Double-Ribbon Microphone (Hypercardioid)

Beyerdynamic is one of few microphone manufacturers world-wide that still produce ribbon microphones. A classic one is the M 160, a dynamic double ribbon microphone.

Featuring a hypercardioid polar pattern with a noise attenuation of 25 dB at 110°, the M 160 is an outstanding microphone which is very effective for all types of remote and in-studio voice reproduction. In the recording studio, the M 160 is recommended for miking string instruments such as violins, violas, cellos and for pianos, saxophones as well as for hi-hat and toms.

The non-glare black surface of the M 160 and its small dimensions allow the unobtrusive use in TV or film studios. In conjunction with the M 130 dynamic double ribbon microphone the M 160 is ideal for stereo recordings in MS technique.

Having made its name on popular recordings with guitar amplifiers and drums, the M 160 has proven itself to be a standout performer. On the drums, it shows off its skills by capturing the entire set, thanks particularly to its ability to reach the deep drums quite well.

    Excellent voice mic
    Im a software engineer who works from home. I spend a lot of time on Zoom etc and needed a mic that cuts background noise (dog, baby, etc) and that can pick up bass region well as I have a higher pitched voice. Condenser mics pick up far too much background noise. Read more

    Beyerdynamic M160 Ribon Mic
    Bought this mainly for fiddle that was very high mids and top end and scratchy when recorded on other condenser mics. This mic made the world of difference. Also used it on a project for Accordion that was also harsh sounding and could hear the button noise, this solved the issue. Read more
