X/Y StereoSuperlux E524D

X/Y Stereo Pencil Condenser Stereo Microphone

The Superlux E524D is an XY stereo microphone, with a pair of small-diaphragm (16mm) Cardioid electret capsules mounted in a fixed XY 90° array.

The mic can be phantom powered (9-48V) or battery powered with single 1.5V AA. According to Superlux, the microphone’s frequency response and max SPL do not change when operating via battery power.

A single switch on the mic body turns on battery power. A blue LED flashes once at startup to indicate that power is present.

The published frequency response graph shows a gradual roloff below 200Hz, and a smooth +5dB presence boost 8.5kHz. The high end rolls off above 13kHz.

The microphone is terminated with 5-pin XLR-M jack. A 5 meter XLR5F to dual-XLR3M cable is provided. The mic also includes a plastic hard mount (p/n HM38), a tripod table stand (DS01), a foam windscreen (S25), and a leather storage pouch for the microphone.

The Superlux E524D is also known as: E 524 D.
