    This is Michael Joly writing. Read on and find out if a new, MJE-v250 mod'd mic is right for you. Then either place an order or click "contact me" and send me your questions.

    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.

    "VintageVoiced" 6 micron diaphragm MJE-K47 Capsule Upgrade -

    Classic sound is within reach. The "VintageVoiced" 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 "VintageVoiced" 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.


    Michael Joly Engineering Modified v250 with MJE-K47 Capsule (red) vs. U 87 (black)

    Notice less peaked, smoother and more extended top end in the MJE-v250 compared to the U 87.

    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.
