CN255 Documentation

Wide CardioidMicW CN255

Wide Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The MicW CN255 is a cardioid condenser microphone with attached XLR cable.

The capsule is a half-inch, pre-polarized (electret) nickel-diaphragm design. According to Mic W, it is similar to the capsule used in the discontinued n255, a wide-cardioid pencil condenser.

The frequency response chart indicates a low rolloff below 300Hz and a presence lift beginning at 1kHz, peaking at +5dB at 8kHz.

The CN255 is similar in its physical design to the CN201 omni.

The CN255 is sold individually or in pairs. The CL012 lapel clip is sold separately.
