The Neumann TLM 107 Condenser Microphone Nickel. For decades Neumann has been setting standards in the world of studio microphones, and the TLM 107 follows closely to a tradition of innovation. With five directional characteristics and a novel-operating concept, this standard-setting large-diaphragm microphone provides sound without any coloration. Featuring equally impressive level stability and low self-noise, it captures everything from the softest whisper to thundering drums.
Use the Neumann TLM 107 for everything from broadcasting, to studio and demanding home recording applications. The TLM 107 doesn’t try to imitate a vintage sound or dated relic, in fact it’s just the opposite, a modern studio mic with detailed, high-precision sound reproduction that is very close to the original source. Neumann Engineering The newly developed sound transducer, which was designed especially for this microphone, is impressive with its outstanding impulse fidelity.
The great consistency of the five polar patterns, omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8, with the intermediate patterns wide-angle cardioid and hypercardioid, is also unusual for a large-diaphragm capsule. The TLM 107 provides optimal sound not only for the cardioid setting; it also ensures maximum precision over the entire frequency range for all of the other directional characteristics. The sound always remains balanced, with an almost linear reproduction up to 8 kHz, and a slight boost in the highest frequencies that lends presence and freshness to the voice.
Here particular attention has been paid to the natural reproduction of speech sounds, especially the critical “s” sound. The grille is acoustically optimized for low sensitivity to pop sounds. In addition, the sound transducer is edge-terminated, with both diaphragms at ground voltage. Specifically, this ensures considerably reduced sensitivity to dust and humidity.
