Featuring a wider frequency response and higher-than-normal SPL capabilities, the TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik M80 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 adds low end clarity for vocals, while still providing strength, authority, and an "open, airy" character without adding danger of upper midrange feedback or "honk."

The M80 also features a custom wound impedance matching transformer, which is where the magic really takes place. When coupled with its proprietary capsule assembly, the results have been quite simply--sublime!

The M80 system comes packaged with a mic clip and leather-carrying bag for quick and safe transport from gig to gig.
