Earthworks ETHOS XLR Streaming Studio Condenser Microphone

The Sound Of Relaxed Confidence

Earthworks have built a reputation for delivering impact through authentic presence and clarity — and while those attributes alone might make for a compelling broadcast mic — ETHOS pushes further with intimacy and warmth that manages to feel as though it is responding to the charisma of each voice while simultaneously anticipating the needs of engineers.

The Sound of Your Voice 

In audio, our perception of what feels real and natural is incredibly sensitive to resolution in the time domain. In particular, the level of detail present in the initial transient is responsible for much of our sense of content, meaning, and frequency balance. This includes defining attributes like “timbre”, “texture”, and “air”. Earthwork’s blazingly fast technology at the core of ETHOS ensures that every performance sounds like life. 

Cutting Edge Plosive & Wind Noise Protection 

Additionally, ETHOS has a windscreen stack that raises the bar for plosive and wind noise protection. Also, it is easy to clean or to replace and the foam, mesh, and steel combination makes it unlikely to require additional aftermarket augmentation for even the most zealous vocal personalities. 

Minimal Handling Noise 

Furthermore, ETHOS is naturally resistant to handling noise and thumps thanks to internal dampening and robust stainless steel construction. Also, the included Triad-Orbit M2-R ball joint mic adaptor allows precise placement and adjustments. Specifically, it ideally suits a heavy mic arm or stand for optimal results. 

ETHOS Package Includes:

  • 1 ETHOS Microphone with Black Foam Windscreen
  • 1 Triad-Orbit M2-R Mount


Users who purchase an Earthworks ETHOS, ICON-USB, ICON-PRO, or SR117 qualify for a free copy of VEA, an AI audio enhancement software download from iZotope, designed for content creators.

It increases clarity, reduces background noise, and balances levels. You also get RX Elements to remove clicks, pops, and for general audio restoration.

To get both your VEA and RX licenses, simply email [email protected] with your receipt along with your microphone’s serial number.
