The M 150 Tube is a unique small diaphragm condenser microphone for orchestral recordings, based on the legendary Neumann M 50. The M 150 uses a titanium capsule flush mounted in a small sphere to create an omni pattern which becomes directional at higher frequencies. An innovative transformer-less tube circuit ensures a vivid sound with low noise.

Truly Unique – Uniquely True
The M 150 is a unique tube microphone in the tradition of the legendary Neumann M 50 of the 1950s, often quoted as the ultimate microphone for orchestral recording. The M 150 offers the same phenomenal transient response and unique directional characteristic as its ancestor, updated with 21st century technology and improved performance.

Construction
Like its predecessor, the M 150 uses a 12 mm small diaphragm capsule, flush mounted in a 40 mm sphere. The capsule itself is a pressure transducer, but the sphere modifies its omnidirectional pattern to become gradually more directional at higher frequencies. The M 150’s condenser transducer is extraordinary in other respects, too: Its ultra-thin diaphragm is made of titanium, a light yet rigid metal, and spaced only 10 microns from the backplate, also made of titanium. The result is a sound transducer with unparalleled transient response. This delicate capsule is protected by an acoustically open headgrille – shaped just like that of the venerable M 50.

Applications
The M 150 is primarily designed to bring unprecedented detail and realism to orchestral recordings, e.g. of classical pieces and film scores. Due to its unique “directional omni” characteristic, its outstanding transient response, and a gradually rising sensitivity above 1 kHz, the Neumann M 150 is the perfect microphone for DECCA Tree techniques, including extended surround setups.

Features:

  • Ideal for DECCA Tree stereo and surround recordings
  • Modern version of the legendary Neumann M 50
  • Unique all-titanium capsule
  • Extended frequency response and unparalleled transient accuracy
  • Tube circuit with transformer-less output stage
  • Very low self-noise
  • Power supply included

I've owned and used the U87, U89, 69, M49b, Klaus versions of the 49 and numerous others. I had been told not to get this mic because it was very different from the original M50... I bought it anyway and A/B'd them. WOW, it was slightly different in the quietness during "no signal" time. This mic beat the others in my collection that sell for 8-9m! I'm going to sell one of those and get another M150 so I can have a stereo pair... I record Jazz, Symphony, Pop, Metal as well as film score... no foley though, but I believe this mic would work well in that environment also. good recording and make mine tape.
