The M 59 by Beyerdynamic is a rugged, vocal quality dynamic microphone employing enhanced field magnet technology designed to withstand the demands of in studio or on location ENG/EFP speech and interview applications. The microphone's low mass, large diaphragm element and hypercardioid polar pattern offers fast transient response, high output, high sensitivity, and accurate reproduction while also providing excellent off axis rejection. The M 59 incorporates a sophisticated internal shock mount isolation system designed to reduce stand, boom, or handheld noise and vibration. Its durable construction and non glare finish will provide consistent protection against the rigors of on air and on location ENG/EFP production applications. The M 59 also incorporates an internal multistage blast filter designed to reduce undesirable wind or pop noise. The optional WS 59 large cell wind screen (sold separately) is recommended for on air, voice over and other close talking applications. Due to its high gain before feedback, the M 59 is ideal for lecterns, choirs, or music groups. The M 59 can be used on a stand, boom, gooseneck, or as a handheld microphone. Since 1924 Beyerdynamic has remained a German family owned company committed to continuous research and innovative developments for the audio market.
