MXL Microphones Announces New Miniature USB Conferencing Mic

MXL’s latest AC-44 USB Conferencing Microphone offers crystal clear speech intelligibility in a compact design for applications in telemedicine, call centers, robotics and other specialty OEM applications.

TORRANCE, CA, MAY 22, 2019 – MXL Microphones, a leading manufacturer of consumer and professional audio products for the recording, broadcast, post, production and live sound markets,  announces the latest addition to its popular line of USB conferencing microphones, the MXL AC-44 USB Conferencing Microphone, at the 2019 InfoComm Show (Booth 3725). With a compact footprint measuring only 2.5x3 inches and 1 inch tall, the AC-44 is an ideal solution for any limited space application. It can easily be affixed to medical carts for telemedicine, placed in robotics for receiving voice commands, used in huddle rooms for Pro AV Web conferencing and incorporated into OEM applications for pristine audio clarity.

The AC-44 uses MXL’s signature three-capsule boundary design to create a small microphone with a wide pickup arc. For telemedicine, the AC-44 attaches easily to medical carts, allowing patients to communicate confidently with doctors who can then clearly understand the symptoms described. As voice-activated commands become more prevalent in electronics, such as in robotics and more advanced OEM applications, the AC-44 provides an ideal solution for capturing clear speech in a confined space.

The AC-44 has excellent sound rejection from the back, so other sound sources behind the microphone are not picked up. It is powered by simple USB-C connection, making it compatible with any computer without having to download any drivers — making the AC-44 a true plug-and-play microphone solution. There is an additional 3.5mm auxiliary output on the AC-44 for increased compatibility for OEM applications.

Director of MXL, Scott Krueckeberg, states, “We are excited to announce the latest addition to our line of popular USB conferencing microphones, the AC-44. It utilizes the latest microphone technology in a tiny form factor, allowing us to be a solutions partner for telemedicine mobile carts, Pro AV and UCC Web conferencing rooms, and a number of exciting new applications in robotics technology.”

The AC-44 is designed with a rugged, all-metal frame and durable metal grill to ensure it can withstand the rigors of daily use in busy industrial environments. The MXL AC-44 is available in three different colors: white, black and cobalt blue, with the ability to offer custom colors and capsule configurations for special applications.

MXL will present the new AC-44 USB Conferencing Microphone at the upcoming InfoComm 2019 show, Booth #3725, in Orlando, Florida. For more information, visit
