About this product

The SMX-NFC is a weatherproof microphone which can be used with the SM2+ and is designed especially for recording distant night flight calls in the sky whilst attenuating sounds from insects and amphibians. The microphone capsule is mounted near the surface of a flat horizontal plate creating a pressure zone for sounds originating from above the plate. The design delivers flat frequency response up to 11 kHz and 3-6 dB signal gain with a beam angle of 125 degrees.

For best results, the SMX-NFC would be mounted on a rooftop or high on a pole to keep it away from crickets and amphibians at ground level. The microphone is fully weather resistant and the foam under the mesh offers some level of protection from wind noise. However, it is recommended to face the microphone away from the prevailing wind to minimise this.
