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
  • Standard 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!

Telefunken Great!

This is by far the best dynamic microphone I have ever owned. The clarity is incomparable with any other dynamic microphone I have used in the past.

Great Mic!

I bought this to upgrade my SM58. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! This is a GREAT microphone. I'm not the best vocalist so I need all the help I can get. I couldn't ask for more. It's a bargain price for what you get.


So, I've been using the German 835 and 935 series mics for the last decade and was really wanting to try something new. I picked this out to add to our weekly worship service and from the get-go, it was different. It just felt more girthy and robust. The EQ needed adjustment from the settings used on the previous mic, but once dialed in, it's been a nice rich projection ever since. Very pleased with this mic and hope to enjoy it for years to come.

Worth Every Penny

I had my eye on this mic for about a month and was saving up to buy it. But when I saw a Sweetwater Demo of the mic, for a lower price, pop up I didn't hesitate to buy it right away! Since then I have been loving this mic to pieces. It looks incredibly cool and I have gotten several comments from sound guys, audience members and band members alike on how clearly they can hear my voice now. One sound guy even recognized the mic a a glance and commented how much he liked m80s vs a standard 58. Also the rejection on this thing is unbelievable, I used it to record Vocals while I sang and played acoustic and boy oh boy was I impressed! Little to no bleed from the mic where I usually get a decent amount from my Sm7b. I'm a tenor and I sing backing locals as well a lead so I am singing both low chesty songs and really high falsetto harmonies, this mic really nails it all. I haven't gotten a chance to try it on guitar cabs or drums but I have a feeling I will be equally impressed. I have no gripes with this mic. It's great for both studio and live worth the cost and more.
