  • Product Description

    A must have for the ribbon mic lover, the beyerdynamic Dynamic M 160's unique hypercardioid pattern sets it apart from Coles and Royer microphones.  Great on overheads, guitars, room mics or vocals when wanting superior background noise rejection.  This was a favorite of Jimi Hendrix as a guitar mic.

    The amazing drum sound on Led Zeppelin's "When The Levee Breaks" was achieved with just a pair of M 160's placed at the top of a tall staircase with the drums below.

    The M 160 features a hypercardioid polar pattern with a noise attenuation of 25 dB at 110°, the M 160 is an outstanding microphone which is very effective for all types of remote and in-studio voice reproduction.  In the recording studio, the M 160 is recommended for miking string instruments such as violins, violas, cellos and for pianos, saxophones as well as for hi-hat and toms.  The non-glare black surface of the M 160 and its small dimensions allow the unobtrusive use in TV or film studios. In conjunction with the M 130 dynamic double ribbon microphone the M 160 is ideal for stereo recordings in MS technique.
