At NAMM 2017 American Audio is introducing a new range of vocal microphones that have been designed to offer an unrivaled package of affordability, reliability, and audio quality. The entry level mic is the VPS-20, a low-cost general purpose Cardioid mic. Next in line is the VPS-60, a Supercardioid stage microphone that offers minimum handling noise and maximum sound quality. Finally, at the top of the new microphone range, is the VPS-80, a mic ideal for mobile entertainers.

All three new microphone models are supplied, as standard, with a 15-foot cable and stand clip, while the VPS-60 and VPS-80 models also include a storage bag.

Another new product released at NAMM 2017 is the American Audio WU-419V wireless mic package. Featuring four UHF microphones and a four-channel 1U rack mount receiver, the system offers fantastic value making it ideal for mobile DJs running karaoke or offering mics for wedding speeches. The set comes with four interchangeable coloured rings, which can be used to easily identify which mic is currently in use, and the receiver offers individual level controls and dedicated XLR output sockets for each channel. Offering excellent audio quality, a wireless range of up to 90M (line of sight) and a microphone battery life of 6-10 hours, the WU-419V is a versatile tool that is perfect for any situation that requires multiple wireless vocal mics.

Finally, American Audio is extending its range with two new pairs of high-quality headphones at NAMM 2017. The BL-40 and BL-60 models both feature 40mm drivers generating a frequency response of 10Hz-22KHz for full, rich and loud music reproduction.
