The construction of the mic body is computer machined from solid brass inside & out. No plastic is used anywhere in the construction to hold it together or mount the PCB unlike other microphones that sell for similar prices. The S-Mic 2 uses a high-end capsule, computer designed circuitry, and features a gold coated PCB (printed circuit board). The PCB is also sprayed and coated with a clear epoxy which allows the microphone to perform without issues even in the most humid environments. This coating also gives the microphone a water resistance level that allows it to work in the rain without being damaged. The body of the microphone has been sprayed with a black speckle paint to give it an ultra durable finish, so it looks professional in front of clients for years of ownership and makes it less reflective on set.
Super Cardioid Pattern
The S-Mic 2 features a super cardioid polar pattern, offering -18dB of off axis reject.
Ultra Low Self Noise
The S-Mic 2 has an ultra low noise floor at 12dB (A-weighted), 24dB (CCIR 268-3). Combined with its anti-RF interference build, the S-Mic 2 is able to be boosted with gain with a lot less background noise than some microphones on the market.
Hear What The Critics Are Saying
“I’ve heard a few comparisons online of this new S-Mic 2 and the 416… I can’t for the life of me tell a significant difference, at least not $600 difference.”
“I tested the self-noise level by cranking up the gain on my Apogee Duet iOS/Mac, listening for when hiss would become audible. The S-Mic 2 was as quiet as the Sennheiser. But does it sound good? To my ears, yes, it does.”
“I was also very pleased with how it held up against the MKH-50 in terms of overall sound quality. The 50 is one of my daily drivers for mics, and its hard for me to not heavily scrutinize other options. But the S-Mic 2 really did a great job. It had a nice warm tone, and great handling of off-axis sounds.”
To better protect your microphone, every Deity S-Mic 2 comes with a waterproof hard case. The hard case features a rubber O-ring in the lid that seals the case tight and an auto air-pressure balanced feature ensuring your microphone is safe and ready to go.
