Product description

The M 160, a multiple award-winning ribbon microphone, is the true star of the M series: Delicate workmanship teams up with precision components in this microphone. The M 160 is fondly called a gem, for obvious reasons. The microphone has refined hit after hit for decades with its fantastic sound: Good bass response, warm mid-ranges and silky highs meld together in a special vintage sound. Anyone who knows anything about this microphone is certain of one thing: The M 160 is without equal.

Beyerdynamic is one of few microphone manufacturers world-wide that still produce ribbon microphones. A classic one is the M 160, a dynamic double ribbon microphone. Featuring a hypercardioid polar pattern with a noise attenuation of 25 dB at 110, the M 160 is an outstanding microphone which is very effective for all types of remote and in-studio voice reproduction. In the recording studio, the M 160 is recommended for miking string instruments such as violins, violas, cellos and for pianos, saxophones as well as for hi-hat and toms.

The non-glare black surface of the M 160 and its small dimensions allow the unobtrusive use in TV or film studios. In conjunction with the M 130 dynamic double ribbon microphone the M 160 is ideal for stereo recordings in MS technique.
