Why buy the Neumann TLM102?

Neumann makes some of our favorite mid-range mics and the TLM102 falls into that category of mic that well outperforms its price-point. If you’ve been podcasting a while and you’re ready to upgrade your gear, look no further. Here are our three reasons to buy:
  • Manufacturer’s reliability — Neumann is a German company, based in Berlin, that’s been making recording equipment since the 1920’s, and lays claim to manufacturing the world’s first ever commercially-available condenser microphone. In other words, if you buy the TLM102 you’re in safe hands when it comes to its durability and reliability.
  • Size — The Neumann TLM102 is a compact mic that packs a tremendous punch despite its small size. For travelling hosts or those with equally compact recording spaces, having a mic that doesn’t take up half the room can be a huge benefit, particularly when you’re not needing to compromise on its output.
  • Sound quality — Speaking of its output, the TLM102, like all the mics in the Neumann range, is famous for its rich sound quality. Versatile and consistent, you’ll never record a bad show again if you have one of these under your nose.
