Good microphone for live or ambiance recordings!
unifaun 18.02.2014
I have bought this microphone - which comes with a 5 m cable, a clamp and a wind -shield - for recording live concerts, nature sounds and interviews. The quality is good, quite better than most smartphone microphones and it's stereo. It also offeres a low cut switch for reducing ambience noise.

There are two cable end with xlr male connection, so you can directly plug it in an audio interface or a mixing desk. A

If you want to use it without phantom power from an external device you have to put in batteries.

Connected to an y-shaped adapter cable you can even use it as a stereo mic with a camera oder smartphone.

I recorded teh jubille concert of a gospel choir recently and I was stunned about the sound quality.

Don't get me wrong:

of course you can't compare this microphone to hi end equipment but it delivers a sufficient good stereo sound quality at a budget price.

I can really recommend this!

Powerful Contender for Stereo Microphones
Daniel C 22.04.2017
I originally purchased this for use as an overhead location-audio source for film work, however it's such a good mic it's seeping into my other work!

Build-wise, it's the same as any other Superlux microphone - built like a tank, and then some. It feels a lot more expensive than it actually is, and that's not a bad thing, as it can take the battering that the outside elements give it. The sound quality is very clear and without distortion, even at the higher SPLs.

It comes with a clip, a wind cover, and a 5 pin XLR to 2 x 3 pin XLR cable. I'd reccommend doing what I did and getting a seperate shock mount (due to the slim body it fits the t.bone SSM 4 very well), and invest in a better wind sheild - I used my BOYA Furry windscreen from my Tascam DR-40 with it no problems. I cannot vouch for the cable quality as I used my own custom cables due to required length.

Overall, the E523/D is what I've come to expect from Superlux microphones - good quality sound at an affordable price, and built like a tank. Worth every penny.

Why I gave it 4 Stars
Pat_Hegarty_Films 21.04.2021
Pros:Great build. All metal body. Optional Battery power (aa x 1). High output and very clear natural sound. My main use is for Foley / ambience and field recording. Tests I've done to date were very satisfactory.The mic could easily work as dialogue in film in my opinion.
Cons:(Not many really) Wind shield is useless, would have liked padded case as other companies supply, Best used on stand or blimp as it is prone to handling noise. -10 or -20 db pad would be nice. I would strongly recommend this stereo mic.
