audio is known throughout the world for its precision microphones, and they’ve hit it out of the park with their M-Series omnidirectional measurement microphone series, particularly with the Earthworks M23. The M23 is as good or better than one of those $1,000 microphones at less than half the cost.

This measurement microphone has a flat frequency response that extends from 3Hz to 23kHz. Its all-direction polar response is unparalleled with a rating of up to 140dB without any distortion – period. It’s perfect for picking up ambient sound for nature videos by everyone from professionals to backyard videographers.

Whether you’re testing amplifiers, setting up a room for the best acoustics or conducting scientific research in the Amazon, the Earthworks M23 is precise enough and sturdy enough to get the job done. Anywhere you need an accurate free-field measurement, this microphone is your star.

The Earthworks M23 Measurement Microphone is built to withstand most climates, despite temperature or pressure changes, and has virtually no handling noise so you can record what’s important, not the sound of your hand touching the mic. It delivers reliable and repeatable data, so you can be confident the information you glean from the Earthworks M23 is accurate.

This reference microphone works with high-quality FFT-based audio measurement software and can be used for everything from PA system alignment to rocket audio tests.

You can be sure your Earthworks M23 has been tested and calibrated right from the manufacturer. Each unit is hand-tuned and has its own frequency response chart. After you register your purchase, you can download the Electronic Calibration File for your measurement microphone for free.

You can count on GIgaSonic for personal customer service. From the Earthworks M23 reference microphone’s manufacturing facility in New Hampshire to our store in California to your front door, GigaSonic is with you all along the way. You can count on GigaSonic, because we’ve got your back!
