The microphone produces a frequency response of 40 Hz to 18 kHz and can handle a maximum SPL of 136 dB. The HD7 headphones utilize 50mm neodymium drivers to deliver a frequency response of 10 Hz to 30 kHz with a sensitivity of 98 dB SPL. The leather earpads provide comfort for long listening sessions. Alternatively, use the included Eris E3.5 25W studio monitors to hear your mixes through Kevlar woofers and silk dome tweeters.
AudioBox 96 USB 2.0 Audio Recording Interface
The AudioBox 96 from Presonus is a two-channel USB computer audio interface. Designed to be portable, the unit utilizes 24-bit converters that sample at 44.1, 48, 88.1, or 96 kHz. Two high-quality PreSonus microphone preamps with switchable 48V phantom power are also provided, as are combination jacks for 1/4" or XLR inputs, MIDI I/O, and solid drivers. Whilst recording, you can achieve zero-latency monitoring with a knob that allows you to blend signal from the preamp with signal in your DAW, giving you a tailored balance of both sources.
The interface is bundled with the Studio One Artist 3 DAW software for Mac and Windows, and includes the Studio Magic plug-in suite, providing effects, virtual instruments, and third-party loops, software, and instrument sounds. This unit is sturdy enough to be taken on the road, though also finds its home in the studio.
Eris E3.5 3.5" 2-Way 25W Nearfield Monitors (Pair)
The PreSonus Eris E3.5 is a pair of 3.5" 2-way 25W nearfield monitors designed to provide a compact sonic reference system for musicians, producers, and audio engineers in home setups, project studios, and commercial facilities. Each monitor produces a frequency response of 80 Hz to 20 kHz via a 3.5" Kevlar woofer and a 1" silk dome tweeter powered by a 25W class AB amplifier. The monitors can handle 100 dB maximum peak SPL. A rear bass-reflex port provides enhanced low-frequency range.
For inputs, the monitor system accepts balanced 1/4" TRS, unbalanced 3.5mm, and unbalanced RCA inputs. An integrated 2-band EQ allows you to fine tune the monitors to your listening preference. The EQ controls include ±6 dB gain at 100 Hz and ±6 dB at 10 kHz. A front-panel 3.5mm stereo mini-jack is provided for easy headphone monitoring.
Each cabinet uses resonance-suppressing internal bracing to optimize the sound output and the amplifiers include RF interference, output-current limiting, over-temperature, transient, and subsonic protection circuits.
