The Telefunken M81 Universal Dynamic Handheld Microphone is a essentially a less specialized and more flexible version of the M80 handheld microphone. The M81 features a dynamic cardioid capsule with a linear frequency response and slight attenuation at the high frequencies. Its rich sound, low noise, and high off-axis rejection make is a favorite for vocal capturing, instrument cabinets, and other signals on stage or in the studio. The M81 is built tough and able to withstand the rigors of life on the road or in the studio.
- Dynamic, cardioid polar pattern
- Linear frequency response
- M81's frequency response attenuates the high end, making the mic exceptional on electric guitars, percussion instruments, rack and floor toms, as well as horns, especially the trumpet.
- A great alternative for vocals that do not benefit from the high-end response of the M80.
