Tom Powder's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Revolutionized my idea of ​​static!"

Neumann TLM 170 R
Versatile condenser microphone static.
Has a low cut at 100Hz and a 20dB PAD, there is also a micro switch on the 5 directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid extended cardioid, hyper cardioid and 8 in a position to choose the directional distance with a case ( I do not have).

I have not tested its suspension because it works with the suspension of U87 and the guy who sold it to me has given me.

It goes down, it is not aggressive at the top, it feels that it is not the Chinese!

He collects 146dB and 156 without PAD with!


I have it for 3 months, I recorded an EP with one of my groups and I used it everywhere, this mic is awesome. I tried a lot of static before I decide to buy one, (414, TLM 102, 103, rode Nt1, AT4033, AT2020, etc ...) Nothing really comparable in price. I like everything, the look, and especially the sound. On occasion, the price quality ratio is excellent, as new but it's painful!
With experience, I do it again this choice without hesitation.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Finish / Sharpness"

Neumann TLM 170 R
microphone used for voice / guitar.
you know the sound I am very demanding!
How I sold micro ... .


how long: 1day (I did not need to hear that more is kings).
if I try another model??? ho yes, many neumann, I had the tlm 127 neuf/U87 vintage/103/at4050/c414/rode K2/tlm 193 / ... /
I try all except akg c12.

what I like the most:
Sound-highly accurate
A soft-
A more in-moin finished.
-Do not be afraid of this micro did not remove frequencies, but to add (as it gives the beauter).
if you have a good acoustic, eq has not used this mic!

The Witness:
nothing! even the price is not excessived, I no longer dream of having a akg c12, it satisfies me.

Personal: The tg2 with tlm = 170R unbeatable!
Custom: Better than the U87 to finish and sharpness general!

doc benway's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" superb"

Neumann TLM 170 R
c is a capacitor with quite directional, and a remote control (the remote r) exists to change from her bed.


after 2 years of use, it never disappointed me: c c is the normal micro most faithful that I have (U87, 184 km, akg414, sputnik, RODE NT1000, various dynamic +)! it simply renders it that we put forward, its EQ curve is very flat .. even when it's with neumann, just compress almost.
more versatile that one U87, one less bright that 414, he deserves to be known.
will visit the neumann, very complete.
