Product Description for the Neumann TLM 103 Set

Utilizing Neumann’s famous K87 large-diaphragm capsule found in their world-renowned U87ai and U67 microphones,, the Neumann TLM-103 is a large-diaphragm condenser mic suited for a wide variety of sources. It’s set at a tight, focused, cardioid pattern that aids in the rejection of unwanted signal from the rear of the mic, as well as providing excellent isolation.

This is the highly coveted, much sought after Neumann sound, priced within reach to those on a limited budget, yet there have been no corners cut nor has their been a design compromise where quality is concerned.

The acronym “TLM” stands for “transformerless microphone.” It yields extremely low self-noise and can stand pressure levels up to 138 db, which means you can place the Neumann TLM-103 in front of pretty much any sound source and expect excellent results.

The TLM-103 shines as a vocal mic but also excels as a spot mic for woodwinds, strings, percussion, guitar cabinet micing, drum overheads, room micing, and field duties. Its low noise and wide frequency response make this microphone ideally suited for broadcast duties, be it voiceover work or foley (the reproduction of everyday sounds for use in filmmaking).

It has a distinctive look, possesses the famous Neumann badge on the front of the mic, and most importantly, it’s a Neumann. Enough said.

Review by Brack Boli
Is pre cool it gets the job done (Posted on 11/4/15)
excellent vocal and acoustic guitar mic
Review by kaz
I've compared the TLM103 to practically all my high end mics(u87,67, tlm127, m149) and it is definitely one of the best vocal mics on the market. I believe some of the negative reviews sound like sour grapes from people who don't want to pay the price of a TLM103 and most negative comments are being made by mostly Neumann's competitors. i.e. Rode, AKG etc. (Posted on 7/24/13)
Best Mic Large (K87) Capsule
Review by Cognoscere at Golden Worlds Studios
Neumann TLM103 is a TOP PICK for vocal performance artists and puts this dream mic more affordable giving more access to it.

The TLM103 gives the user the biggest bang for the buck ! While it is still higher priced than most vocal performance microphones out their on the market, it does so at roughly 1/3rd of the cost of the $3,500 U87 or U87ai! It allows more modestly budgeted studios, productions and artists access to this incredible technology with few, if any, sacrifices.

The TLM103 joins the UA87 and UA87ai in the thin category of "The Best Microphones for Vocals, Voiceover, Narration, Voice Character Acting, Lead Musical Vocals. It has no audible distortion, instead offer, crisp, clear, authentic capture and recording of vocal audio tracks. (Posted on 5/21/13)
