OVERVIEW

Live sound dynamic microphone with the performance of a studio condenser.

The TELEFUNKEN M80 features a wider frequency response and higher SPL capabilities, delivering a condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design. The M80 is a microphone equally suitable for voice, instruments or drums on both stage and in the studio. Due to its low mass capsule and super thin (yet surprisingly rugged) capsule membrane the M80 presents a wider range of emotion from a live vocal with an intimacy that has been traditionally reserved for studio quality condenser microphones.

The head and capsule assembly has been designed to reduce proximity effect to which nets added low end clarity for vocals, while still providing "strength" and "authority" and an "open," "airy" character without adding danger of upper midrange feedback or "honk." The M80 also features an American made custom wound impedance matching transformer which is where the magic really takes place.


Take your sound from the studio to the stage. Order today!

Comments about Telefunken M80 Dynamic Microphone:

First off, I rely heavily on customer reviews before purchasing any product online. That being said, I did alot of research on vocal microphones before coming to this purchase. I currently own an SM58, Beta 58, Beta 87, Senn. 935, and an E/V 767a. I've been struggling recently to find a vocal microphone to fit my voice. I had settled on the Beta 58 for awhile, but still found that it sounded too muddy/boomy. Eventually, I had narrowed down my search to the Heil PR35 and the Tele M80. I almost bought the Heil but some reviews said that it was heavy on the bass end, which is what tipped the scale toward the M80. After plugging the M80 into my PA, all I can say is "wow!". It is exactly what I have been looking for in a vocal mic. Great clarity without being harsh or sibilant, and not boomy or muddy on the low end. Truly a fantastic vocal microphone.

    Comments about Telefunken M80 Dynamic Microphone:

    I have been looking for a microphone that actually improves my vocals. This is it! I am 50 years old and have tried out dozens of microphones. Several others have worked out but none have the apparent magic that this one does. It truly highlights the good parts of my voice and improves the weakness. My problem areas include a need to add some lower end body while subtracting some of my upper range harshness. This mic does that. I don't know how but it is incredible. Over the years I have tried lots of Sennheisers, lots of Shures, Beyer, lots of audio technical etc. This is THE REAL DEAL!

        Comments about Telefunken M80 Dynamic Microphone:

        All I can say is wow! I got the mic Saturday, had a gig Monday, and as soon as I sang into the mic it was like "where have you been all my life". I have tried all the other main brands, Shure Beta, Sennheiser, Audix, Audio Technica, and this mic blows them all out of the water by a long shot. It picks up all the little nuances in your voice and seems to allow me to be more soulful and sing softer when it counts but it is also responsive when I'm screaming the blues like no other. The back up singer in our band heard it and said" well, guess I'm getting that one for sure. Got a few compliments on how it sounded from other musicians and a few other of my musician friends were curious and now after hearing the praise from me, they will all want one too. Everyone I know will hear about how this is the absolute best mic you can use and I will be a big proponent of your brand for sure! My Beta is going on Craigslist and I will definitely use all Telefunken for everything from now on. I honestly couldn't believe the difference in the sound quality and can't believe I have gone this long with out it. It feels like a much more rugged and sturdy mic and looks beautiful. This mic is essential to any singer, professional or even amateur musician that wants the absolute best in vocal sound at a very reasonable price.

          20 plus years playing and singing clubs, fairs casinos etc.
          Had a problem with the SM58 picking up low register notes without a drop in volume. The M80 is LOUD and Clear! Zero feedback issues compared to the SM58 as well. I'm a happy camper!

            The sound on this mic is incredible. It has less feedback than my Beta 58. It has an "airy" sound that sounds as if I was working in a studio. If Telefunken makes it, you know it will be top of the line.

              Great sounding microphone. Looks great. Who else has a gold or chrome plated mic? From Telefunken no less. Really bought these as an investment. Hoping they are somewhat of a limited edition, but they sound so great, I will use them live otr in the studio too.

                Comments about Telefunken M80 Dynamic Microphone:

                THIS MIC IS AWESOME!!! I'm surprised to see only a couple of reviews about it. They advertise that this thing is "condenser like". I said the same thing you are saying "I doubt it". After using this mic in many different settings and putting it through the musical gauntlet, i would actually describe it as.... condenser like. Its really the closest dynamic I've heard to matching the clarity of a condenser but without all the problems and complications that come with a condenser. I've had a couple of condensers and they sound so clean but u cant ever get them to cut through the mix in a loud setting cause they pick up everything on stage. I have a deep voice and I bought the m80 for its 30-hz response. It's so easy to sing into the Telefunken and all the subtleties and nuances that it takes to the crowd are unreal. I got the Heil Sound pr35 with it cause you can't try out ether one of them in store. Then I tried all the others out in the store. The mics I've used live are the Blue 300 condenser, Audix om5, AT ae4100, AT m8000, AT ae5400 condenser, EV cobalt 7, Heil pr35 and of course the Sure sm58 and 57. I like every mic on this list more than the sm58. Still trying to figure out what's so great about the "industry standard". If you want your voice to sound sub-par and kind of cheesy then the sm58 is the mic for you.

                My favorite of the dynamics is the pr35 and the Telefunken. I really liked the pr35 but I sent it back and kept the Telefunken. That's right, I said it! I'll say it again, just in case I didn't make myself clear. The Telefunken m80 sounds better than the Heil Sound pr35. I really wanted the pr35 to be the better mic because I read so much about it. I put them though a side by side comparison on 4 different stages. After extensive EQ tweaking and 3 1/2 weeks later it was more than obvious which mic had a new home and which one would have to pack its tiny little bags. If you are looking for a mic that can handle a little more stage noise and adds body to a thin voice, go with the pr35. The m80 handles noise very well too but in all fairness, nothing handles noise like the pr35. The number one reason I chose the Telefunken can be summed up in 3 words; clarity, clarity and clarity... almost... condenser like.

                I firmly believe that there is a different mic for every voice. Try out the Telefunken. You will be doing yourself an injustice if u don't. 250$ is a small price to pay for something as impotent as vocals.

                    I ordered this mic for my husband for Christmas this year, he is a pro musician. He was enamored Alan Thickes Gold Mic which I understand is about 3k or more. This M80 is every bit as impressive and a WOW factor as Alan Thickes, and when my husband opened the box, it's Awesome ! A sound engineer we know at a well known local music store here recommended it, and said it was an excellent, and one of the best mics around.

                      This is a great sounding Dynamic MIC.Im not a vocalist im a guitarist and I mainly mic guitars for live sound or recording, so that's where my review is coming from, although this does sound great with Vocals in my opinion. As a matter of fact I have a 1967 or 68 SHURE Unisphere 1...that's a great MIC..Those MICS were on stage at Woodstock and were used everywhere else ..The M80 compares very favorably..The designs are similar. I highly recommend the Telefunken M80. The price is high compared to other Dynamic MICs but If you need a good MIC and you cant afford six hundred and up for a middle of the road Tube microphone or other powered type,this is a MUCH better option than buying a cheapy.Don't buy the cheap-o tube MIC buy one of these..trust me its a better deal.
