The iXm with beyerdynamic’s PREMIUM head with cardioid recording pattern as a directed head is designed for recordings in environments with various noise levels. Thus, it can be called an all-purpose answer for reporters. Because of its sound pickup from the front, it filters background noise and ensures crystal clear recordings through excellent and natural frequency response. The cardioid pickup pattern suits best for interviews in various surroundings like events and outdoor locations with a lot of traffic noise. Using the head, there is no common proximity effect of directed microphones due to the high-pass-filter that is found inside the iXm recorder’s LEA Engine. LEA achieves a perfect balance of frequency ranges.
As an electret microphone head, the head is created to capture smallest sound pressure levels. Thus, its recording pattern is more sensitive in higher frequency ranges which results in a higher resolved pattern in the end zone compared to a dynamic microphone head.
