The VT500X eXtreme is the waterproof IPX-8 certificated version of the VT500.


For the most demanding situations.

In a lot of theatre performances, musicals or broadcast productions, water comes in play. This is not only a challenge for the performers but also for the microphones.

Based on the worldwide success of the existing IPX7 certificated waterproof versions VT500WATER and VT500WA Water Adventure Voice Technologies developed the VT500X eXtreme. With some special production steps it is possible to seal the microphones to the point when they can even endure submersion without taking damage.

The VT500X eXtreme provides even more protection against water and is IPX-8 certified (1m under water for 24 hours). Beside of the maximum capsule protection it has a reinforced cable against sweat, cuts and tearing. This microphone is the ideal solution for the toughest outdoor shoots and stage applications. The waterproof designs proof advantageous even when no larger amounts of water are included in the production, as they also protect the electronics from sweat!
