Telefunken M80 GOLD is a handheld dynamic stage vocal microphone (supercardioid) with a gold-coloured finish for both the body and grille.
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 gold version brings some serious bling, and we can’t get past the thought of Shirley Bassey belting out Goldfinger on stage with an M80 GOLD. While that might never happen, it’s a great mic, built for the high demands of touring and stage use. 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.”
