TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik, industry leader in the meticulous reproduction of the masterpiece microphones of the past and the introduction of new classics, has been nominated in both categories of this years Technical Excellence and Creativity (TEC) Awards.

For stage and studio use, the M80 dynamic cardioid mic offers exceptional performance in a rugged package with superior feedback rejection, detailed/balanced frequency response, a smooth present sound with reduced proximity effect. Excellent for vocals, electric guitars, drums, etc., the M80 sets a new standard for live performance microphones.

Originally designed in 1958, the TELEFUNKEN U-48 is a faithful recreation of the microphone that recorded the


of the Beatles vocals at Abbey Road Studios. Featuring a TELEFUNKEN VF-14k tube and faithful recreation of the original M-7 capsule the U-48 sounds like no other microphone in it’s class.

Beginning with this year’s 25th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards, voting will be expanded to include members of the Audio Engineering Society (AES), the Producers/Engineers Wing of the Recording Academy, SPARS, the Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) and other professional organizations to be announced.
