Review: Telefunken M80
Positives:Awesome live mic. Perhaps more useful than the sm58 57 killer. Great value. A huge choice of colors and coats to match the variety in performers! Also, there are many songs that will track vocals better with this than anything else, a la sm7b used on MJ's thriller.
Really couldn’t believe how well this captures vocals. Clearly not the level of detail that you would expect out of an LDC, but, given the right application, this mic, like the Shure SM7b might be THE ticket. This mic is an SM58 killer for live applications.
