NAMM 2021: With ICON (USB microphone) and ICON Pro (XLR microphone), Earthworks Audio presents two condenser streaming microphones for podcasts with a Triad-Orbit M2-R adapter and professional sound.
The Earthworks ICON is a studio-quality USB condenser microphone designed for home recording, remote work, podcasting, and gaming. It has a gain control with mute function and a headphone output. With a cardioid polar pattern and a fast impulse response, the microphone should offer a very high sound quality.
In cooperation with Triad-Orbit, a suitable microphone stand was developed that is slim and robust. In addition, the integrated M-2R swivel joint can be used with any studio microphone stand.

Earthworks ICON PRO
The Earthworks ICON Pro also has a Triad-Orbit M2-R adapter and comes in a modern stainless steel design. It has a capsule with a fast impulse response of only 11.67 microseconds, which should give vocals and speech a full and detailed sound.
