Stealth was recently launched by British manufacturer Aston Microphones. It is a versatile broadcast quality microphone for studio and stage and said to be the first in the world to have a phantom power auto detect function.
Stealth works in both passive and active modes. This new model of Aston features four switchable voices. It is said to be the world’s first microphone with an auto detect function, making it detect 48V phantom power and automatically switches the mic to active mode. Because of this cool feature, whatever way you intend to use—for live sound or music production in the studio, this cool new mic, it will be a great addition to your sound gadgets.
Additionally, this model also features a function that can activate a built-in Class A mic preamp which dispenses with the need for an external gain lifting device. To add more, Stealth has a Sorbothane internal shock mount system and Aston’s robust build quality.
