CardioidSE Electronics H 3500

Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The H3500 was a large-diaphragm FET condenser, described by one engineer as the “child” of the Neumann TLM103 and U-47. It was announced in late 2003, and discontinued sometime in 2005.

sE Electronics H3500 and shockmountThe H3500 shipped with an elastic shockmount in an aluminum flightcase (photo at right courtesy Janne Lummaa).

The mic used a transformer-coupled output, and a 27mm gold-sputtered diaphragm made of 6-micron Mylar. Little else is known about this microphone.

I’ve done side by side comparisons with the SE 3500 and Neumann TLM103, and found to have a mic which sounds as crisp and clean but possibily a warmer low end for a fraction of the cost.

The SE Electronics H 3500 is also known as: 3500, H3500.

The mic was released in 2003.
