The ASF-1 Soundfish MKII is completely designed and manufactured by Ambient Recording in response to all the requests for a professional-quality, yet affordable hydrophone designed specifically for use with standard audio gear. They exceeded all expectations. The result is an extremely natural sounding, low noise underwater microphone.
Crystal clear, low noise audio from infra- to ultrasound
With the development of the Ambient "Sound Fish", they focused on high audio quality with best handling. Therefore they designed a linear, low distortion microphone preamp offering a linear frequency response from 10Hz - 40kHz.
Works with standard 48V Phantom power
Following the to create an underwater microphone for professional sound recordists, Ambient worked hard to build a hydrophone which can be fed directly from standard 48V Phantom power. Thus, this microphone works right out of the box with all professional audio gear using standard XLR connections. No adapters are required!
Waterproof up to 100m
The ASF-1 is machined out of high-quality, stainless steel (V4A) and can easily withstand the water pressure of 100m depth. Additionally, the cable material (specially formulated NBR, V4A polyurethane) was selected for its long term resistance against seawater corrosion.
Included 10m underwater cable with professional underwater connector
The purchased parts package includes a 10 meter underwater cable with sealed AHS V4a underwater connector. Thus, the AFS-1 can be used right out of the box without additional adapters or cables. Other cable lengths are available on request.
