Common name: Beyerdynamic MCE 494
Production Status: Discontinued / Vintage
The MCE 494 is a condenser microphone intended for direct connection to notebooks, mobile DAT and MD recorders for interviewing and other applications. The microphone is powered from the microphone input of the connected device. Due to its cardioid polar pattern, the MCE 494 has high-gain-before feedback (PC loudspeaker ) and rejects back-ground sounds such as drive noise. The wide frequency response gives clear and precise voice reproduction with high intelligibility.
The L and R connections on the stereo jack are bridged. Also called EMX 494.
