Superb Quality Mic
The covey, 02.07.2020
Using this for vocals and Podcasting and it's superb! If you're looking to spend a bit of cash and really upgrade your sound then you're looking at an excellent piece of equipment.

Build Quality is top-notch, You'll be taken aback by the size of it, it's very small, but the build is rock solid. You'll be hard-pressed to break this one unless you're a complete idiot. Weight-wise it's very balanced as well, not top or bottom heavy at all.

The frequency response is very flat giving you a super warm sound. It lacks the extremely detailed high-end that the 103 has but unless that's such a requirement for you that it's worth the extra 300-400 euro spend, stick with this and you'll be set for whatever you use it for.

It loses a star for features because it doesn't really have any. This is the only con of this Mic, it's a Cardioid pattern mic and that's all. If you're expecting or in need of alternative patterns this mic doesn't have them. That said, the sound quality out of this is well worth it.

This mic may seem expensive but for a Neumann it's quite low price and anything with the Neumann logo on it is guaranteed to be excellent. It's such a good mic!

Great for my home studio!
iulz, 15.12.2019
I would definitely recommend it to all beginners with a bigger budget but also to more experienced producers/singers. I've had it for three years and I'm not even considering switching it with another one. Sooo worth the money!

I like it
26.12.2015
I use it to record voices, acoustic guitars and drums (as an overhead - Glyn Johns technique) . It is well balanced! I loved it immediately!

Pros: small size, light weight, quality, frequency response.

Cons: So far I have not found something, maybe the price (but is a Neumann)

Perfect sound, but lacking a couple of options
Eli Thorne, 18.06.2020
I ordered several mics from several brands ranging from 300-900 euros, and this one came out top for sound for me personally. It even beat out its big brother, the TLM103!

I love the warmth and presence of it, and i'm a professional voiceover artist. I only miss the ability for a low cut and some pattern options. Bit of a shame, but it can't spoil it!
