Overview

The Beyerdynamic M 260 microphone is a dynamic ribbon microphone used for vocals and miking instruments at broadcast, recording and film studios. The M 260 mic's flat frequency response and natural, warm ribbon sonic profile make it a highly effective element of the digital recording process. The hypercardioid polar pattern provides an extremely high gain-before-feedback and elimination of lateral noise (maximum at 115 degrees). The M 260 is equipped with a built-in high-pass-filter, which compensates the close miking effect, when the microphone is applied very close to an instrument. The microphone also features a high insensitivity towards magnetic stray fields and extreme temperatures. The rugged grille protects the microphone system against accidental hits and kicks.

M260 great ribbon microphone

By David D

from Sarasota, Florida

I have owned my M260 for about 3 years, I have used extensivley on Electric guitars, Acoustic guitars, Violin, Mandolin, Bongos and Congos, and just wonderful for vocals. This is a very warm and full sounding microphones. I sing a lot of Mowtown/R&B, and this microphones seems to make my voice sound huge. Great microphone while not cheap is a studio standard for many years (because they sound great). I would certainly put this microphone against any Royer or AEA.
