Why choose MELLab microphones?
Because they are designed for our job:
We build our microphones having clear the needs of those who'll use them every day,
because we are the first ones to use them every day, demanding unblemished performance
and absolute reliability.
Because they have unique characteristics:
Our microphones model MYc-3 are the only ones in the world (till now ...) to have the
removable capsule and to host a colored ring for immediate identification.
The CEL-4 model is produced in two versions to give the best with iOS or Android systems
overcoming problems of distortion and noise. And something else is coming ...
Finally, the TX-3 microphone does not find competitors on the market. It is the first
measurement microphone specifically designed for wireless systems, but it is also a super-
versatile transducer. With appropriate interfaces it can be used in a multitude of conditions
But above all for their technical characteristics:
Our microphones set new standards in their price range.
The pre-polarized capsule that equips all our microphones has been chosen (laboriously)
among many brands and models:
Frequency response 10-10kHz +/- 1dB; 10-20kHz +/- 2dB; (more stringent than IEC class
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) at 140dB SPL <= 3%
Noise <= 23dBA SPL eq.
It has a diameter of less than 6 mm, a thermal coefficient of +0.035 dB / ° C and a working
range of -10 ° C to +50 ° C.
The constructive quality, stability and overall performance achieved by these electret
capsules with polymeric diaphragm satisfied us completely, convincing us that the most
expensive metal diaphragm option was now justified only for laboratory or reference use.
A microphone with these features deserved a solid, elegant and compact dress. All our
models are made of AISI 316 "naval" steel and identified by a deep laser engraving.
They have good connectors and electronics optimized for the interfaces for which they are
The capsule size allowed us to make microphones with an acoustic port of 7 mm diameter,
complying with the ¼ " standard. This "geometric" solution guarantees excellent
omnidirectionality, minimum disturbance of the sound field, maximum operability in free /
diffused / pressure fields and full compatibility with standard couplers, calibrators and
All microphones are protected by an aluminum waterproof case and are supplied with their
own correction file and calibration chart.
All this at an unbelievable price.
A final note. We have chosen not to use complex cardboard and plastic packaging, nor
boxes of precious wood or other aesthetic trappings. We consider them needless, indeed,
harmful. They raise costs and unnecessarily impact an already mistreated environment. This
strategy, the craft method and the desire for direct contact with our customers, maybe will
let us sell less microphones but wants to be our small contribution to the beautiful planet that
hosts us and that we treat so badly.
