Although Titanium has been known to have unique and desirable characteristics for some time, it has, until very recently, been very difficult to procure in the quality necessary for use in a microphone of this type. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe headgrille is shaped just like that on the original M 50, as requested by various top engineers in the recording industry. Due to mounting the pressure capsule with the diaphragm flush to the surface of a small (40 mm) sphere, the directional characteristic of the M 150 Tube is entirely unique. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAt the lowest frequencies, this system is a pure omnipressure transducer with a perfectly circular polar pattern. However, in the mid- and upper frequencies, the pickup pattern becomes more narrow. The M 150 Tube is an ideal microphone for any stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround recording, particularly DECCA Tree technique.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eElectrical features\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe dynamic range of the M 150 Tube is 119 dB, allowing reproduction of the full musical expression, without restraint. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWith a low self noise of 15 dB-A, more gain can be used without risk of adding noise to the final product. The transformerless output circuit of this microphone allows for extremely fine reproduction of small signals and low frequency information. Also, long cable runs can be used with no loss of signal quality.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFilter and pre-attenuation\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAt the rear of the microphone is a –10 dB switch and a switchable footfall filter for the attenuation of frequencies below 40 Hz. In the position “LIN”, a limit frequency of 16 Hz is made active. This is mainly to protect the console inputs from the effects of sub-audio noise (e.g. strong air currents). The –10 dB function is effected by voltage division and should be used only where the danger of over-loading follow-on equipment with very high signal levels is present. This switch does not extend the dynamic range of the microphone, but shifts the output level down by 10 dB. \u003cbr\u003e*The design of the microphone is a registered design of the Georg Neumann GmbH in certain countries. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatures\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ctable width=\"100%\"\u003e\n\u003ctbody\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAll Titanium capsule\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eUnparalleled transient accuracy\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePressure omni capsule for extended low frequency response\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eModern version of the world-famous M 50\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTransformerless tube amplifier based on the award-winning M 149 Tube microphone\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIdeal for DECCA tree recording and surround miking techniques\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVery low self noise of 15 dB-A\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eStereo sets with consecutive serial numbers\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003c\/tbody\u003e\n\u003c\/table\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eTechnical Data\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ctable width=\"100%\"\u003e\n\u003ctbody\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAcoustical operating principle\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePressure transducer\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDirectional pattern\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOmnidirectional\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFrequency range\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e20 Hz ... 20 kHz\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSensitivity at 1 kHz into 1 kohm\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e20 mV\/Pa\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRated impedance\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e50 ohms\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRated load impedance\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e1 kohms\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eEquivalent noise level, CCIR\u003csup\u003e1)\u003c\/sup\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e28 dB\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eEquivalent noise level, A-weighted\u003csup\u003e1)\u003c\/sup\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e15 dB-A\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSignal-to-noise ratio, CCIR\u003csup\u003e1)\u003c\/sup\u003e (rel. 94 dB SPL)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e66 dB\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSignal-to-noise ratio, A-weighted\u003csup\u003e1)\u003c\/sup\u003e (rel. 94 dB SPL)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e79 dB\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTypical SPL (tube characteristic)\u003csup\u003e2)\u003c\/sup\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eK \u0026lt;

M 150 Tube

A redesigned classic with state-of-the-art circuit technology and correspondingly low self-noise. Like the legendary M 50, this tube microphone is ideal for orchestral recording.

Since the 1950s, the Neumann M 50 has been heralded as the ideal microphone for orchestral recording and string scoring. With its phenomenal transient response and unique directional characteristic, this classic mic has endeared many fans, both in the control room and on the soundstage.

The new M 150 Tube* takes many of the features from the original M 50 and incorporates them in a very modern microphone. With low self noise, a Titanium membrane and capsule, transformerless tube amplifier and sophisticated power supply, the M 150 Tube is not a reissue but an entirely new microphone in its own right.

Acoustical features
The Titanium diaphragm of the pressure capsule is 12 mm in diameter and is exceedingly thin. Although Titanium has been known to have unique and desirable characteristics for some time, it has, until very recently, been very difficult to procure in the quality necessary for use in a microphone of this type.

The headgrille is shaped just like that on the original M 50, as requested by various top engineers in the recording industry. Due to mounting the pressure capsule with the diaphragm flush to the surface of a small (40 mm) sphere, the directional characteristic of the M 150 Tube is entirely unique.

At the lowest frequencies, this system is a pure omnipressure transducer with a perfectly circular polar pattern. However, in the mid- and upper frequencies, the pickup pattern becomes more narrow. The M 150 Tube is an ideal microphone for any stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround recording, particularly DECCA Tree technique.

Electrical features
The dynamic range of the M 150 Tube is 119 dB, allowing reproduction of the full musical expression, without restraint.

With a low self noise of 15 dB-A, more gain can be used without risk of adding noise to the final product. The transformerless output circuit of this microphone allows for extremely fine reproduction of small signals and low frequency information. Also, long cable runs can be used with no loss of signal quality.

Filter and pre-attenuation
At the rear of the microphone is a –10 dB switch and a switchable footfall filter for the attenuation of frequencies below 40 Hz. In the position “LIN”, a limit frequency of 16 Hz is made active. This is mainly to protect the console inputs from the effects of sub-audio noise (e.g. strong air currents). The –10 dB function is effected by voltage division and should be used only where the danger of over-loading follow-on equipment with very high signal levels is present. This switch does not extend the dynamic range of the microphone, but shifts the output level down by 10 dB.
*The design of the microphone is a registered design of the Georg Neumann GmbH in certain countries.
