Telefunken M80 Dynamic Supercardioid Microphone

Bring Telefunken sound on stage with this supercardioid dynamic! The M80 delivers high SPL handling and a wide frequency range with fat lows and airy highs.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has created the M80 to give the user a superior alternative to the midrange-laden character of the "industry standard microphone". Featuring a wider frequency response and higher SPL capabilities the M80 delivers condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design, producing a microphone equally suitable for on both the stage and in the studio.

Sonic Characteristic

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 and capsule assembly has been designed to reduce proximity effect to which nets added low end clarity for vocals, while still providing "strength" and "authority" and an "open," "airy" character without adding danger of upper midrange feedback or "honk."

Circuit Design

The M80 features an American made custom wound impedance matching transformer which is where the magic really takes place. When coupled with a proprietary capsule assembly, the results have won hearts and minds in far less time since it's introduction than ever imagined possible.

Construction

Featuring a rugged black powder coat body and head-turning chrome plated headgrille, the M80 is built for the high demands of a touring vocal mic.

Accessories

Each M80 Dynamic microphone ships with a leather zipper bag and M780 mic clip.

"Fantastic Vocal Mic"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I purchased this mic after recording some friends. They each brought their own mic to the recording session and I was blown away at the sound of this particular mic while tuning in one of my friends channels. It is super clear and REALLY covers a wide frequency range. This is a fantastic mic for the money.
