TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has created the TELEFUNKEN 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 TELEFUNKEN 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 TELEFUNKEN 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 TELEFUNKEN M80 also features an American made custom wound impedance matching transformer which is where the magic really takes place. When coupled with our proprietary capsule assembly, the results have won hearts and minds in far less time since it's introduction than we ever imagined possible. Type: Dynamic Moving Coil
