The manufacturer says that its new ETHOS broadcast microphone delivers a sophisticated, warm and natural, but not overly hyped sound. According to Earthworks, the perceived level of detail in voice recordings depends heavily on the resolution in the time domain. They say that they’ve gone to great lengths to design a microphone with a very fast transient response (11.67 microsecond rise time), which is beneficial to the perceived authenticity and realism.

ETHOS is available in two colors. As an alternative to the manufacturer’s signature stainless steel finish, you can order the mic in a more toned-down black finish. The condenser mic with a supercardioid polar pattern is built around a 14 mm diaphragm. It offers a traditional XLR connector and requires phantom power (24-48 V) to operate.

According to Earthworks Audio, ETHOS can handle a peak acoustic input of 145 dB SPL. The self noise of 16 dB SPL (A weighted) yields a signal-to-noise ratio of 78 dB (A weighted). The frequency response is stated as 20 Hz to 30 kHz.

ETHOS is primarily designed for professional broadcasting studios. But the manufacturer says that it works just as well for podcasting and live streaming and even delivers great results in music production. The microphone comes with a windscreen, M2R ball mount and thread adapter.
