I was using it to record snare bottom, toms , snare top, guitar amplifier. The result is great. Only problem is the unflexible suspension, it is hard to configure the mic some cases.

But the sound is great, maybe the snare bottom recording is my very best ever.

Not so usable mic.
El Timba, 23.08.2018
Yes it is. I have a lot of Neumann mic and I purchased another one for djing and for some miking in the studio. It has a very aseptic sounding with very low clarity e deep bass (voice speech and cab amp also)... But the very frustrating thing is that it don't have any tilt regulation at all. The external clamp is rubber fixed with the mic and don't tilt in any way. Neumann says that it's a studio mic also, but you can't use it in studio easily because of it's no regulation at all. For dj specking I've bought a Rode PSA but same problem, you must use the mic only in one inclination. Neumann quality of materials and very nice looking shape but not so comfortable in use it.

Très bon
Nicolas229, 09.06.2011
Un micro au design très sympathique et des performances qui satisferont les amateurs de Radio, ou d'enregistrement propre.
Un micro que je recommande donc ! J'en suis personnellement très content.

C'est le premier microphone signé Neumann doté d'une capsule dynamique, il est optimisé pour les applications broadcast : protection anti-plosives intégrée, suppression des bruits transmis au microphone, directivité hypercardioïde.

L'émotion est véritablement très bien retranscrite et c'est un réel plaisir de travailler avec ce micro là, déjà utilisé dans plusieurs grandes Radio ainsi qu'en Studio pour des enregistrements de qualité.

Pour résumer, je dirais que ce micro convient parfaitement aux passionnés qui souhaitent avoir un bon rendu, propre.

Nettes Einsteiger Mikrofon
Tonmeister Köln, 17.06.2019
Ich mache viele Sprachaufnahmen mit dem Neumann TLM 103. Bei manchen Sprechern ist mir das TLM 103 jedoch zu detailreich - vor allem was das Aufnehmen von feinen Mundgeräuschen, Schmatzen und Papierrascheln angeht.

Also wollte ich einmal ausprobieren, ob man diesen Geräuschen mit dem etwas trägeren Impulsverhalten eines Tauchspulenmikrofos von Anfang an entgegenwirken kann.

So habe ich die Mikrofone:
Neumann BCM 705,
Shure SM 7B und
Electrovoice RE-20
miteinander verglichen.

Imagesamt gefiel mir bei den dynamischen Mikrofonen der Klang des Shure SM 7B am besten. Der mitgelieferte Schaumstoffwindschutz hielt Poplaute erstaunlich gut ab. Der Ausgangspegel war mir jedoch zu gering und selbst mit gutem Preamp und/oder Cloudlifter war das Mikrofon für meine Zwecke unbrauchbar.

Den Klang des Neumann BCM 705 empfand ich ebenso als angenehm. Tendenziell etwas dünner und unaufgeregter, aber damit auch ehrlicher als beim Shure SM 7B. Der integrierte Ploppschutz taugt meiner Meinung nach jedoch gar nichts. Der Ausgangspegel ist gut.

Schusslicht war bei meinem Test das Electrovoice RE-20. Der Klang war nicht nach meinem Geschmack. Die Höhenanhebung ist mir bei diesem Mikrofon zu stark.

Mein Fazit:
Vor allem die feinen Mundgeräusche bzw. das Schmatzen werden durch die etwas trägeren dynamischen Mikrofone recht gut minimiert. Das Neumann BCM 705 und das Shure SM 7B klangen für mich ganz passabel. Insgesamt bevorzuge ich aber doch weiterhin den gewohnten Klang des Neumann TLM 103.

Für den Rundfunk- und Podcast-Bereich wären für mich das Neumann BCM 705 und das Shure SM 7B weiterhin eine gute Alternative.
