The Neumann U89i studio microphone presents improved acoustical and electrical characteristics and better high end response when compared to the U87A. The U89 has a dynamic range of 123dB, five polar patterns, a 6dB pad, and a 2 position LF roll-off switch. The U89 also has little or no off-axis coloration.
Famous for broadcast use, the Neumann U89 is recommended as a general orchestral microphone and for narration and vocals. All of the Neumann U89’s high impedance components are protected against contamination, making the U 89 highly reliable and stable over long periods of operation.
