Neumann M150 OMNIDIRECTIONAL For decades the Neumann M50 has been one of the most sought-after microphones, combining phenomenal transient response and unique directional characteristic to become a classic. The new M150 incorporates the best features of the M50 into a very modern microphone. With low self noise, titanium membrane and capsule, and transformerless tube amplifier, the M150 Tube is not a reissue but an entirely new microphone in its own right. The M150 Tube is ideal for stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround recording, particularly DECCA Tree technique. Full details are very extensive, but click on Further Details for more technical information.

The Titanium diaphragm of the pressure capsule is 12 mm in diameter and is exceedingly thin. Although Titanium has been known to have unique and desirable characteristics for some time, it has, until very recently, been very difficult to procure in the quality necessary for use in a microphone of this type. The headgrille is shaped just like that on the original M50, as requested by various top engineers in the recording industry. Due to mounting the pressure capsule with the diaphragm flush to the surface of a small (40 mm) sphere, the directional characteristic of the M150 Tube is entirely unique. At the lowest frequencies, this system is a pure omnipressure transducer with a perfectly circular polar pattern. However, in the mid- and upper frequencies, the pickup pattern becomes more narrow. The M150 Tube is an ideal microphone for any stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround recording, particularly DECCA Tree technique. The dynamic range of the M150 Tube is 119 dB, allowing reproduction of the full musical expression, without restraint. With a low self noise of 15 dB-A, more gain can be used without risk of adding noise to the final product. The transformerless output circuit of this microphone allows for extremely fine reproduction of small signals and low frequency information. Also, long cable runs can be used with no loss of signal quality. Directional pattern Omnidirectional. Frequency range 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Sensitivity at 1 kHz into 1 kohm 20 mV/Pa. Rated impedance 50 ohms. Weight 800g.
