It is difficult to imagine a professional audio studio without a Neumann microphone. For decades, Neumann has been regarded worldwide as the standard-setting, leading manufacturer of studio microphones. Many products introduced in the history of the company have become milestones of professional audio technology. It is no accident that when listing their equipment, audio studios almost always put Neumann microphones at the top of the list – they are a recognized sign of a highly professional operation.
The company now concentrates on its absolutely core area of expertise: high-end microphone technology for studios, and increasingly also for the stage. A highlight of the history of the company so far is certainly the Technical Grammy of 1999, awarded in recognition of all of its technological accomplishments. At the beginning of the new millennium, with the development of the Solution-D digital microphone system Neumann substantiated its continuing technological leadership in the area of innovative, future-oriented audio technology.
