Swiss microphone maker Myrinx will offer a first glimpse of its new microphone parts in Frankfurt at Prolight + Sound this week. However, the official launch of the new products will take place at Audio Days in Paris, France on 17/18 March.
The company is a spin-off of two other companies - Vovox, well known for its audio cables, and Evosolutions, an innovation specialist.
Co-founder of Myrinx and head of research at Vovox Juerg Vogt, says: "In my opinion there are a few blind spots in the microphone business, some aspects didn't get the attention they deserve. We now want to focus on them and demonstrate that even high-end microphones can be further improved."
Evosolutions owner Regine Schwilch is a biologist known for finding solutions for technical challenges with natural materials, and as result the company has developed microphones that feature wooden housings.
Myrinx microphones have been tested by internationally renowned sound engineers, including Rob Griffin, who has been using Myrinx prototypes for around a year for various recordings with artists such as Wayne Shorter, Julian Lage and Shai Maestro.
