CardioidSontronics STC-80

Cardioid Dynamic Microphone

The Sontronics STC-80 is a handeld dynamic mic designed primarily for use with live vocals.

Sontronics provides a frequency response graph for the STC-80 that indicates an operating range of 15 Hz to 15 kHz, with peaks at 2 kHz and 5 kHz. These presence boosts give the STC-80 a sound that is noticeably brighter than the widely known tone of a Shure SM58, according to multiple reviews.

The STC-80 features ample dampening to prevent plosives when used in live settings:

Play Music, 2009

Rejection of pops on plosive consonants like ‘P’ and ‘B’ seems excellent and would certainly point to extensive pop shielding in the mic’s head basket.

The mic’s output circuit is transformerless.

According to the UK’s Play Music Magazine, the STC-80 is manufactured in Portugal, whereas other Sontronics mics are assembled in China.

The STC-80 ships in an aluminum case and includes a mic clip.

The Sontronics STC-80 is also known as: STC 80, STC80.

The mic was released in 2008.
