Neumann U 89 i
The Neumann U 89 is a very universal microphone that can be used in many recording environments. It has a dual diaphragm capsule and a rotary switch that can give you a choice of 5 different polar patterns. When I say this microphone is versatile I mean it. You can even record things with this microphone from a farther distance then you would think. You don’t have to be standing right directly in front of the microphone in order to have the U 89 pick up audio. You can be a good distance away and it can still pick it up, which leads me to think they created this microphone more for recording things from a distance. I have used many other Neumann microphones in the past and none of them can really compare to the U 89 I.


OVERALL OPINION

The quality of recordings you will get with the U89 matches the price point that it sells for. This microphone will cost , it is not cheap. But it is worth every dollar that it cost, I am very happy with the choice we chose to use this microphone. With the wide angled cardioid pattern, it surpasses the basic standard patterns. The U 89 can record huge recordings very clean. Meaning like a whole section of people or a group of instruments. There are a lot of uses for the Neumann U 89. I have used the Neumann U 87 and there are some similarities between this U 89 and the U 87 but the U89 is better built and smaller than the U 87. Both of them are great microphones though. I highly recommend the U 89 and the U 87. The U 89’s built in amplifier can take sounds up to like 140 decibels without having in issues or distortion. That is un heard of!

Neumann U 89 i
I am looking for a high quality microphone for voice taken in a soundproof cabin as a pre-amp TL Audio M610.
I would like connatre the main differences between U87 and U89 Neuman ???
Some prtendent the U89 would be even better thanks to its versatility ???
Other than for voice recording there is no salvation outside the U87 ???
Someone would tell me what the letters correspond paste on behind the figure EXAMPLE: U89 i U87 Ai or else ???
Davance thank you for your help
Sincerely,
RMI

U-FLYstudio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Neumann U 89 i
A condenser microphone simple and comprehensive, discreet, 5 directional, two choices of low-cut filter (80 and 160 Hz) an attenuator,
OR double laminae, exit 3-pin XLR,

* Significantly smaller than the U87 (see photo) is also less colorful, less vivid, more neutral, more evident.
with the TLM 170 microphones are the two most versatile of the brand, they are also necessarily what are the most simple model under some personalities exacerbated in the good or less good way ... (U87Ai, M147 ...)
Output in 1980

OVERALL OPINION

An excellent microphone, with nice bass, an acute and a medium soft enough precise and gentle
I like a lot the simplicity that emerges dynamic, personal property and that serious!
very realistic on solo strings, guitars, vocals back in, it is close enough to the AKG C414Eb, taken for its more than fifty cm, in terms of close miking taken, I prefer the U89i more homogeneous and easier to insert in a mix.

What is troubling with the U89, it is this sense of ease in making, this does not mean that one should not work on his investment, but it makes some mistakes that are often fatal with sensors and other types TLM 103 Rode .. .
I highly recommend this microphone in a relationship with a good preamp, then it is an extreme versatility.
If you do not need the five directional, the TLM193 is the cardio version of the TLM 170 is very close to the timbre of U89i, not so sweet!

in string solos, it is beautiful in a little bow in Floux pizza or KM 74,75,84,85,86 them will return this part of the best games.
it is one of good sensors of the mark (it is also shorter than those mentioned I do not like Neumann (KM 184 and M147)!)

Neumann U 89 i
Superb construction and design.

OVERALL OPINION

I joined the opinion of Previous Plastok2 and 3prod. I would add that it would sound like a baritone but KM84. It's the same class, no vulgaris and great ease in the work setting or mix. For production sound and voices I prfre the U87 and the reverse on a pop mix lightly loaded, and not for her but to ease the mix. It's great that this grave may attempt to Premire taken. But finally APRS To insert a drums, bass and keyboards, etc ..., has become cumbersome, it is better to use a U87, more simplistic. By a vote against one or two acoustic guitars and a piano, fltes, trs things sound, what, the U89 is the perfect, a bit of all these instruments elsewhere. It is even very easy to record a singer-guitarist with one U89. It is prettier than a U87, which tends DGRAD acoustic guitar or with a km 84 which is at least as good on the guitar but without leaving too small imperfections in the voice and boiling slightly proximity. Unlike the U87 which has a range of applications a little strait, the U89 DGRAD do anything, even if other microphones can do better on brass, percussion and drums, guitars and electric piano. It works somewhat like a AKG B-ULS, too easy, but it's not the same (got a case).
