    Great microphone. I had the AkG314 and upgraded to this. Huge difference.

    Exceptional microphone for the price!

    I've had the TLM 103 for about two years now and I am very satisfied with it.
    It has extremely low self-noise and is a very clean and clear sounding mic. This mic excels at many applications due to its ability to recreate exactly what it captures without coloring. I definitely would recommend this mic.

    The Day I Tried to Sing the Sun to Sleep with my TLM 103mt

    Realizing the suns rays were so harmful for the world and it being an especially hot day I knew I had to sing the sun a lullaby. The moon would have a few extra hours of being awake, a symptom some call insomnia. My song of choice, Treaturous Waters from the band A Bizarre Liberty. As i set up my main mic of choice the neumann tlm 103, whom I've named Mike, I had no idea if this was the pursuit of spending less on sun lotion or just chasing some kind of dogma. But I had come this far, so I turned the phantom power switch on, armed the record track, and the music began. I then yes thats right folks punched in. I began my soft Baritone intro what a beautiful sound whose warmth replaced the suns. I saw the eyes of Apollo himself get heavy and the fire ball of the sky began to sink into the atlantic ocean. Boiling the water as it sunk. I kept my eyes of this miracle and starred at the beautiful black finish of the Neaumman, The darkness of the Neaumman now shifting to the sky. My melody had sunk the sun and the moon in full bloomed glory came out, my voice taking a sound shape like that of the trumpet to announce to the world the arrival of the king of all that is night. Surrounded by a beautiful darkness, crickets became my orchestra. The owl taking over for where the cowbell left off . All of nature was surrounding this microphone, its capsule a beackon to all that is pure and ageless. Mother natures tears of the years of the human cure "industrialization" dried. She looked from a distant and proud stance. Me and Mike were now in control of all the elements. Clouds left the sky this was a time for clarity not the fog and haze they brought. As I punched out, I looked around and realized this wonderful gadget had a power beyond any we have seen since... thats correct folks sliced bread. The tlm will never leaves my side now, we are a team in the battle of sound and noise and the brain splitting noise is losing the battle. By August 2013, we will have conquered all these inconveniences including nails on the chalkboard. Thats the tale of MIke the tlm 103 if you want to achieve this kind of Sonic Glory look no where beyond this Condenser. As Mike and I say, "with decent vocal and condenser like MIke the tlm 103 you can do anything". Although we must thank our sales engineer and sound guru- The Man, The Myth- Matt Masek for walking us through perfecting this art. He gave us the knowledge for the beaten path we walk, putting the sun to rest to save money on sun lotion so we can get a new guitar amp. (We left out our companion on our journeys Sourtower, a Stratocaster impervious to buzz and hum) but thats a tale for a different cyber campfire gathering.

    Big Mic, Small Budjet?

    I was sceptical of the 103 at first, that is, untill I got it home and plugged it in. Neuman has done it again! Incredible output, no noise floor, great price. This mic really gets the vocals sitting right up front. The artist will really sit up and take notice. One drawback is the absence of a pad or low cut switch but anyone who makes this purchase should have a cecent mic pre with these features already present.
