Condenser-like Performance with Dynamic Convenience

Promising condenser-like performance, the Telefunken M80 dynamic microphone lets you set a new standard for high-quality live performances. Unlike the midrange-heavy tone of many popular handheld mics, the M80 employs a low-mass capsule and ultra-thin membrane to capture every nuance of your performance with amazing balance and detail. And you'll get great results anywhere you go thanks to the custom-wound impedance-matching transformer. You don't need an expensive condenser mic to get studio-quality sound on stage - you need the Telefunken M80.

Telefunken M80 Dynamic Handheld Microphone at a Glance:
  • Specially-designed capsule gives the mic a wide, balanced response
  • Remarkably consistent sound no matter what you're plugging into
  • Clear, detailed sound is perfect for vocals or instruments
Specially-designed capsule gives the mic a wide, balanced response

Telefunken designed the M80's head and capsule to reduce the proximity effect created by the supercardioid polar pattern. That means your vocals won't get boomy or indistinct, yet you still get the feedback-fighting characteristics of a directional microphone.

Remarkably consistent sound no matter what you're plugging into

If you're a live performer, you know that it's tough to get a consistent sound every night when you're plugging into a different mixing board each time. Different microphone preamplifiers can operate at different impedance levels, and that affects the sound of your microphone. The Telefunken M80 sports an American made, custom wound transformer that automatically matches impedance, and that means your vocal sound will be consistent no matter what you're plugging into.

Clear, detailed sound is perfect for vocals or instruments

The diaphragm on the Telefunken M80 is super thin, which gives it a fast, un-colored response that captures your sound with incredible detail. Because it's not a midrange-heavy mic like some dynamic mics, it's not just for vocals. You can get great results with the M80 in front of a guitar amp, over a snare drum, or virtually any other instrument that needs a detailed, well-balanced microphone.

Telefunken M80 Dynamic Microphone Features:
  • Dynamic supercardioid microphone vocals, instruments, or percussion
  • Gold finish
  • Wide-ranging 50Hz-18kHz frequency response is perfect for both instruments and vocals
  • Low-mass capsule and diaphragm responds quickly to sound for clear, detailed reproduction
  • Capsule design reduces proximity effect so your sound doesn't become muddy or indistinct
  • Includes microphone clip and carrying bag
Legendary Telefunken sound can be yours with the M80 dynamic microphone!

Marvelous Mic

This mic is AWSOME. When I took it to the studio and my vocal instructor heard it......she was blown away. And the gold finish is definitely a class act....looks professional. She said she might be getting one.....that's how much she was impressed. I love it. And the people at Sweetwater are AWSOME too. I will be a customer for life.Thankyou so much.

Will bring your recordings to a new Gold standard!!!

There really is something about Gold that makes the listener go "WOW!! This isn't one of those low-budget project studio recordings". I have used the silver version of the M80 to varying degrees of success, but it still hasn't given me that "high-budget studio sound" my projects deserve- UNTIL NOW. I found one of these while mining for Gold in the Philippines, and boy did I find a treasure. Solid gold- like the kind of ring I only WISH I could buy my wife. This'll do though, she's the worst.I used this on countless (six) projects of my own in conjunction with the waves "gold" bundle, and my mixes freaking shimmer. Thanks telefunken!
