Don’t be fooled by the tiny size of TLM102, there’s all of Neumann’s heart and soul locked away in there, giving you a mighty microphone with a smaller-than-expected price tag.

This version of TLM102 includes the Neumann EA4 suspension.

Here’s what we first wrote about TLM102 (without the suspension) when it was first released:

Sweet baby marmalade, this tiny Neumann is the epitomal pocket rocket. Great frequency response, with a lift around 6 kHz, TLM102 is going to sound great on vocals.

With a max SPL handling of 144 dB, it’s also going to do the business on a variety of louder instruments, such as drums, percussion, wind instruments and amps.

Priced to suit any number of broadcasters and home studios, TLM102 is also going to help bring a quality to any voice-over work you’re doing. Very nice indeed.

The capsule has an elastic suspension for the suppression of structure-borne noise. A pop screen integrated into the grille serves to suppress plosives in vocal and speech recording.
