Essential updates

Published:

Blue Microphones unveiled a raft of updates and enhancements to microphones in its Essentials series at this year’s NAMM show. While each model in the Essentials series is intended to provide a different character, all of the models now boast a 100Hz high-pass filter, a -20dB pad and a new visual design. The updated models have been renamed the Baby Bottle SL, BlueBird SL and Spark SL.

‘We’re excited to take the legacy of Baby Bottle, Bluebird and Spark one step further,’ states John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. ‘The new models were designed to enhance their distinct sounds and give customers greater control and flexibility. Even the newly updated designs were fine-tuned to inspire creativity.’

In addition to the updated mic models, the US manufacturer has also expanded its line of premium headphones with two new models, Ella and Sadie. Intended for studio applications and detailed listening, Ella is described as combining the ‘detailed sound of planar magnetic drivers, with the emotional impact of dynamic headphones’, while Sadie ‘refines the high-fidelity experience manufacturer’s Mo-Fi headphones to transform laptop and portable devise into complete monitoring systems’. Ella is also credited with being the first set of headphones with planar magnetic drivers to feature an on board 250mW ‘audiophile’ amplifier.

Both Ella and Sadie use Blue’s reinvented headband, which features a four-point multi-jointed linkage system with pivoting arm. The earcups are shaped like ears to achieve a superior seal for accurate bass response, improved isolation and reduced sound bleed. Both headphones feature three analogue amp modes – Off, On, and On+. On+ aims to restore the missing low end to vinyl-era music.
