AEA R84 Mic Pack at a Glance:

  • Outstanding transient response for natural sound
  • Superb SPL handling
  • Packaged with a high-quality mic stand, pop filter, and cable

Outstanding transient response for natural sound

The AEA R84 uses a big, 2.35" by 0.185" by 2 micron pure aluminum low-tension ribbon element, that ensures a quick response, whatever the application. This means that percussive attacks, vocal consonants, and other rapid-attack material are cleanly and accurately reproduced by the R84 with no "dull' or "flabby" characteristics. It sounds just like you're standing right in front of the source!

Superb SPL handling

The R84 produces solid bass down to 20Hz and clean, clear highs up to 20kHz. Plus, it's capable of handling better than 165 dB SPL at higher frequencies, so whether used on vocals or instruments the R84 offers a performance that covers the entire frequency and dynamic range yet is still intimate, warm and detailed, yet never harsh.

Packaged with a high-quality mic stand, pop filter, and cable

It really doesn't matter how good of a microphone you're using if you don't have a good way of hooking them up to your system.
