Experience how the detail and resolution of a Brauner make your performance stand out in the mix. Your recordings do not lose any of their quality during post-production as might happen with lesser microphones due to artifacts and lack of sonic detail. Following our product philosophy, the Valvet X with its charming tonal character is the counterpart to the more natural-sounding Valvet.

From a technical point of view, Brauner Microphones go to the full extent of what is physically possible in order to achieve unparalleled results. With an equivalent noise of 9 dBA, the Valvet X ranks among the best tube microphones available on the market today. Needless to say, we do not use any filters to achieve such excellent technical specifications, as filters would – while reducing the noise – also have an adverse effect on the sound quality. Additionally, our microphones have a very high sensitivity allowing the perfect adjustment of your preamps‘ recording level. Thus annoying noise is eliminated. What‘s left is pure sound!

To reach this high level of perfection only the best components are carefully selected, assembled and calibrated to become these wonderful works of art and sound. Even though this is a time-consuming and costly process, it ensures the quality of our microphones in a way an industrial mass production could never do. As our goal is to offer the best microphones money can buy, we will not make any compromises for the sake of our products‘ quality. Thus a Brauner microphone is not only a professional and reliable tool for your daily work but also a lifetime investment.
