NAB Preview: Beyerdynamic Headsets, Dynamic Mics

beyerdynamic DT108 headset

Beyerdynamic is exhibiting a range of products at NAB 2005 (Booth #C10421), including the DT 108 and DT 109 headsets with dynamic microphones, M58 and M99 dynamic microphones, M72 stereo condenser and the M86 II shotgun mic.

The DT 108 single-muff headset is intended for live and studio situations, remote broadcasting and film and TV applications. The headset is designed with one side open to monitor ambient sound, while the protective ear cap on the muff attenuates up to 20 dB of ambient noise. The headset has a frequency response of 30 to 20,000 Hz and can deliver up to 94 dB. The DT 108 Headset features a noise-canceling microphone with a frequency response of 40 to 12,00 Hz and is available in different impedances.

The DT 109, with dual head muffs, is considered a standard headset/microphone combination for live, remote broadcasting, studio, film, TV and language laboratory applications. The headphone transducers feature extended frequency response of 30 – 20,000 Hz, can delivers up to 94 dB of sound and has a frequency response of 40 – 20,000 Hz.

The M 58 Dynamic Microphone is specifically designed for electronic news-gathering (ENG) as well as electronic field production (EFP) in both indoor and outdoor situations. The M 58 has a frequency response of 40 – 20,000 Hz and has a non-reflective Nextel finish, which results in a low profile on camera.

The M 99 Dynamic Microphone, with its hypercardioid polar pattern, can be used in situations ranging from instrument miking to live broadcasting. Using beyerdynamic’s sophisticated TG-X technology, the M 99 features a neodymium magnet system and a mass reduced special Mylar diaphragm to give the microphone powerful reproduction of excellent transient characteristics. The M 99 has a frequency response of 30 – 18,000 Hz.

The MCE 72 Stereo Condenser Microphone is suitable for film, video and interviewing, concert recordings with DAT or MD, and stereo recording in home studio applications.

The MCE 72 offers frequency response of 60 – 20,00 Hz producing uncolored, high-quality recordings. It has two microphone capsules that are mounted at 60 degrees to the microphone axis that achieves an accurate reproduction of the sound source and can handle a maximum sound pressure of 123 dB.

The new MCE 86 II Shotgun Microphone offers an electrostatic transducer element and a hypercardioid/lobe polar pattern. There are two different elastic suspensions available, both suppress footfall sound and vibrations from zoom motors. The size and weight of the MCE 86 II allows it to be used in outdoor applications, as well as in studio environments with fish pole booms, or as a handheld unit.

The frequency response is 50 – 18,00 Hz, and it can handle a sound pressure of 128 dB. The MCE 86 II can be powered from a balanced phantom source or battery powered with an integrated 1.5V battery. It also has an electronic balanced output, allowing for operation with long cables. All battery-powered versions have an ON/OFF switch and battery condition LED.
