Presenting the RM 510 Wireless Ribbon Microphone
The RM 510 is an interchangeable ribbon capsule for Beyerdynamic’s OPUS 900 and OPUS 600 wireless systems.
The RM 510’s capsule design features a 3 micrometre thick aluminium ribbon that delivers frequency response and transient behavior. A sound channelling technology provides the capsule with its cardioid polar pattern making the RM 510 a ribbon capsule for use on stage with wireless microphone systems. The capsule’s treble resonator delivers high-frequency reproduction and also serves to protect against “plosives", according to the company.
By employing a sound labyrinth on the rear of the diaphragm and using an acoustic fabric, Beyerdynamic has succeeded in improving not only the sound characteristics but also the technical specifications of the RM 510, the manufacturer claims.
The RM 510’s forerunner is the M 500 ribbon microphone. The lineage is especially noticeable in the RM 510’s housing design, stainless steel mesh basket with multilayer metal gauze.
RM 510 is designed to offer a detailed, colouration-free sound with the same treble reproduction that characterizes beyerdynamic ribbon microphones, and the capsule’s design delivers significant rear attenuation resulting in feedback suppression ideal for live vocals on even “loud” stages.
The RM 510 interchangeable ribbon microphone capsule will be available for beyerdynamic’s Opus 600 and Opus 900 wireless systems from the first quarter of 2011.
