Beyerdynamic MC950
Small Diaphragm True Condenser Microphone, Supercardioid


This true condenser microphone provides an enormous versatility due to its neutral sound and accurate design. The features of the MC 950 include the wide frequency response of 40-20,000 Hz and a signal-to-noise ratio of 72dB.

The MC 950 is suitable as a main or spot microphone for micing choirs, piano/grand piano, organ, orchestras and most instruments. Due to the switchable pre-attenuation of 15dB it provides excellent performance at high sound pressure levels. The switchable low-cut filter with 6dB/octave below 250Hz compensates for the proximity effect.

With the WS 101 wind shield, the MC 950 can be used for speech and vocals. The MC 950 is phantom powered (11-52V) and therefore suitable for all live or or studio applications and installations. Due to its supercardioid polar pattern, the MC 950 has an excellent gain-before-feedback and eliminates noise from the rear. It is not only a first-class tool for studios, but also for PA systems, where excellent sound and maximum gain-before-feedback are required.
