Ultrasonic Response

While the EM258 is used mainly for receiving audible signals it is not limited to these frequencies. Like the now discontinued Pansonic WM-61A it has a useful ultrasonic response extending up to 95 kHz. We have done some tests and the EM258 performance exceeds that of the Panasonic WM-61A. Graphs to follow.
"The EM258 sound is clear and dynamic with a great sense of detail and a pristine stereo image."  JF, Helsinki, Finland.
