Beyerdynamic M 160

  • Excerpt: The Beyer Dynamic M 160 comes with a small case to carry it in and a microhpone clip. The M 160 seems to be pretty fragile though, I wouldn?t take my chances with dropping it. I do wish it came with a hard case to protect it more when we have other gear around it when moving it from place to place. The M 160 only cost us around 500 dollars a...

  • Excerpt: Yeah, what Scott said [see Scott Craggs' review of the beyerdynamic M 160 ]! I love the M 160 . The first time I used one was several years ago at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco. I think it was house engineer Aaron Prellwitz who suggested that I give it a go on the horns. My first thought was, “Am I going to blow out the ribbon by putting it in front of the trumpet?” He assured me it’d be no problem.

  • Excerpt: Does the Beyer M 160 even need a review? Surely everyone knows by now that this is the mic Andy Johns used to record John Bonham’s drums on “When The Levee Breaks.” Does anything else need be said? I rather doubt, it but I will prattle on for a bit anyway. It’s a ribbon mic, but unlike most ribbons, which are figure-8, the M 160 has a hypercardioid pattern.

" One of my favorite mics" - Robin Schneider

22 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I have a pair of M160 that I use for almost a year now. I also use AEA R84, a Sontronics Saturn ... The M160 is for me one of the best quality-price ratio of the market if we take care and we have a beefy preamp behind. This is a really good microphone that will do a good record of all sources, especially if they h...

  • Excerpt: I had the opportunity to use it on an album Overhead, transplanted and transplanted guitar amp acoustic guitar (doubled with a 451). This is the first time I used the tape, and certainly not the last. Of transients just sublime overhead in soft, not aggressive (compared to the SM81, E614, NT5). On the acoustic guitar, he b...

" Excellent micro" - Izotope

  • Excerpt: I use it for 2 years now. I had the opportunity to try it during my studies and since I do not separate more. I will use the microphone to the sound film as music. For the sound film is not very easy to use, it is perched very close and have a very good mixer in order to ensure the pre-amplification, (it's a very insensiti...

  • Excerpt: I use it for over ten years. Bought to the departure for the sax, but it should very well on almost everything. Before a guitar amp, not too shrill voice, strings, percussion (couple). A model is insensitive (as is often the ribbon mics). Very good report qualitprix (half price for a Royer for his very near). The sound is free of a...

"Beyerdynamic M 160" - MGR/AlexV

Audiofanzine
15 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Beyerdynamic M 160 is a small diaphragm hypercardiod ribbon mic with TWO ribbon transducers. It looks a little bit like a childs toy but don't get it confused! I am a student, musician, writer, and pretty good line dancer residing in beautiful Nashville, TN. I've been a drummer and guitar player on and off for the past 10 years of my life ...
