Telefunken | USA Introduces New Ela M 80 Dynamic Microphone


Stage & Studio Mic First in New Dynamic Line

Pictured is the new Telefunken | USA M 80 Dynamic Microphone.

Award-winning Telefunken | USA has introduced the new Ela M 80 dynamic cardioid microphone. The extremely rugged M 80 is designed for both stage and studio, performance and recording. Its directional pickup pattern and wide frequency response yield a microphone that provides an ideal blend of functionality, isolation, and a distinctively pleasing tone. The M 80 is sonically open, requiring little or no EQ to fit into a live or recorded mix. Minimal proximity effect gives the microphone a smooth, balanced presence that is neither boomy nor overpowering.

The M 80 combines a low-mass voice coil with an extremely thin Mylar membrane and a high quality step-up output transformer from AMI/TAB-FunkenwerkR. Its extremely rugged design is built to withstand severe performance abuse, while its black rubberized finish, recessed Telefunken badge, and chromed head grill give it the classic Telefunken look.

The M 80 exhibits superior feedback rejection in a live environment. On vocals, the response is clear and controlled, capturing the nuances of a performance with great detail while keeping sibilance and handling noise to a minimum. On drums, the M 80 is tight, punchy and open, with emphasis on the initial attack. Guitars respond with richness and clarity, horns position effortlessly in the mix, and percussion is projected with straightforward presence.

The M 80 dynamic microphone ships with a leather pouch, microphone clip and chrome headgrill for $239. Telefunken | USA is also offering the M 80 in a limited edition Studio Set package that ships with an additional black headgrill and wooden mic box for $269.
