        The Beyerdynamic M 260 microphone is a dynamic ribbon microphone used for vocals and miking instruments at broadcast, recording and film studios. The M 260 mic's flat frequency response and natural, warm ribbon sonic profile make it a highly effective element of the digital recording process. The hypercardioid polar pattern provides an extremely high gain-before-feedback and elimination of lateral noise (maximum at 115 degrees). The M 260 is equipped with a built-in high-pass-filter, which compensates the close miking effect, when the microphone is applied very close to an instrument. The microphone also features a high insensitivity towards magnetic stray fields and extreme temperatures. The rugged grille protects the microphone system against accidental hits and kicks.

        • Hypercardioid polar pattern

        Wonderful Ribbon Microphone

        By Showtime Dave

        from South Florida

        Comments about Beyerdynamic M 260 Dynamic Ribbon Microphone - Hypercardioid Pattern:

        I purchased both a new M160 and M260 microphone at the same time. I had an M500 ribbon from Beyer about twenty years ago and always loved it s superior sound quality. I tested both 260 and 160 on my vocal which has a lot of low resonance to it and the 260 handled it wonderfully making me sound full and round without any low frequency pronunciation, reminding of a U47 condensor sound, next i tried it on acoustic guitar and wow is all I can say. Next I used the 260 along with and SM58 on electric guitar cab and this was just the best. Just a note that Eddy Cramer routinely used a 160 or 260 for recording Jimmy Hendrix's guitar because Jimmy cut live in the studio along with the band the Hypercardiode pattern prevents leakage this was also the mic Ed used for hendrix vocals as hendrix vocals were also recorded live along with the band.
