Telefunken Elektroakustik M80 Dynamic Microphone Details
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has created the M80 to give the user a superior alternative to the midrange-laden character of the "industry standard microphone." Featuring a wider frequency response and higher SPL capabilities the Telefunken Elektroakustik M80 Dynamic Microphone delivers condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design, producing a microphone equally suitable for voice, instruments or drums on both stage and in the studio.
Due to its low mass capsule and super thin (yet surprisingly rugged) capsule membrane the M80 presents a wider range of emotion from a live vocal with an intimacy that has been traditionally reserved for studio quality condenser microphones. The head and capsule assembly has been designed to reduce proximity effect to which nets added low end clarity for vocals, while still providing "strength" and "authority" and an "open," "airy" character without adding danger of upper midrange feedback or "honk."
The M80 also features an American made custom wound impedance matching transformer which is where the magic really takes place. When coupled with our proprietary capsule assembly, the results have won hearts and minds in far less time since it's introduction than we ever imagined possible.

What We Think - Telefunken Elektroakustik M80 Review
The Telefunken Elektroakustik M80 is a great mic. It provides a nice boost in the upper mids, for plenty of cut, but does not sacrifice the smooth mids, and full low end. Overall it is a rich sounding mic that is quite versatile. It is clearly a solid mic for vocal (in the studio or on the stage), but it also excels at guitar cab and drums. Put this on floor toms, snare, overheads, and you will be pleasantly surprised and how greatly it performs. A very nice offering from Telefunken, and well worth looking into.
