Missed Deliveries

If you are not in to receive the order at the time delivery is attempted, a card will normally be left to notify you of the missed delivery attempt. This will allow you to either telephone the courier company to arrange a re-delivery at a more convenient time or collect it from your local courier depot or Royal Mail sorting office. For security reasons, all items require a signature.

If for any reason the item is returned to us (e.g. incorrect address specified, multiple failed delivery attempts), then we will inform you immediately by email as soon as we receive the item.

Late Deliveries or Dispatch

We are able to ship almost every order in the specified timescale. However, in very rare circumstances there can be an unforeseen delay. If this does happen, we will make it our priority to get your order dispatched from our warehouse as soon as reasonably possible.

There are also rare cases, beyond our control, when the delivery company itself has a problem which causes a delay in transit. In these situations we will do our utmost to liaise with the relevant delivery company to ensure delivery is completed as swiftly as possible.

Consequential Loss for Late Deliveries

If a delivery is late, then we will provide a refund of any delivery fee that we charged you. We do not provide financial compensation to cover consequential losses, e.g. for time taken off work to receive a delivery, or if the item is intended as a gift and you have to purchase the same item from a more expensive retailer.

Description

Lauten Audio LS-308

The LS-308 is a noise rejecting, high-dynamic range microphone to be used as a problem solver in challenging recording situations when isolation is needed but difficult to achieve.

Designed for use in studio, broadcast, and sound reinforcement environments when sources are in very close proximity and isolation of those sources is difficult; for example, a small commentators booth with multiple commentators, or rejecting drums from a guitar amp on a tight stage.

The LS-308 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone featuring exceptional off-axis frequency rejection combined with ultra-high dynamic range. Constructed from high-quality components and outfitted with frequency shaping high and low-cut filters, the LS-308 offers excellent handling capabilities. It includes two different mounting options, a foam windscreen, and a road case.

The LS-308 is a great choice for:

  • When off-axis rejection is important
  • Highly dynamic instruments in noisy environments
  • Close micing drums and guitars both studio and on-stage
  • Close-quarter broadcast booths when off-axis rejection is essential
  • Podcast and Voice-overs when off-axis rejection is essential

Excellent Off-Axis Noise Rejection

The LS-308 offers 270 degrees of side and rear frequency rejection reducing nearby sound by up to 25dB. The rejection is achieved with Lauten Audios’ unique dual, large-diaphragm pressure gradient transducer element in combination with its specially designed circuit.

The LS-308 is intended for use in multi-person close-proximity vocal dialogue, like close-quarter broadcast commentary, or when the rejection of other instruments, crowds, etc., in a live studio, on-stage or sound reinforcement is desired.

The LS-308 does not require pre-attenuation and can handle 135dB+ of SPL. The circuit also allows for an ultra-wide 120db of dynamic range. These features give engineers the ability to capture high dynamic sources, and in noisy environments.

The Independent, multi-stage, high and low-cut filters help engineers balance recordings at the microphone and aid in successfully capturing the source. The 2-stage low-cut aids in reducing low frequency rumble and proximity effect. The 2-stage high-cut helps tame high frequencies.

Unlike any microphone of its kind on the market today, the LS-308 offers exceptional noise rejection and dynamic-range capabilities for recording in challenging environments.

  • Professional noise-rejecting microphone
  • Designed for use in challenging recording situations, where isolation is difficult to achieve
  • Large-diaphragm condenser

  • Internally shock mounted pressure gradient condenser elements
  • Swing-arm mount with 135 degrees of movement (removable)
  • Included threaded hard mount
  • Included foam windscreen for plosive and wind rejection

Independent High and Low-Cut Filters

The fully independent, multi-stage high and low-cut filters help engineers balance recordings at the microphone and aid in successfully capturing the performance reducing the need for mixing.

The 2-stage low-cut aids in reducing low-end rumble, muddiness, and proximity effect.

The 2-stage high-cut helps tame bright instruments and high frequencies.

Included Accessories

Fully accessorized both internally and externally, the LS-308 comes with the following:

  • Internally shock mounted transducer elements to help reduce rumble and handling.
  • Detachable side swing arm mount
  • Hard mount for added mounting versatility
