Sontronics Hyper (Hypercardioid) Capsule

Our Hyper capsules are designed to add even more flexibility and versatility to our best-selling STC-1 and STC-1S condenser microphones.

Our STC-1 and STC-1S pencil condensers are fitted with cardioid capsules as standard, but these can be easily exchanged for our optional Hyper (hypercardioid), giving you three mics in one (or six mics in two, in the case of the STC-1S stereo pair).

These capsules offer a quick and easy way to expand your mic locker and extend your recording capabilities.


  • Simple to Set-up: Swap out the threaded capsules in seconds
  • Mix and Match: Available in silver or black to match your mics
  • Refined Detail: Capture every nuance from and performance
  • Supreme Flexibility: Extra versatility turns your STC-1 & STC-1S into all-rounders

Hyper in Use

The omnidirectional Omni capsule will completely open up the area of sound that the mic can pick up, allowing you to position the mic higher up or further away from the recording source. It will give you stunning results on ensemble recording and turns the STC-1 into an outstanding overhead or room mic.

The hypercardioid Hyper capsule is ideal when you need a tighter pickup, for example where you need to focus in on one source within a group and reduce spill from other instruments or voices (eg, recording hi-hat within a drumkit or a violin within a quartet).

Ideal Applications

When used with our STC-1 and/or STC-1S pencil condenser microphones, the OMNI capsule is ideal for overhead/room and ensemble recording while the HYPER capsule adds extra definition to solo percussion instruments (eg, hi-hat).
