Beyerdynamic is one of few microphone manufacturers worldwide that still produce ribbon microphones. The M 160 dynamic double ribbon mic brings you the sonic characteristics of classic ribbon mics with a modern twist. Thanks to the double-ribbon design, the M 160 has an ultra-fast transient response, which gives you superior detail while maintaining the smooth highs that ribbons are famous for. The M 160 is an outstanding microphone that's very effective for all types of remote and in-studio vocal reproduction. In the recording studio, the M 160 is recommended for miking string instruments such as violins, violas, cellos and for pianos, saxophones as well as for hi-hat and toms. It can effectively handle sound sources from pianissimo to mezzo forte. The non-glare black surface of the M 160 and its small dimensions allow unobtrusive use in TV or film studios.
When used in conjunction with the Beyerdynamic M 130 figure-8, double ribbon mic, the M 160's matched sound and hypercardioid polar pattern (side attenuation of 25dB at 110 degrees) makes it an ideal "mid" mic for recording in stereo with the M-S (Mid-Side) technique.
