Condenser-like performance in a durable dynamic mic design.
The Telefunken M 80 microphone is a durable and versatile dynamic mic. Its directional pickup pattern and wide frequency response yield a blend of functionality, isolation, and-most importantly-tone. It is sonically open, requiring little or no EQing to get it to fit into the mix. Minimal proximity effect gives it a smooth, balanced tone that is not too boomy or big.
The M 80 mic combines a low-mass voice coil with a super-thin Mylar membrane and a high-quality step-up output transformer from AMI/TAB-Funkenwerk. Its extremely rugged design allows it to withstand serious abuse, and its black rubberized finish, recessed Telefunken badge, and chromed-head grille give it a classic Telefunken look.
In use, the Telefunken M 80 microphone exhibits superior feedback rejection in a live environment. On vocals, it's clear and controlled, capturing the nuances of a performance with great detail while keeping sibilance and handling noise to a minimum. On drums, the Telefunken M 80 is tight, punchy, and open, with emphasis on the initial attack. Guitars bloom with richness and clarity, and percussion cuts with ease.

I'm a singer songwriter with a fairly deep resonant voice. I find the "industry standard" vocal mic has way too much mid-range for my voice (sounds muddy.) The M80 is rich and warm without sacrificing clarity of the upper range. If the industry standard is bottled beer, this thing is champagne! This is my favorite mic for quieter live settings (coffee house, amplified acoustic groups, etc.) Your vocals will be clean, articulate, and warm. I also use it in the studio for scratch tracks and have been amazed how clean and articulate it is. . . not a condenser but sounds awfully close. This is a premium stage mic with a much more refined sound than what most people recommend for live music. If you are recording at home and can't afford an expensive condenser mic this will get you really close.
