Telefunken M80 BLACK is a handheld dynamic stage vocal microphone (supercardioid) with a black finish.
With a wide frequency response, “condenser-like” performance, and high SPL capabilities (135 dB), M80 can grab the full range of any sound source – making it a first choice for many applications including lead vocals and snare drum.
This black version has a rugged black powder coat body and is built for the high demands of a touring vocal mic. Intelligent internal construction offers low handling noise.
Here’s what Telefunken has to say:
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.”
