Engineered for Announcer Voice and Music Applications
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik of South Windsor, CT is introducing the M82 dynamic cardioid microphone at InfoCOMM 2014, their debut at the Las Vegas convention. Following the same design approach as TELEFUNKEN’s other popular Dynamic Series microphones, the M82 was created to provide a superior broadcast alternative to familiar large diaphragm dynamic microphones.
Hand-assembled and tested in the company facility in Connecticut, the M82 is a robust dynamic microphone that features a large 35mm diaphragm with superb low frequency capabilities. The M82 is an end-address microphone, meaning that the top portion of the headgrille is pointed at the sound source, and features two separate EQ switches: HIGH BOOST and KICK EQ. These two switches function independently of each other, providing four unique settings. The M82 makes it simple to tailor the microphone’s response to the source.
The HIGH BOOST switch tilts the upper mid-range and high frequencies (starting around 2kHz with a 6dB boost by 10kHz). For a source such as an announcer’s voice, the high boost provides further articulation and airiness in the upper register. Also valuable as a music microphone in addition to broadcast voice, the M82’s KICK EQ switch engages a passive filter that reduces some of the lower mid-range frequencies (centered around 350Hz). The two EQ switches make the M82 equally suited for a multitude of sources such as broadcast voice, percussion, vocals, guitar and bass amplifiers, organ, and brass instruments. For announcers, the M82 offers a clarity and detail unmatched by other industry standard dynamic microphones,
Construction wise, the M82 borrows heavily from the U47 body style by employing a headgrille of similar architecture. Finished in a durable smooth black finish on the headgrille and body, the M82 is rigorously tested to ensure it can handle the daily needs of the broadcast environment.
The TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik M82 is delivered with a stand mount adapter and protective zipper case. An optional elastic suspension mount and broadcast boom arm are available at an additional cost.
