Sennheiser’s new HandMic digital continues the company’s collaboration with Apogee Electronics, and transforms any smartphone or tablet into a professional recording tool for vocals and speech. Highly resistant to cell phone interference, the cardioid dynamic handheld microphone is ideal for podcasting, or vocal and instrument recording. The HandMic digital comes in an all-metal housing and uses a Sennheiser cardioid capsule that has been shock-mounted to suppress handling noise. The microphone is highly resistant to wind noise and the EMI emitted by cell phones. The HandMic digital cuts through high ambient noise levels, and provides quality audio for speech, vocals and instruments. It is able to handle high sound pressure levels of up to 150 dB, and provides excellent suppression of feedback. Via the supplied cables, the HandMic digital can connect directly to USB inputs or to the Lightning sockets of iOS devices. A microphone clamp and a solid table stand are included too. The microphone can be used with common media production programs and apps, such as FiLMiC Pro, Luci Live, Periscope, Logic Pro X, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Pro Tools, GarageBand and Apogee MetaRecorder.
