Teenage Engineering, maker of powerful, intuitive, engaging, and portable creative products, is continuing its proud tradition with one of the smallest professional studio mics ever built, the CM-15 portable studio condenser microphone. Packing a powerful large diaphragm, audiophile-grade A/D converter, and a dual XLR and USB-C output design, the CM-15 is set up to change the game in portable audio for a wide range of applications, from studio and field recording to content creation and podcasting.
Pocket-sized yet potent, the CM-15 features an advanced large-diaphragm, supercardioid condenser capsule that captures exceptional audio quality with rich, transparent, and natural sound. This rare capacity is supported by a high-end ESS Sabre analog-to-digital converter, which preserves high-fidelity sound when recording digitally. Your audio will be clean and clear, easily supporting professional audio productions and field recording scenarios―and with three gain settings, you can capture everything from soft vocals and interview dialog to heavy drums without concern.
Connectivity is versatile as well, providing plenty of options for various recording scenarios. You get analog and digital output options through a USB-C port and a mini-XLR output, which supports 48V phantom power when the internal 10-hour rechargeable battery isn’t sufficient. An extra 3.5mm line output is also available for direct, low-latency headphone monitoring, or sending the signal to outboard equipment, such as a wireless transmitter or portable recorder.
The microphone case is thoughtfully constructed to minimize handling noise and provide excellent durability in the field. Aluminum, stainless steel, and polycarbonate plastic are used in tandem for reliable protection and shock absorption. A silver matte finish is applied to ensure the mic stands out and exudes the stylish, minimalist presence expected of Teenage Engineering products.
