Beyerdynamic M 160 Dynamic Double Ribbon Microphone
A double ribbon microphone that is especially sympathetic with vocals that contain a high level of sibilance and where a warm sound is desired. The double ribbon construction handles higher SPL levels without significantly adding to the diaphragm mass.
The M 160's low-mass, low-inertia ribbons reproduce transients with complete accuracy to create a crisply detailed sound and a transparent acoustic image. The true hypercardioid pattern provides 25 dB attenuation at 110 degrees, suppressing lateral interference and allowing high gain levels without feedback.
The accurate, uncolored sound of the M 160 is suited to a wide variety of demanding recording and sound reinforcement applications. Paired with the bidirectional M 130, it creates an authentic stereo image in the M-S (Mid-Side) miking technique. The compact metal casing has a matte black chromium plating with extremely low reflectivity, an important consideration in television and film applications.
The M 160s breakthrough design employs two aluminum ribbons in a vertical array only .0002 inches apart. Each ribbon is less than one twelve-thousandth of an inch thick, and much shorter than conventional ribbons. A special forming process makes them highly resistant to overload or mechanical shock.
