Blue Microphones has announced that the enĚCORE 300 is now shipping. Here's what they say about it :
"The enĚCORE 300 is the flagship condenser performance microphone in the enĚCORE series with its roots in Blue's legendary tuned condenser studio microphones. The enĚCORE 300's Condenser Capsule is hand-selected and tuned for an open, detailed and present sound that is as well-suited to the stage as it is the studio. Blue's engineers matched the capsule to a custom-designed phantom power circuit, which together provide a rapid and powerful sound that is an ideal match for powerful vocals. The enĚCORE 300's unique reinforced chassis design mounts the capsule for optimal performance and isolation from handling noise, while providing vault-like protection for the capsule to ensure years of breathtaking performances.
