Product Description for the Neumann U 87 Ai

The Neumann U87 studio Microphone is famous for its warm sound and well-balanced characteristics. Equipped with a large dual-diaphragm capsule with 3 selectable directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8, it offers a 6dB improvement in signal-to-noise over its predecessor. A 10dB attenuation switch enables the U87 to handle sound levels up to 127dB without distortion; and the low frequency response can be reduced to compensate for proximity effect. The preferred studio vocal mic for decades, the Neumann U87 also makes a great main mic for band or home studio recordings, as well as a spot mic for single instruments. Frequency range: 20Hz to 20kHz; impedance rated at 200 ohms. The Shockmount includes a windscreen, cable, EA87 elastic suspension and comes in a wooden jeweler's box.


Three Polar Patterns

  • The U 87 AI features three switchable polar patterns. Omni-directional, cardioid, and figure eight patterns provide the flexibility needed in any recording scenario.
  • 10dB Pad Switch
  • 10dB attenuation switch enables the microphone to handle sound pressure levels up to 127dB.
  • Low Cut Roll-Off Switch
  • A low cut roll off switch eliminates hum, rumble and low frequency noise.
  • Advanced Output Circuitry
  • Although the microphone features the original capsule, the U 87 AI features improved output electronics that provide higher sensitivity and improved signal-to-noise ratio.
