The C716 features a cardioid version of the large dual-diaphragm
capsule used in Josephson’s C700 series, with a 5 micron evaporated
gold diaphragm. The head grille uses Josephson’s patent-pending
hard metal foam structure welded to the housing tube, instead of wire
mesh or perforated metal. No other structure is needed, so internal
reflections are randomized for clean, detailed sound pickup. The entire
housing, circuit board, capsule and all its internal parts are made by
Josephson in the USA. The microphone features a hard matte black
chrome finish for durability in studio use.
The internal circuitry uses a class-A FET front end with active balanced
transformerless output using discrete large-geometry devices like those
in the Josephson C700 and C617. The internal high voltage linear
supply generates capsule polarization voltage without using any digital
devices or oscillators, for very low noise.
The capsule assembly in the C716 is internally shock mounted so that
the mic may be attached directly to a stand through its rugged yoke
mount, without using any external accessories.
