Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
We get asked a lot of questions on our social media pages and we felt it was important to answer the more popular questions here.
Is the new Deity S-Mic 2 the same as the Aputure Deity Shotgun?
No. Technically the Aputure Deity Shotgun should be called the S-Mic 1 but when it came out no one knew what a S-Mic was or even that the model would even be the first version. The S-Mic 2 uses the same housing as the Aputure Deity shotgun but the circuit board and the microphone capsule have both been upgraded to sound much better. Learn more about the new S-Mic 2 HERE.
Why is the front of the S-Mic 2 cut at a diagonal and not flat like other microphones?
It makes the microphone fast like a race car. Really it is cut that way just for looks, you have to cut the metal one way or another and we choose a pointy diagonal design. It also helps make the microphone look cool and makes the other microphones jealous.
Where is Deity Microphones based?
We are based in Hollywood California, mere blocks away from some of the biggest movie studios.
Do you have customer service?
Of course! We have multiple ways of helping you with your needs. One of the best ways to get help is hit us up in our Facebook User Group HERE. Or you could email us HERE.
Do you guys really make your own microphones?
Yes, in fact our desks are often covered in doodles and designs for our next products. Maybe one day we’ll publish a few of our early drawings of the S-Mic 2 and V-Mic D3 Pro.
Does Pineapple belong on Pizza?
Are you planning to design more microphones like the S-Mic 2?
Of course. We evidently want to come out with a full line up of microphones that can be used throughout the TV / Filmmaking process. We also want to branch out and make microphones for podcasters, musicians and digital content creators. It just is a matter of time.
