Building off many of the strengths of the M80, the M81 retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and articulate mid-range. However, with the M81, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response. This combination results in a microphone with a wealth of body and clarity, making it a great tool for taming brighter vocals and guitar tones and for fattening up percussion, horns and thinner sounding sources.
In addition to the M81, Telefunken have release a range of different M80s, all with the same great qualities the original M80 has but with aesthetics to suit all types! The current range boast gold, chrome, oak and cherrywood!
