Stereo Microphone


High-Quality Stereo Microphone

For serious field recording, the CS-15RS cardioid-type stereo microphone is a great match for Roland’s portable recorders such as the CD-2u, SD-2u, R-26, and R-05. It can be powered by an internal battery, or via the recorder’s Plug In Power jack for mobile convenience. Bundled accessories include a desktop stand, windscreen, 1/4-inch conversion cable, and a handheld grip that doubles as a mic stand mount.

Versatile Performance for Field Recording Applications

Featuring a flat, wide frequency response for accurate, high-quality sound, the CS-15RS brings added flexibility when using your Roland recorder in remote applications. For sound effects recording and audio capture on video shoots, the cardioid pattern provides pinpoint audio pickup, with excellent rejection of off-axis sounds. To record large acoustic instrument ensembles, elevate and center the CS-15RS above the group to capture a wide stereo soundstage.
