The ZP8OOG requires no equalizer or de-esser or extra processing applications to cut through a modern mix.

Still remaining A very natural and smooth character.

Adding A full-body presence with focused deep lows that makes every recording sit in the mix.

The ZP8OOg shares the unique behavior with the Sony of a compressed forward sound in the mid frequency zone.

The present upper mid zone contains  pleasing 2e and 3e harmonics and  in contrast the top is more open and airy

yet more natural smooth and pleasing  in this new design.

The lows are articulate and have A spacious  3d dept to them

like A good vintage Telefunken tube would create.

The ZP custom-made capsule has A unique frequency response behavior like A omni setting but operates in cardiode.

In this way it helps preventing the proximity effect to overrule the lower frequencies causing muddiness,

also keeping the unwanted room sound out of the recording .

Creating high end audio quality plus timbre and extreme focus and amazing clarity.

with the advantages of having:  a lower noise floor, No tube maintenance costs, No tube warm up time needed,

No excessive extra cables or big power supply to carry around.
