H2a-XLR Hydrophone


Please see our upgraded H2d. We are leaving this page active for a limited time for users that want to buy a match for a previously-purchased H2a-XLR. The H2a-XLR may also, with its lower sensitivity, be better for high-amplitude recording.

The H2a-XLR hydrophone is designed to work with any PA system or recording device that offers a balanced, phantom-powered, microphone input. It uses the same low-noise, robust transducer assembly as our H1 hydrophone, but includes a low noise internal buffer amp. Operation is very simple: just connect to your mic preamp, switch on phantom power and use. No additional power supply is required.

The H2a-XLR offers the following advantages:

  • Low cost
  • Low self noise
  • Good sensitivity
  • High dynamic range
  • Works with any common phantom power voltage
  • Robust design handles accidental drops and temperature extremes
  • Compact (4.5mm OD) Low-noise cable with tough urethane jacket
  • Connects directly with pro condenser microphone circuits.
  • High-quality Neutrik gold output connector
  • Compact size and easy hand of cable
  • High specific gravity and streamlined shape keeps hydrophone down in currents
  • 1-year limited warranty
