The CAD C195 is a superior low-noise, electret condenser cardioid microphone designed for professional vocalists and musicians. The CAD C195 provides the performance and features to satisfy today’s most demanding professionals.

The wide and flat frequency response of the CAD C195 provides unsurpassed natural transparent sound quality. The cardioid pickup pattern minimizes annoying feedback (when used close to sound reinforcement speakers and monitors) and reduces the pickup of unwanted off-axis sounds. A transformerless electronic design provides optimum low frequency response and low distortion. An effective internal multistage pop filter minimizes wind and breath noise.

The CAD C195 has a Flex-Form™ hardened steel grille screen that dramatically resists deformation while greatly reducing any risk of adverse performance caused by a bent or dented ball screen. This unique ability to retain its original shape assures that the CAD C195 will maintain its attractive appearance.

The CAD C195 features the CAD exclusive (I.N.R.-3™) Impact Noise Rejection system. Our proprietary rubber shock mount isolates the transducer from the barrel, thus dramatically reducing cable, stand and handling noise. The need for any external shock mounting device is virtually eliminated.

The low-frequency response of the CAD C195 may be enhanced by increasing or decreasing the distance from the sound source. This phenomenon is technically known as “proximity effect”. Nominal or “flat” response is generated at a distance of 24 inches or more. However, as the distance to the sound source decreases, the bass sensitivity increases, providing a solid, robust character.

The CAD C195 is supplied complete with a zippered vinyl protective pouch and a snap-in microphone swivel-mount.
