Cocoon & Martian Mics
iCon Pro Audio has debuted its Cocoon and Martian microphones. The Cocoon mic boasts an eye-catching design and incorporates a true electrostatic Golden Drop transducer within its space-age-looking capsule architecture. A sputtering technique, in which a precisely engineered pattern of golden dots is distributed, lets Cocoon’s 33-millimeter (active) diameter diaphragm move with laser-sharp precision for increased intelligibility while reducing any coloration or distortion. Martian, pictured, features an inclosed shock-mounted capsule with an electrostatic Golden Drop transducer made of pure 999 gold, allowing the 26-millimeter diameter diaphragm to move more quickly for rich detail and transparency.
