Stealth Dynamic Microphone

Aston Microphones Stealth Dynamic Microphone

The Aston Microphones Stealth is a revolutionary cardioid microphone suited to broadcast, studio and stage. Including 4x switchable configurations for various recording situations, as well as automatic detection of +48V phantom power, it automatically switches to active mode and, thanks to the integrated, high-quality Class-A microphone pre-amplifier, eliminates the need for external components for level boosting. It can even operate without phantom power. In addition, there is the typical Aston manufacturing quality, as well as a unique vibration absorber system made of Sorbothane.

The main features of the Aston Microphones Stealth include:

  • Dynamic Cardioid Microphone
  • 20Hz-20kHz Frequency Response
  • Transducer: Moving Coil
  • Maximum SPL: 140dB
  • 4x Mic Type Settings
  • Active/Passive Modes
  • Built-in Class A Mic Pre-Amp
  • Weight: 692g

Introducing: Aston Stealth

Summary from SOS magazine March 2019

PROS

  • A well-made and substantial end-fire cardioid dynamic microphone.
  • Four selectable voicing options.
  • Usable as either a conventional passive dynamic mic, or as an active high-output mic.
  • Class-A gain stage, which is activated automatically when phantom power is detected.
  • A lot of mic for the money!

CONS

  • The standmount could be better-designed to make it easier and more reliable to use.

SUMMARY

Like other Aston microphones, the Stealth introduces some useful twists with four selectable voicings and built-in gain stage to boost the output automatically whenever phantom power is present.

ALTERNATIVES

The Stealth’s most obvious competition comes in the form of the Shure SM7B, the Procaster and the RE20, but none of these alternatives can match the versatility of the Aston microphone.

IMPRESSIONS

Aston like to innovate with their mics, and the new Stealth – as the company’s first dynamic mic – is no exception. This new microphone sets a very high bar for sound quality, the build quality is excellent, and the form factor sits well with its intended peers. I like the purple LEDs in active mode too. I’m less enamoured of the standmount arrangement, but perhaps a more traditional cradle mount will be forthcoming. In the meantime, for anyone wanting to use the Stealth in a broadcast or podcast-type application, there are third-party suspension options that would allow a better balance on the traditional adjustable lever-arm desktop stand. Nevertheless, the Stealth’s four selectable tonal options make this mic unusually versatile, and the active mode could prove very useful in some situations.
