Lovely pair
A D 11.07.2020
Clean and honest sounding with a hint of air. I mostly use these for recording accoustic guitar in an ORTF configuration.

They compare very favourably to much higher priced mics, and I can think of nothing better until you start spending silly money.
Build quality is good, clips are solid, and the little slip case may come in handy for some. Mics are nice and discrete due to thier small size too.

Some may find these lacking some minor features such as pad button, but these can handle serious SPL's so it's not really needed. No changeable capsules is to be expected at this price, but again not essential. The cardoid pattern is by far the most useful for my needs.

These are no-nonsense, great souding mics that are perfectly matched for stereo recordings of full range instruments such as piano, guitar, choirs etc, and would probably make awesome overheads for drums too.

Would buy again. So good that I'm now looking into other Lewitt mics to add to the studio.

Really good mics for drum overheads
Jazz drummer 25.08.2020
I had planed to get the Rode M5 matched pair for my drum overheads as I had tried them out with great result. Then I was told to check out the Lewitt LCT 040 matched pair instead and I'm happy that I did. The Lewitt pair is even better and in fact a incredible value for the money. They really sound good and actually give much better result as overheads for recording than few other much more expensive pairs I have used. I highly recommend this pair and look forward to try them out as well for recording other instruments than drums.

Little friends that will make your life easier, and get you a great sound out of basically anything!
José Lobo 22.01.2021
These bad boys are a product of a noiseless perspective in recording sound, and they absolutely full-fill their job. Besides being light and small, their sound quality, in my opinion, is above all other microphones on this level (compared to the NT5s, the Oktava 012, etc). Although they are extremely sensitive, the noise you get with these is very low when you crank up your pre, and the top end feels like a shelf, even tho it is a little bell. They are bright, in the high end, flat in the mids, and sustain a great amount of bass, for a ridiculously low price. The only downside (which for me hasn't proved to be critical in the professional utility of the tool) is that you don't have any possibility to change the sensitivity (with gain pads) or a low cut like you have in the NT5, or the Oktavas. But if you really need it, I recomend checking out the LCT 140s which use the same capsule as these ones, and have some extra features that will certainly help. I am very happy with this product, and would recommend it to anyone, from beginner studio engineers, to top notch entities!

Amazing mics
pet5ket 16.02.2021
I've tried these guys on so-to-speak just about everything and they have really proven themselves. The violin, acoustic guitar, bass cabs (yes, that's right), vocals, overheads, etc.
Crisp, accurate, fast, small, good looking, cheap and very efficient.
Recommended!

Excellent matched pair
StrikingObligation 16.11.2020
For the price these are absolutely fantastic value. They are a true matched pair, sound wonderfully detailed and not too harsh and they're really small.

The small diaphragm condenser mics are fixed to cardioid pattern, but I'm using them as drum overheads so that's what I want them for. There's no roll off switches or 10db pad, but that's not a deal breaker for me. They do one thing and they do it very well. I upgraded to these from a pair of Behringer C2s and the difference is striking. The highs are very sweet, the whole sound is airy and detailed. Space is a consideration for me as I have a low ceiling and the size of these meant I could get them as high as possible. They're light but don't feel cheap and they certainly don't sound cheap. Would recommend.

The overall sounds is very good. Particularly the mids are awesome when recording steel string guitars. The sound sits well in the mix.

Great little mics
Stajmen 06.09.2022
I've used them as OH on drums, acoustic guitars live and in studio. Great little mics, balanced sound, not harsh at all which happens often with cheaper SDCs like these. I recommended them them to a few drummers for live use, and they are all using them currently.

Awesome stereo pair
ArgusWishbone 03.09.2021
Wow...im amazed how good these sound.They do lack the features of 140 air but they have lower cost so...For those that want to do it in post its not an issue. Also they are soooo light,im very much afraid i will drop them and break them. But, all in all awesome stereo condenser pair

Wonderful
Dinil 07.01.2020
Wonderful mics at a great price. Nothing competes around this range - the only competitors, the RODE M5s, are far too scratchy and harsh in the high end on strings etc to be recommended. These are much better, come in great quality packaging and with a nice carry pouch and solid clips, and are just good all round.
