Reviews

Recording Magazine 

“The LCT 440 PURE does have a sound to it that is forward, open, and clear, but with a subtle richness to keep it out of the strident uber-bright realm. Given that, there is no place or source where I would be hesitant to use the LCT 440 PURE." Paul Vnuk Jr., Recording Magazine

Sound on Sound

“Speech sounds clear and very ‘present’ but without being harsh, while the low end remains solid, making this a good choice of vocal mic for those singers who need a little help with their clarity. Acoustic guitar also comes over as well balanced and with good articulation, suggesting that it would make a good choice for a range of acoustic instruments wherever there’s a need to retain good definition.”

Guitar Interactive

“The top end is bright enough to sparkle, and the off-axis response is smooth enough that turning the mic a few degrees gives a more 'vintage" sound without having to resort to EQ. [...] The LCT 440 PURE is a workhorse mic with a look and feel, and most importantly, a sound that defies its price.”

“The LCT 440 PURE sounds great and responds very well to a wide range of sources without clouding or over emphasizing areas of the frequency spectrum.”

Robbie Stamp

“To be completely honest, I think it sounds absolutely phenomenal. It’s definitely the best sub $300 mic I’ve ever heard, and it’s done a brilliant job on everything I’ve tested it on.”

High-end specifications

Nothing limits your performance.

The LCT 440 PURE uses the same high-end components, capsule and circuit design as our prestige models. It features a very low self-noise value of only 7 dB (A) and handles ear-shattering sound pressure levels of up to 140 dBSPL. This results in an outstanding dynamic range of 133 dB (A).

One thing is for sure; nothing will limit your performance on the technical side.

Cardioid pattern

Put a perfect focus on a single source.

A cardioid polar pattern picks up sound coming from the front of the mic. This makes it perfect to focus on a single instrument or your vocals in your studio. For home recording, a cardioid pattern is well-suited to achieve a fairly clean recording even when there's background noise.
