Audio-Technica Earphones for IEMs

Audio-Technica announces two new headphones for onstage monitoring. The EP3 model ($139 retail) has an 18 to 18k Hz response and features a gold-plated, right-angle stereo mini-plug with locking collar for a secure connection. The $59 EP1 has a 60 to 12k Hz bandwidth and a standard mini-plug connector. Both feature three sizes of interchangeable flexible earpieces and universal-fit foam tips for a custom fit, increased isolation and comfort. Their ultracompact design makes them ideal for onstage use with M2 and M3 IEM systems.

Allen & Heath iLive-T Series

The T Series comprises the iDR-32 (32 mic/line inputs, 16 outs) or iDR-48 (48 mic/line ins and 24 outs) MixRacks with either the iLive-T80 or iLive-T112 mix controller. The mix surfaces boast touchscreen control and add another 8-in/8-out and 16-in/12-out, respectively, providing 40-in/24-out to 64-in/36-out systems with eight stereo FX engines and full dynamic/EQ/delays on all channels and a single Cat-5 cable-linking controller and MixRack.

RØDE M1 Vocal Microphone

Designed for vocal use but equally at home in front of high-SPL sources, the M1 features a solid die-cast body, steel pop filter/grille and a cardioid dynamic capsule. The M1's 75 to 18k Hz frequency response has a slight LF bump to add warmth and a +3dB presence boost peaking around 8 kHz to help vocals cut through the mix. Its cardioid pattern remains uniform at nearly all frequencies for max feedback rejection. Sensitivity is stated as -56dB, ±2dB 1V/Pa (1.6 mV @ 94 dB) at 1 kHz. Retail is $199 with stand clip and protective pouch.
