The D58 E is a dynamic, hypercardioid, close-talking microphone for talkback and intercom applications. In order to improve speech intelligibility in noisy environments, the D58 E is tuned to a mid-frequency range. Thus it compensates for proximity effect and provides a flat response to near sources.
The D58 E is rugged and lightweight, operating over a wide range of temperatures and humidity. Using a dynamic capsule, the microphone does not require any powering. It has an integral XLR connector for mounting on a gooseneck such as the optional GNS36.
