The Telefunken M81 Universal Dynamic Microphone is a proven choice for countless sound sources both in the studio and on the stage. It possesses the same condenser-like response, minimal proximity effect, and superior feedback rejection one expects from a TELEFUNKEN Dynamic Series microphone. A smooth frequency response, clarity, and wealth of body make the M81 an ideal tool for taming brighter vocals, guitar tones, and fattening up toms, horns, or other thinner sounding sources. Featuring intelligent design and American-assembled construction, the Telefunken M81 is an excellent first choice dynamic for most situations.

Sonic Characteristic

Building off many of the strengths of the M80, the TELEFUNKEN M81 retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and articulate mid-range. However, with the M81, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response. This combination results in a microphone with a wealth of body and clarity, making it a great tool for taming brighter vocals and guitar tones and for fattening up percussion, horns, and thinner sounding sources.

Circuit Design

The TELEFUNKEN M81’s tailored frequency response makes the microphone exceptional on electric guitars, percussion, rack and floor toms, and brass instruments. This microphone’s wide range of uses and rugged reliability make it the workhorse for the new generation.


Finished in the same flint gray body tube and tri-chrome head grill styling as the R-F-T AR-51, the M81 is readily identifiable when reaching for the microphone. The M81 was very much designed with the AR-51 in mind. Great care was taken to tune the M81’s overall response to be complementary to the AR-51 when recording electric guitars.


Basically, the TELEFUNKEN M81 is designed to be used on… well, anything and everything! It truly is a “Universal Dynamic Microphone”. Each M81 Universal Dynamic microphone ships with a zipper bag and M 780 mic clip.
