Telefunken debuts M82 broadcast mic at InfoComm

Telefunken has announced that it will be showcasing its new M82 dynamic cardioid broadcast microphone at the upcoming infoComm exhibition in Las Vegas.

Hand-assembled and tested in the company facilities in Connecticut, USA, the M82 features a 35mm diaphragm designed to capture superb low frequencies.

The M82 is an end-address microphone, meaning that the top portion of the headgrille is pointed at the sound source, and features two separate EQ switches: High Boost and Kick EQ. These two switches function independently of each other, providing four different settings.

The High Boost switch tilts the upper mid-range and high frequencies (starting around 2kHz with a 6dB boost by 10kHz). For a source such as an announcer’s voice, the high boost provides further articulation and airiness in the upper register. Also valuable as a music microphone in addition to broadcast voice, the M82’s Kick EQ switch engages a passive filter that reduces some of the lower mid-range frequencies (centred around 350Hz).

The construction of the M82 borrows heavily from the U47 body style by employing a head grille of similar architecture and is finished in a durable smooth black finish.
