Neumann TLM 103 MT Anniversary Cardioid Microphone with Shockmount and Carry Case, Matte Black 

The extremely quiet self-noise of the TLM 103 is regarded a milestone until today. In technical terms: a noise level of just 7 dB(A). In other words: the TLM 103 is so low noise that even the faintest nuances become audible. Thus, it is perfectly suited for vocals and audio drama productions in high definition as well as for demanding samples production and instrumental recordings.

We equipped the TLM 103 with a very broad presence boost in the area of 6 to 15 kilohertz which helps the voice to cut through the mix. The TLM 103 offers everything demanding users could wish for: nuanced vocals with precise reproduction of sibilants and excellent speech intelligibility. The sound character of the TLM 103 cannot deny its origin: Its role model in the development process was our U 87, which is regarded the reference microphone in studios around the globe. After almost two decades, the TLM 103 has become a modern classic itself which sets new standards with its characteristic presence and its extremely low self-noise.

Our TLM series works with a transformerless output stage. This means: a clean and direct sound, very “close” to the acoustic source, and a powerful bass transmission all the way down to the lowest frequencies. Its transformerless output stage also makes the microphone resistant to electromagnetic fields and minimizes transmission losses.
