My Review

It’s says Telefunken on it. Sold. No seriously yes it is pricey for a handheld dynamic compared to an sm58. But I wouldnt compare it to a 58. The M80 is a fantastic mic that can be well used on a variety of sources. It even can venture into SM7b territory when paired with a good pre. My main uses for this are snare and guitar cabs. It lives on snare. If I wasnt paranoid about dust it would just stay there. It is thick and dark on snare which is what I like. Not brittle or high midrange pingy. It gets that good low mid pop with just the right sheen on the highs. On guitar it is just much more “pro” sounding than the usual 57 (which I never liked). Just like any mic it just depends on what you are using it on. But if you want a handheld with an awesome name, look, feel, and sound get one.
