  • Product Description

    The TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik M80 wireless dynamic microphone head has rapidly become a new standard for live performance and stage use. The microphone features a low-mass capsule built with a super thin Mylar membrane to give superior clarity and extended high frequency response (which in many ways is similar to what one might expect from a condenser microphone), in a rugged design meant for daily abuse in touring applications.

    In 2008 a band called Green Day tried the M80 and found they liked the tone of the microphone in various applications, but especially on vocals. The only fly in the ointment was that Green Day isn't a club band, they're an internationally prominent act that regularly sells out arena and stadium venues, which in this day and age means that a wired vocal microphone is out of the question.

    After a bunch of experimentation and some custom machining the design team at TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik was able to successfully modify Green Day's current Shure® wireless mics to feature an M-80 wireless head, complete with TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik head grill, capsule, and output transformer.

    After giving the modified Shure mics a try, more than 40 wireless modifications were ordered by Green Day as they embarked on a world tour. From this success "team TELEFUNKEN" developed a standard modification process for Shure® microphones

    The M80 Wireless Head is now available in two models (each in either chrome or black head grill finish).

    The M80-WH, M80-WHB and M81-WH are designed to mate with Shure ULX2, SLX2, UR2 and PG2 wireless transmitters. In addition, the M80-WH, M80-WHB and M81-WH are also interchangeable with the Lectrosonic and Sony brand wireless transmitters. The M80-WH, M80-WHB and M81-WH do NOT mate with the Shure PGX2.
