Sharing is caring!

512 Audio is a new audio brand based in Austin that are dedicated to delivering professional gear built for creators.

The new microphones have been developed by the team from Warm Audio, an award-winning audio company what have developed classic-inspired microphones, preamps, guitar pedals and more

For its initial debut, 512 Audio is introducing five products built to help creators capture speech and vocals with clarity and warmth, making audiences feel as if they're listening in person.

Unlike some of the USB microphones from gaming brands such as HyperX or EPOS, the two 512 Audio mics have a single pic up pattern each, doing one thing good rather than a jack of all trades.

Limelight (£189.99 MSRP) with hyper cardioid pattern

A dynamic vocal XLR mic that delivers exceptional clarity for close-range, talk-focused podcasts, broadcasts or live streams. The combination of a modern circuit and professional dynamic capsule produces smooth, crystal clear audio. Limelight’s hypercardioid pattern creates a hyper-focused pickup field to capture your voice and cut out unwanted ambient noise. The built-in pop shield and switchable, low-frequency filter remove intrusive plosives and low-end rumble for a clean, uncompromised sound. Bring the clear, natural audio of a professional broadcast studio to your home setup.

Skylight (£189.99 MSRP) with fixed cardioid pickup pattern

A large-diaphragm condenser XLR microphone featuring a 34mm gold-plated capsule engineered with premium components and a voice-tailored frequency response to capture the warmth and detail of speech and singing vocals. With a fixed cardioid pickup pattern, Skylight records your voice in front of the mic and reduces ambient room noise. The included metal mesh pop filter and low-profile shock mount eliminate unwanted plosives and low-end rumble delivering a clean, natural sound for podcasts, live streams or vocal recordings. Capture the richness of your voice with detailed warmth and true studio sound, without the studio.

Setup Essentials – Boom arm, studio headphones & pop filter

To complement the microphones, three accessories have also been launched.

  • 512-BBA Boom Arm (£79.99 MSRP) – an adjustable microphone boom arm with a 360 degree rotation and silent, high-tension spring design for easily achieving stay-in-place mic positioning for podcasting, streaming or recording. 
  • Academy Headphones (£89.99 MSRP) – studio monitor headphones with 45mm dynamic drivers precision-tuned to deliver exceptional clarity when monitoring speech and vocals. With an ergonomic design and superior acoustic seal, hear every nuance of your recordings with clarity and comfort.
  • 512-Pop Professional Microphone Pop Filter (£54.99 MSRP) – a superior metal mesh pop filter to achieve clear, natural speech and vocals. No more post-production hassle or livestream concerns for achieving clean audio.
