Capture any vocal in brilliant detail
With the BCM 104 Neumann decided to develop a microphone that specifically addresses the needs and working conditions of radio DJs, announcers, newscasters, talk show hosts and all those who guide us through the day with their stories, good vibes and the latest information.
The Neumann BCM 104 was optimized in its design that features an integrated pop screen and a shock protected large diaphragm condenser capsule - ideal for speech. Transformer-less circuitry ensures a direct, noise-free sound.
Designed for the Human Voice
The large diaphragm condenser capsule of the BCM 104 captures each nuance of your voice without colouration or unwanted artefacts. The mic has a fixed cardioid polar pattern with outstanding off-axis rejection. Its linear frequency response features a gentle presence boost around 4kHz, and a subtle shelf boost above 10kHz to enhance intelligibility.
The BCM 104’s electronic circuit has an extremely low self-noise of only 7 dB-A and can handle enormous sound pressure levels of up to 138 dB without distortion. Its balanced output operates transformerless to ensure minimal hum interference and high common mode rejection against extraneous signals e.g. from computer screens. A subsonic filter suppresses frequencies below 20 Hz.
