Yaesu M-1 Reference Microphones are the ultimate, high-quality, most-innovative desktop microphones and are dedicated to the most discriminating Ham Radio Operators. They feature combined Condenser (Electret) and Dynamic microphone elements.
In celebration of Yaesu's 60th Anniversary, these microphones are also available with special, gold, 60th Anniversary Limited Edition trim (YSU-M-1-ANN-ED).
The Condenser Microphone Element produces greater frequency response and a clear, crisp audio characteristic that's perfect for being heard on crowded bands and in big DX pile-ups. The Dynamic Microphone Element delivers the rich low to mid tonalities, much favored for local QSOs and rag chewing. The response of each microphone element may be adjusted independently using the internal, Nine (9) Band, Graphic Equalizer. Each element has a separate gain control for independent adjustment of output levels. The output of each microphone may be selected separately, or they may be combined to produce the most pleasant tonal quality.
Both the Condenser Element and Dynamic Element in the M-1 utilize the Nine (9) Band Graphic Equalizer centered at (63Hz, 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz, 4 kHz, 8 kHz and 16 kHz). Each element's frequency response is independently adjustable. Two (2) frequency response memories and a "through" (bypass) mode are provided for each element, and are easily switchable by using one-touch buttons on the microphone base.
The supplied TBC (Treble Boost Cowling) enhances the voice response around the important 1 to 1.5 kHz range. Attaching the cowling creates a condensed unique tonal texture that is pleasing for many.
The PTT key uses three Air Cylinder Tubes which incorporate a contactless magnetic switch that ensures long-life and stable, noiseless operation.
