Testimonials

SU-011
“I used them as a cardioid stereo pair on different ensembles and shot them out against my two favorite Neumann pairs KM 54 and KM 84. The good news is, there is no winner!…Very open, beautiful stereo image, great frequency response, very natural, … They are probably the only small diaphragm mics around that can keep up with KM54 and 84…Really good!”
SU-017
“It blew me away. Had it on a singer and as a center mic on a piano in an MS situation. Compared it to U67 and 47. The 47 is pretty different which was to be expected because of its capsule and the way it is built.
But the 67 – brought to the same level – is very, very similar. What a great mic!”

– Tobias Lehmann
3 time Grammy Award winning Producer/Engineer
Teldex Studios, Berlin

“First off I gotta say – it sounds really great man.. I am very impressed. To help my test I put it [the SU-017] up against my best tube U47 – which is my all time favourite mic.. not just U47s in general I mean this exact one.. I own a ton of great mics and this particular 47 is the one I use whenever possible.. it’s my preferred vocal mic. It’s what I reach for.. tried and tested. What was crazy was just how close sounding your mic was to the best mic in the world..!! I mean I could hear a slight tonal difference, but it was really so close I was switching back and forth blind and you could hardly hear the difference. The build quality is also very impressive.. It’s solid and looks nice. I think you have made something special here..! I would definitely say that I would use this mic over many others in practical use..”

– Nigel Godrich (Grammy Award winning producer of Radiohead, Paul McCartney and Beck)

“I tried a mic shootout between five top-end mics, vintage and new. The Soyuz [SU-017] came out on top; it is lush and big,warm, yet also has a wonderful presence that is in no way harsh. A winner!”

– Rik Simpson | Grammy winning producer/engineer, Coldplay

“The Soyuz SU-017 was impressive right out of the gate. It has all the “holy grail” richness, silkiness and air, but I was amazed to hear it never get harsh or strident regardless of who or what I put in front of it. So, I bought one. Since then, it’s become my #1 vocal mic for sure. I try it on everthing and it usually wins.”

– Justin Meldal-Johnsen Producer of M83, Paramore, Tegan and Sara

“A marriage of East and West this stunning new mic from Russian makers Soyuz sounds just as classy as it looks” “The SU-017 looks fabulous and has a sound quality to match. By any standards, this is a really lovely microphone. It is constructed to a very good standard and the craftsmanship is evident throughout”

– Hugh Robjohns | Sound On Sound, May 2015

 

“Soyuz is on a roll and has fast tracked itself to the top of the microphone arms race”

– Paul Vnuk Jr. | Recording Magazine

“It [the SU-017] is an exceptional mic. Very open and natural top end. Not overly hyped and harsh.”

– Joe Chiccarelli | Producer (The Strokes, Morrissey, My Morning Jacket, Jason Mraz)

“After 25 years, my vintage Telefunken U47 has been pushed to the back of the mic closet. The Soyuz SU-017 is now my first choice for vocals, acoustic guitar or any other musical priority”

– Sylvia Massy | Producer/engineer (Prince, Johnny Cash, Tool)
