What's in the box

LCT 440 PURE box contents

"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. Despite its slimmed-down feature set compared to its siblings, it provides the LEWITT sound through and through."

Paul Vnuk Jr., Recording Magazine 

“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."

Paul White, Sound on Sound

"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."

Andi Picker, Guitar Interactive

"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, Future Music Magazine

"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."

Christopher Milnes, VoiceCouncil Magazine
