NoHype Audio products:
  • Design: Our products are designed for studio and/or stage use by us, or in collaboration with partners. In either case, our products are built to last and designed to offer the best possible performance.
  • Quality: Each unit is partially assembled and individually tested in our Belgian workshop.
  • Affordability: Clever designs, purchasing and packaging yield unbeatable prices. We also try to keep a clean and direct path between the factory and the end user resulting in much lower end user prices than usual.
  • A note on the frequency curves below: We prefer to show 1/6th Octave curves in 1 dB/line resolution rather than 1 Octave, smoothed curves at lower resolution, as they show more information. These are not perfectly accurate curves but better, more telling curves will soon be published. Please keep it in mind when comparing with other mics data.

NOTE: An order is not finalized until shipping costs have been considered: unless "free shipping" is clearly mentioned on the products page, please make sure you've added one shipping option (shown on the right hand of the products page screen) to your Paypal cart. If in doubt please Email us.

Our own NoHype Audio products:

  • NOHYPE AUDIO LRM-2:

    Light Ribbon Microphone. Released in 2015 and based on the LRM1 but upgraded in several ways. Pure Bidirectionnal/Figure-8 Polar Pattern. Sold with soft padded protection bag, also available with Lundahl output transfomer. Shockmount included. Final assembly and testing performed in our workshop in Belgium. Current version, post April 2016: upgraded internal shockmounting and wiring.

    • Differences with the LRM-1:
      • Smaller size
      • Lighter weight
      • More solid, stable and less resonant one piece body
      • Integral (but removable) shockmount
      • Slightly different response, mainly flatter top end and more open low end
      • Current version (Issue 2 > April 2016) offers upgraded internal frame and wiring over prior releases.
    • Lundahl or stock? The Lundahl transformer option is typically chosen for more critical applications like classical recording. For Pop, Rock, Blues, Jazz... the stock transfo is usually preferred for its added midrange colour.
    • FetHead: Please check the Triton Audio Fethead Standard to turn our LRM-2 into an active ribbon mic with 20dB of extra super clean gain.

  • NOHYPE AUDIO STEREO BLUMLEIN KIT:

    Released in 2016, this kit allows the user to mount a pair of LRM-2s in vertical, coincident Blumlein or other stereo configurations including more typical horizontal setups. Note: the kit will not support two LRM-2's in a HORIZONTAL Blumlein config. The kit is designed for vertical Blumlein (or other coincident) use only.

    • Caution: The LRM-1's are too heavy for this kit. The kit is designed for the LRM-2, or similar weight microphones. Heavier microphones will eventually tilt the mic stand and most likely crash down below! The bar can take the weight but your mic stand probably won't.
    • Overview:
      • The kit includes a heavy duty stereo bar, three "knuckles" to mount the bar on a mic stand and to two microphones clamps (or shockmounts) and a coupler to secure two LRM-2 microphones together.
      • No microphones are included in the kit.
      • Thread compatible with US and EU thread clamps, shockmounts and mic stands: the mic clamp/shockmounts are 5/8" and the mic stand thread is 5/8" with an included 3/8" adapter.
    • Specifications:
      • All metal construction
      • Horizontal or Vertical positioning
      • Included 3/8" adapter for EU mic stands
      • 5/8" thread mounts for clamps and shockmounts
      • Stereo bar weight: 485g
      • Coupler weight: 35g
      • 40 cm long
