Featuring a wider frequency response and higher SPL capabilities the TELEFUNKEN Elekroakustik M80 delivers condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design, producing a microphone equally suitable for voice, instruments or drums on both stage and in the studio.
Due to its low mass capsule and super thin (yet surprisingly rugged) capsule membrane the M80 presents a wider range of emotion from a live vocal with an intimacy that has been traditionally reserved for studio quality condenser microphones.
The head grill and capsule assembly have been designed to reduce proximity effect resulting in added low-end clarity for vocals, while still providing strength and authority with an open airy character. A tight cardioid polar pattern and a frequency response boasting a subtle rise in the high-end result in a microphone that is ideal for live vocal applications.
The TELEFUNKEN M80 also features a custom wound impedance matching transformer which is where the magic really takes place. When coupled with the proprietary capsule assembly, the results have won hearts and minds in far less time since it's introduction than ever imagined possible.
