Michael Joly Engineering v250 with MJE-K47 Capsule and "MJ" Badge
Hi folks, we sold out of the MJE-250 in under 3 minutes during our special $299 blow out sale on January 19, 2018. I have a huge email database and large dedicated following.
However I’ve extended that sale price to my MJE FatBoy which is the same mic with same sound in a slightly different body style:
Order the MJE FatBoy for $299 here.
I still have a few left, they may last through the end of today, Jan 19th Best, Michael

New Single Layer Headbasket -
The MJE modified v250 starts with a new single-layer, angled headbasket. The stock, two-layer cylindrical headbasket is ridden with cloudy standing wave coloration. The new, replacement headbasket increases open area to reduce internal reflections and coloration. You’ll hear clearer, less “boxy” and more detailed sound with more accurate transient response – hallmarks of the classic AKG C12 – itself a single layer headbasket design.
MJE-K47 Capsule Upgrade -
Classic sound is within reach. The MJE-K47 capsule delivers the same response as an actual Neumann K47 capsule. You'll enjoy the classic mid-focused punch of the K47 design with its natural-sounding top. This MJE-K47 capsule has greater sensitivity and output than the stock small diaphragm capsule installed in the v250 and that means you'll hear better-than-stock signal to performance.
Premium Electronics Upgrades -
The circuit used in the v250 is a close approximation of a classic Schoeps transformerless design. However, the manufacturer used inexpensive poor-sounding, under-sized capacitors to save on parts costs. Michael Joly Engineering attacks these compromises by substituting the field proven MJE Premium Electronics upgrade. These component and topology upgrades improve bass response and reduce mid-to-high frequency distortion while providing a smoother top end.
