Live sound dynamic microphone with the performance of a studio condenser.
The TELEFUNKEN M80 features a wider frequency response and higher SPL capabilities, delivering a condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design. The M80 is 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 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." The M80 also features an American made custom wound impedance matching transformer which is where the magic really takes place.
