Milab announces the VIP-60
« on: December 08, 2021, 08:06:24 AM »
Hey guys! Today is a big day. The VIP-60 is the most significant product release for Milab in at least 15 years. I hope it's okay that I post some information here.

------

Introducing the Milab VIP-60!

37 years after the introduction of its predecessor, the VIP-60 has been upgraded with a new rectangular capsule and optimized circuitry to bring the sound of the classic VIP-50 into the 21st century.

The VIP-60 is the result of a multi-year R&D project where the goal was to reinvigorate what is arguably the most iconic Milab model ever produced, the VIP-50. The process included an 18-month testing period with feedback from a number of highly skilled sound engineers in Europe and the US. The result is a microphone which is technically superior to its predecessor – the most notable difference being the significant reduction in self-noise - but users of the VIP-50 will still recognize the characteristic Milab sound with its ribbon-like warmth and sparkly highs.

The VIP-60 offers five different polar patterns and a selection of roll-off filters and pads. The microphone is delivered in a waterproof SKB 3i case together with a Rycote USM shockmount and an individual frequency chart. First deliveries are expected in January 2022.
