Beyerdynamic M 201

The Beyerdynamic M 201 is a dynamic, moving coil microphone that offers natural sound reproduction like no other. It reproduces clear, detailed sound which combined with the robustness of a dynamic microphone makes the M201 is a one of a kind in the microphone scene.


The M 201 delivers a clear, detailed signal even at extremely high sound pressures. Preferably used with snare drums and electric guitar amps, this dynamic moving-coil microphone is also suitable for recording acoustic guitars and brass instruments – in the studio as well as live on stage.


The M 201 dynamic moving-coil microphone delivers an impressively natural, transparent sound across the entire frequency response of 40–18,000 Hz. It never puts its own stamp on the original signal, but instead captures it authentically. In addition, the superb basic sound leaves all options open for further processing. These features make the M 201 a must-have in every demanding microphone setup.


The M 201 has an unmistakable talent for recording speech recording and podcasts. This is where the dynamic moving-coil microphone’s excellent polar pattern proves advantageous, effectively muting interference. The largely linear frequency response with smooth treble boost ensures a balanced speech signal, while the optional wind shield will suppress plosives.


The M 201 features a hypercardioid polar pattern. This has a number of advantages. Priority is given to sound coming from the front, while most signals from the sides and some from the back are reduced. This ensures excellent channel separation. In addition, the M 201 is less prone to feedback, making it suitable for use in noisy surroundings.


Because each one is intricately hand-made, each M 201 is unique. We even go one step further and individually measure each and every microphone. A print-out of the measurement curve is included with your purchased M 201. 


Our microphones are designed for daily use in professional conditions, which is why only durable materials are used in their construction. If the microphone nevertheless gets damaged, our service policy means that we can replace almost every part.
