(El Segundo, California--April 16, 2012) MXL, a leading manufacturer of consumer and professional grade recording microphones today announced the addition of the FR-310 to its line of award winning microphones.

The MXL FR-310 video microphone delivers sound that is as focused as the video. Mount it onto a camcorder or DSLR camera, and it allows the user to cut to tighter, cleaner sound recordings. The FR-310 shuts out sound from the sides and back, with a pickup pattern that targets sound in front of the camera. Three gain settings pull in the right amount of sound in close-up or long shot situations, while a bass roll-off switch removes low-frequency noise. The integrated windscreen helps block wind noise, which aids in keeping the sound in the picture.

“HD video has become a mainstay with today’s artists and promoters. With that in mind, MXL developed the FR-310 in an effort to provide a high quality shotgun microphone that will deliver an accurate reproduction while under a variety of demands and challenges that occur as a result of being mounted to the top of a camera. The FR-310 offers ease of use and connection to a camcorder or DSLR with the included hot shoe mount, which makes the whole experience significantly more user friendly than previous solutions,” stated Jim Mona, National Sales Manager for MXL Microphones. “That convenience, coupled with the 3-position gain switch and high pass filter, provides the A/V pro with a selection of relevant tonal options.”

  • Three-position gain switch
  • Bass roll-off (high-pass filter)
  • Standard hot shoe mount
  • Up to 500 hours per AAA battery
  • Integrated foam widescreen

MSRP $149.95
