(Open Box) Low self-noise, large-diaphragm condenser mic.

The LCT 550 is the first and only large-diaphragm studio microphone ever to achieve 0 dB (A) self-noise*. That makes it possible to capture even extremely weak signals with great precision and detail.

The Austrian-developed LCT 550 sets new standards in terms of more than just self-noise. A dynamic range of 140 dB (A) guarantees the best-possible results even in challenging settings. The three pre-attenuation levels (0 dB, -6 dB and -12 dB) increase maximum SPL to as high as 155 dB (A). The LCT 550 also offers a clipping history as well as an auto-attenuation mode that automatically switches to the next level of attenuation if the signal is too strong. For the elimination of structure-borne noise, there are two high-pass filters: 80Hz, 12dB/octave and 160Hz, 6dB/octave.

Manufacturing tolerances have been minimized thanks to highly precise calibration of the capsule and the electronics “ which means that any two microphones from this series, set identically, will always form a matched pair at +/- 0 dB!

  • 0 dB (A) self-noise from electronics and circuitry
  • Superior dynamic range guarantees the best-possible results

      Comments about Lewitt Audio Microphones LCT 550 Large-Diapragm Condenser Microphone:

      I have been able to use a stereo pair of these microphones for the past 6 months. They have quickly become my go to choice for anything I need to record. From drum over heads, to vocals, sax, guitar.... everything sounds great. They have no noise and crystal clear clarity. I highly recommend adding a pair of these to your microphone library.

        Comments about Lewitt Audio Microphones LCT 550 Large-Diapragm Condenser Microphone:

        This is one of the best sounding microphones I've ever heard. It's very transparent, clean with great hi end. The mic captures hi frequencies beautifully. Very bright but never brittle or hyped sounding. Such a versatile microphone and the best part is it is hands down the quietest mic I've ever used. You can crank this thing through outboard gear and the noise floor is still virtually undetectable. Sounds great on pretty much everything. It's my go to vocal mic now after many years of being frustrated with hiss and noise from other mics in a compressed vocal signal. This thing gets out of the way and just lets you get to work. More people need to know about these mics!
