Vintage Sound - Modern Technology
Though the M 150 Tube is based on Neumann's classic M 50, the similarities between the two microphones end with their wonderful, warm sound. In terms of design, the M 150 Tube is thoroughly modern. Utilizing a unique 12mm pressure omni capsule mounted in a 40mm sphere, the M 150 Tube has a unique polar pickup, unparalleled transient response, and a low noise floor of 15 dBa. The membrane and capsule are constructed entirely of Titanium. The dynamic range of the M 150 Tube is 119 dB, allowing reproduction of the full musical expression, without restraint. With its low self noise, more gain can be used without risk of adding noise to the final product. Still, the M 150 Tube's rich, expansive sound - ideal for orchestral and small acoustic ensemble recording, in addition to capturing full-bodied vocals - might fool you into thinking you're hearing a classic vintage microphone at work.
