By PSW Staff • June 28, 2012 TELEFUNKEN M80 dynamic mic Wood Series in dark wood Cherry finish and light wood Oak finish. At the upcoming Summer NAMM show in Nashville, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing the new Wood Series of the popular M80 dynamic cardioid microphone. The M80 Oak (light wood) and the M80 Cherry (dark wood) microphones feature a unique hard-coat paint finish designed to replicate a wooden grain. Both Wood Series models include a microphone clip and leather carrying case. The M80 is designed for both stage and studio, performance and recording. Its directional pickup pattern and wide frequency response yield a microphone that provides functionality, isolation, and pleasing tone. The M80 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. Inside, it combines a low-mass voice coil with an extremely thin Mylar membrane and an American made custom wound impedance matching transformer.
