The M81 builds off of the same features of the M80 that have made it so popular; minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and an articulate mid-range. However, with the M81 the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response. The result is a microphone that not only complements the M80, but also stands on its own in a universe filled with dynamic microphones. The TELEFUNKEN M81 exhibits a wealth of body and clarity, making it a great tool for fattening up percussion, horns, and any thinner sounding sources. The controlled high frequency response is ideal for taming brighter vocals and guitar tones without sacrificing detail.
