Telefunken has announced that it will be showcasing its new M82 dynamic cardioid broadcast microphone at the upcoming infoComm exhibition in Las Vegas.
Hand-assembled and tested in the company facilities in Connecticut, USA, the M82 features a 35mm diaphragm designed to capture superb low frequencies.
The M82 is an end-address microphone, meaning that the top portion of the headgrille is pointed at the sound source, and features two separate EQ switches: High Boost and Kick EQ. These two switches function independently of each other, providing four different settings.
The High Boost switch tilts the upper mid-range and high frequencies (starting around 2kHz with a 6dB boost by 10kHz). For a source such as an announcer's voice, the high boost provides further articulation and airiness in the upper register. Also valuable as a music microphone in addition to broadcast voice, the M82's Kick EQ switch engages a passive filter that reduces some of the lower mid-range frequencies (centred around 350Hz).
The construction of the M82 borrows heavily from the U47 body style by employing a head grille of similar architecture and is finished in a durable smooth black finish.
