The Pulsar™ II Matched Pair delivers a boxed set of Pulsar II small-capsule condenser microphones that are within +/-1dB of each other—from 20Hz to 20kHz. Designed in the USA by the creators of the multi-award-winning Sputnik™, the distinctive-sounding Pulsar II is hand assembled in small quantities to insure peak performance. Featuring a solid-brass backplate and other top-quality components, these modern classics breathe new life into stereo miking applications including drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, and room recording.

The redesigned Pulsar™ II small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone takes M-Audio’s pencil condenser technology to an even higher level. Designed in the U.S.A. by veteran engineers and hand-assembled to exacting standards, this precision microphone exhibits quality comparable to that of vintage classics. New features like -10dB pad and 80Hz high-pass filter switches, higher SPL than the original and a redesigned solid-brass backplate deliver smooth, accurate sound in the studio and on stage. The Pulsar II has many applications, including drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, close-miking strings and woodwinds, room miking and more.

M-Audio microphones deliver the same commitment to excellence that recording pros around the world have come to trust with our Studiophile reference monitors, Pro Tools-compatible audio interfaces and more. M-Audio microphones bring new tonal options to the sonic palette of even the most sophisticated mic lockers. Models like the M-Audio Sputnik are turning the heads of top audio engineers and press—including winning Pro Audio Review’s Reviewer’s Pick and Electronic Musician’s prestigious Editors’ Choice Award. If you’re serious about your sound right from the beginning of your recording chain, then you owe it to yourself to give M-Audio microphones a listen.

Singles or Matched Sets
The Pulsar II is available individually or as a matched set with only ±1dB tolerance from the excellent published frequency response curves—which extend from 20Hz to 20kHz. This makes the Pulsar II mics ideal for stereo room miking, stereo overheads and similar applications where balance and imaging is key.

Pulsar II—The New Classic
Designed in the U.S.A. by veteran engineers and hand-assembled to exacting standards, these precision instruments exhibit quality that is regularly compared to that of vintage classics. In fact, many top Los Angeles session engineers have likened the Pulsar II to the Neumann KM84—and its replacement KM184—only with more open top end similar to Schoeps.

Flexible New Features
The Pulsar II can adapt to many recording and live situations. The 12dB/octave high-pass filter reduces low-frequency rumble and the potential for overloading mic preamps with low-frequency signals. The Pulsar II also handles higher SPLs—an overall 2dB boost thanks to a new thermal diaphragm treatment, plus a new 10dB switchable attenuation pad.

Great on pianos, acoustic guitars, cellos... even drums on occasion. These are a magnificently matched set, and their wooden box and T-mic mount make them visually stunning as well. After several false starts on small matched condensers, I've hit gold with the Pulsar IIs. Bravo, M-Audio!

After exhaustive research, I purchased these for drum overhead recording. Amazing. Smooth high end, incredibly eq-able, low distortion. Better than AKG 451's in my opinion.[...]

Wasted my money on this one. Bought it in usa, came back to my country just to find out that there is this huge wind-like noise coming out of both mics. Returning them would be the same as buying another set, due to high shipping costs. These mics were probably exposed to moisture, or worse. I dont know exactly who to blame for that, I just regret deeply buying this product.
