The Rycote HC-15 is a hypercardioid short shotgun microphone designed for a wide range of applications in cinema, TV, ENG, live broadcast, sound design, studio and field recording.
The Nano Shield offers an enhanced level of wind protection paired with improved acoustic transparency. The kits are smaller and lighter than Rycote's modular windshield kits and the redesigned mounting options are more versatile with better handling noise reduction.
The HC-15 combines a moderately directional polar pattern with extremely low self-noise. This provides some level of off-axis rejection and isolation with a precise sound quality to match, making the HC-15 a great all around mic for many recording environments.
The preamp is made from non-corrosive machined brass with low impedance to ensure best possible and longest lasting RF shielding, while the capsule / interference tube are made from lightweight machined aluminum.
The HC-15 is weight balanced to help keep the center of gravity further back for improved handling when using Rycote Lyre shock mounts and slip-on wind protection.
