Most low-cost condenser microphones have a noticeable harsh and bright tone that makes them hard to sit in a mix and can sound fatiguing over time. The Stellar X2 is different in that we carefully tuned its capsule and circuit to produce a sound that is very smooth and easily sits in any mix without the tinny harshness of low-cost condenser microphones.
Furthermore, our custom-made low noise transformerless JFET circuit uses high-quality components such as German capacitors and high tolerance parts. Our K67 style capsule is made from Japanese imported Mylar and is gold sputtered with our proprietary technology. The combination of these features yields a microphone with a high output signal, extremely low distortion, low self-noise, and a very balanced sound.
K67 Style Capsule
Carefully Tuned Sound: Balanced and Neutral frequency response. Unlike most condenser microphones, this microphone does not sound harsh and will not stand out in your mix or sound fatiguing over time.
High-Quality Capsule: Our capsules are made using pure brass and Japanese imported Mylar. They are manufactured with highly accurate machinery to achieve tighter tolerances. Due to their perfected design, our capsules obtain higher sensitivity making them able to reproduce even the most subtle sounds.
Highly Optimized Circuit
Our custom transformerless JFET circuit provides excellent performance with low noise (< 13dBa) and low distortion. High-frequency attenuation is added to remove any harshness commonly associated with the K67 style capsule. Our circuit is made using German WIMA film capacitors and components with tolerances as high as 1%. In addition, the PCB uses gold traces for better conductivity.
High Quality Construction
The body and frame of the Stellar X2 are made from high-grade iron. This gives it added durability and strength. Powder-coated paint is evenly applied and heat-treated to provide it with a smooth and scratch resistant surface.
Frequency Response and Polar Pattern
The graph below shows the frequency chart and the polar pattern of the Stellar X2 microphone. Every microphone will be within 1.5dB of the frequency response as part of our strict quality control process.
