What's in the box

LCT 140 box content

"The LCT 140 has a bright, detailed and up-front sound. In our experience, most budget electret mics with small capsules tend to have a slightly ringy midrange and a metallic quality in the treble. Although those traits are present with the LCT 140, they’re far less pronounced than usual. The overall tone is fairly natural, with a nicely filled-out midrange."
