OVERVIEW

The most affordable studio Neumann.

The large-diaphragm condenser capsule used in the BCM 104 has a cardioid pattern with internally switchable proximity effect compensation. A second switch allows the sensitivity to be reduced by 14dB. The BCM 104 features an exceptionally low self-noise of 7 dB(A) and an overload capability extending to 138dB SPL and a dynamic range of 131dB (DIN/IEC 651). Smooth, full response is ideal for vocals. The grille twists off easily for quick cleaning. Optional, color-coded head grilles. Built-in popscreen. The elastic mount handles structure-borne noise and is compatible with standard broadcast-segment microphone arms.
Requires phantom power.

    Comments about Neumann BCM 104 Broadcast and Studio Condenser Microphone:

    very close between the 705 and the 104 for my situation. think i would lean torwards the 104 for more versatile recording but for host voice i might actually favor the 705 haven't experimented enough to be definite about it though. any way i chose it over entry level or similar priced neuman models because i think it sounds better and is more versatile then the other others. these models are very overlooked because of the broadcast stigma attached to them. the 705 has a nice presence in favor of the airiness that the 104 offers.
