Microphone Rolls Royce

Straight from the presentation box, there's no mistaking the phenomenally high Neumann quality, and I fully expect many, many years of absolute perfection from this mic. Used only for studio vocals, the single sided capsule fits the bill perfectly. The only criticism I have is the rather short barrel, making mounting in a Rycote shock mount slightly awkward (but far from impossible). I would have no hesitation in buying another if the need arose.

Great mic
Anonymous 17.10.2015
Excellent vocal mic for all sorts of voices / styles. Bright but not overly sibilant and has real Neumann character.

Sounds great on many other sound sources like drum room, strings, percussion, wind instruments etc.

Owned for about 4 years and never let me down.

Neumann TLM103
Spari 02.11.2020
Neumann TLM103, great mic for vocals and acoustic instruments also, build like a tank, very accurate and transparent.
I would recommend it also for deep (baritone and bass) male voices because of clean and detailed low end.
Only con (if I can call it a "con") is that sometimes this mic sound a little bit harsh on sound "s" but you can easily get rid of that using a DeEsser

Don't hate me...

I did a blind test of this against a TLM102 and prefferd the 102! Both sound great, of course, and the differences were really only obvious when you listened to them head to head. The 102 was warmer without being boomy. Personally, i like to have a low cut as well. I'm a voice actor, but haven't got the space to build a whole soundproof booth, so a low cut helps me pick up less rumble from the environment.
