Mike Hillier puts two new large-diaphragm condenser microphones from Lewitt Audio to the test in the studio

£135 AND £245

On the surface, these two microphones are very similar. In fact, were it not for our LCT 240 Pro coming in a very stylish white finish, it would be near impossible to tell the two apart. Both mics are built into the same body, with no additional switches or features – unlike some of the more advanced mics in the Lewitt stable. However, look a little closer and the differences between the two mics start to reveal themselves.

Looking through the grille on the two mics reveals a larger, one-inch capsule in the LCT 440 Pure, compared to the 0.67 inch capsule in the LCT 240 Pro, and while the accessories in each box also differ slightly, it’s this difference in the capsule that really sets the two mics apart.
