Additional Information

The low-noise mic preamp, A/D converters, D/A converters and USB digital audio interface are all contained within the mic itself, so no external analog electronics are used. This gives us a direct digital audio connection to the connected device. 

iTestMic2 is equivalent to having a Class 2 test & measurement mic, low-noise matched preamp, A/D converter, DAC, and USB digital audio interface, all combined in one portable device.

uTestMic2 meets ANSI / ISO Type 2 specifications for frequency response, linearity, and directional characteristics.  We do not guarantee that this microphone can meet the strict environmental requirements of Type 2 or Type 1.

See our Microphone Type 1 & 2 Certification page for more information about ANSI and ISO specification compatibility.
