Audix has announced the release of the HT7, a single ear headworn miniaturised condenser microphone for vocal applications.
The omnidirectional unit features an ear piece that can be worn around either the left or right ear, while the adjustable length boom arm is designed to be easy to position. The modular design of the HT7 allows for replaceable parts when necessary, and the microphone can be used wireless or wired with an optional phantom power adapter. Engineered for use with wireless body pack systems such as the Audix RAD360, the HT7 can be used with other brands of wireless body packs. A selection of adapters is available depending on the input connectors of the body pack.
Designed to blend with the skin tone of the wearer, the HT7 is available in three colours—beige, black and coffee. The HT7 microphone comes with a windscreen, adapter and storage pouch.
In a statement to the press, Audix co-founder and VP of sales Cliff Castle said: “Primarily designed for use with wireless systems, the HT7 combines the great acoustic sound Audix is known for with an extremely low profile and discreet design, making it an ideal microphone for speech and stage presentations.”
With an MSRP of $345, the HT7 is suitable for houses of worship, theatres, corporate and academic presenters. The unit is set to ship in August 2015.
