A Higher Standard of Handheld Mic!
The Telefunken M81 dynamic microphone continues the legacy of the original M80, providing you with minimal proximity effect, maximum feedback rejection, and exceptional midrange articulation. By pulling back the high-frequency response a bit to flatten out its sound, Telefunken designed the M81 to handle a much broader vocal range than typical handheld dynamic mics. You'll also find it incredibly useful for guitar cabinets, snare drums, brass, and pretty much anything else you can throw at it. Live or in the studio, the Telefunken M81 is a true workhorse microphone.
Telefunken M81 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
Telefunken designed the M81'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 M81 sports an American made, custom wound transfer 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 M81 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 M81 in front of a guitar amp, over a snare drum, or virtually any other instrument that needs a detailed, well-balanced microphone.Telefunken M81 Handheld Dynamic Microphone Features:
