If you could travel back to the year 1953, what would you do once you arrived? I don't know about you, but I'd immediately try to purchase some classic microphones. The desire to go back in time to buy recording equipment is what pushes the microphone manufacturer Telefunken. They're well-known for making some of the world's best sounding recreations of classic mics, and for producing new models that draw heavily on their vintage expertise. That's why we're proud to announce that B&H has become a Telefunken dealer!
You're probably familiar with the old analogy about how you can get from point A to point B in a cheap used car or in a high-end sports car (like a sweet vintage Porche). Well, this analogy doesn't really work with Telefunken microphones. If a Telefunken microphone is the high-end sports car, then yes, it will get you to point B a lot faster. But you will arrive at point B sounding far more amazing then you would have otherwise.
Telefunken manufactures premier microphones that are used in the best recording studios around the world. A facility in Hollywood California called Ocean Way Recording has more Telefunken 251 microphones than anyone else, and likewise their client list reads like a who's who of popular music through the ages(Frank Sinatra, Radiohead, Ray Charles, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Joni Mitchell, Green Day, and on and on).
