Individuality can be both a help and a hindrance in the audio equipment world. Maybe thats why so many manufacturers opt to play it safe. But not Latvias Violet Designs. The last we heard, theyd designed an ear-shaped capsule. But even from a visual perspective, their products stand out from the crowd. The latest mic to come our way is the Amethyst, and the review unit is the standard version (a vintage capsule option is also available).
