yellowtec ixm pro head yt5051

The Yellowtec iXm PRO Head YT5051 is a PRO Line cardioid mic head for the Yellowtec iXm reporter’s microphone. The PRO Line features mic heads that are fine-tuned for the requirements of everyday interview work. All PRO Line heads are rugged dynamic microphones with enhanced magnetic technology.

This dynamic mic head is specially designed for interviewing. The cardioid pattern is mostly used to manage complex acoustic environments. The frequency response curve is optimised for excellent capture and intelligibility of speech, offering a warm sound with a slight bass boost in the near-field.

As dynamic microphone capsules, the iXm PRO Line Mic Heads are characterised by their sound converter components’ ruggedness, especially at high sound pressure levels. Their recording patterns are less sensitive in higher frequency ranges compared to electret microphone heads. The dynamic heads’ sluggish membranes lead to different sounding recording results. Due to their dynamic mic, the heads of the iXm PRO Line are less sensible for wind noise or structure born noise and offer an optimised frequency response for excellent speech capture.

Yellowtec’s iXm PRO microphone head with a cardioid recording pattern is designed as a directed head for recordings in environments with various noise levels. It is known as an allrounder which is a solid choice even for complex acoustic environments. Because of its sound pickup from the front, it filters background noise. Its optimal frequency response ensures brilliant voice recording and clarity. The cardioid pickup pattern suits best for interviews in various surroundings like events and outdoor locations with a lot of traffic noise.

When using the cardioid PRO head, there is a slight bass boost in the near-field, but no common high proximity effect of directed microphones. Due to the high-pass filter that is found inside the iXm Recorder’s LEA Engine, a perfect balance of frequency ranges is achieved.

As a dynamic microphone capsule, the head is characterized by its sound converter components’ ruggedness, especially at high sound pressure levels. Its recording pattern is less sensitive in higher frequency ranges compared to an electret microphone head. In comparison, the dynamic head’s sluggish membrane leads to different sounding recording results.
