Yellowtec iXm Bundle with Cardioid PREMIUM Line Head – Cardioid


Yellowtec iXm Bundle with Cardioid PREMIUM Line Head

As an out-of-the-box solution to get started right away, the iXm Bundle suits best. Choosing the bundle with the iXm’s beyerdynamic PREMIUM head with cardioid pattern, you equip yourself with the all-in-one package designed for recordings in environments with various noise levels.
beyerdynamic’s PREMIUM microphone head with cardioid recording pattern is an all-purpose answer for reporters. Because of its sound pickup from the front, it filters background noise and ensures crystal clear recordings through excellent and natural frequency response. The cardioid pickup pattern suits best for interviews in various surroundings like events and outdoor locations with a lot of traffic noise. As an electret microphone head, the PREMIUM cardioid is created to capture smallest sound pressure levels. Its recording pattern is more sensitive in higher frequency ranges which results in a higher resolved pattern in the end zone compared to a dynamic microphone head.


Your iXm Bundle comes with an iXm Recording Microphone, a cardioid PREMIUM beyerdynamic microphone head, one of our black Yellowtec windscreens and a 32GB Wifi Card. From the very start, this WiFi-SD-Card allows you to take full advantage of Yellowtec’s iXm Uplink App for iOS and Android which is included as a free download version.


Use the iXm Uplink App to speed up your editing process by using its functions to archive, edit and upload your audio files wherever you need them and right on location. There is no need to add anything to the pouch to be recording ready.
