Audio-Technica announces two new headphones for onstage monitoring. The EP3 model ($139 retail) has an 18 to 18k Hz response and features a gold-plated, right-angle stereo mini-plug with locking collar for a secure connection. The $59 EP1 has a 60 to 12k Hz bandwidth and a standard mini-plug connector. Both feature three sizes of interchangeable flexible earpieces and universal-fit foam tips for a custom fit, increased isolation and comfort. Their ultracompact design makes them ideal for onstage use with M2 and M3 IEM systems.

RØDE M1 Vocal Microphone

Designed for vocal use but equally at home in front of high-SPL sources, the M1 features a solid die-cast body, steel pop filter/grille and a cardioid dynamic capsule. The M1's 75 to 18k Hz frequency response has a slight LF bump to add warmth and a +3dB presence boost peaking around 8 kHz to help vocals cut through the mix. Its cardioid pattern remains uniform at nearly all frequencies for max feedback rejection. Sensitivity is stated as -56dB, ±2dB 1V/Pa (1.6 mV @ 94 dB) at 1 kHz. Retail is $199 with stand clip and protective pouch.
