The Eden is the pinnacle of Lauten Audio’s microphone designs -- three distinct tube microphones packed into a single, hand-finished brass enclosure and topped with a nickel-plated crown. This custom-crafted work of art is equipped with Lauten Audio’s exclusive 38mm capsule, Multi-voicing® circuitry and harmonic sound shaping for an unparalleled breadth of timbres that makes picking the perfect microphone as easy as flipping a switch. From smoky and warm to modern and open, the Eden offers a vast expanse of effortlessly accessible sonic possibilities unlike any other microphone.

CUSTOM-CRAFTED 38MM CAPSULE

The capsule of a microphone captures music’s most meaningful moments and converts them into electricity with relentlessly unforgiving results. Our precision-crafted 38mm capsule is one of the largest in the world -- a one of a kind super-transducer tuned by hand to capture the spirit, soul and wonder of a performance with unprecedented authenticity and realism.

PREMIUM COMPONENTS

AN ELEGANT, FLEXIBLE, AND MIX-READY SOUND THAT RIVALS HISTORY'S MOST COVETED TUBE MICROPHONES

In addition to the warmth and color derived from an aged EF806 tube, the Eden is also equipped with a custom wound, US-made output transformer that puts the finishing touches on every sound that passes through its copper windings.

Lauten Audio Eden Sound Shaping

OFF

Allows the full frequency spectrum of a sound to be passed directly to the Multi-Voicing circuitry for maximum density and harmonic saturation.

Lauten Audio Eden Sound Shaping

SOFT

Gently reduces murkiness and any overbearing low frequencies. This is powerful when used with the Gentle selection to attain a truly vintage microphone experience.

Lauten Audio Eden Sound Shaping

HARD

Shifts the timbre of the microphone towards the mid-range, adding focus, accentuation and articulation and is ideal for use with the Forward selection for modern pop and R&B vocals.
