Beyerdynamic's M 260 Ribbon Microphone features a warm sonic profile and flat frequency response to ensure rich recording quality for both voice and instruments. Its hypercardioid polar pattern eliminates unwanted lateral noise, making it ideal for situations when isolation is less than perfect. It also features a built in high pass filter so it's great for close miking. The versatile M 260 is a "can't miss" microphone for broadcast, recording and film studios. Since 1924 Beyerdynamic has remained a German family owned company committed to continuous research and innovative developments for the audio market. All over the world, Beyerdynamic is known for the use of the latest technologies and a high quality standard. All Beyerdynamic products are made in Germany.
