Ideal for Broadcasting World
The Neumann BCM 104 is a dedicated broadcast microphone perfect for speech reproduction at close range. It is ideal for in-studio recordings and can be used by radio DJs, newscasters, announcers, talk show hosts, and broadcast announcers to convey stories. Its many different features aid in delivering a clear, direct, and noise-free sound. It is compatible with industry-standard microphone boom arms for professional use and its construction maintains a good sound quality.
Designed for the Human Voice
The fixed cardioid polar pattern of the microphone ensures excellent rejection of rearward sound to accommodate only the speaker’s voice. The specially designed large-diaphragm condenser capsule has a linear frequency response, with a gentle presence boost around 4 kHz and a slight treble lift above 10 kHz. It ensures enhanced speech intelligibility, an outstanding transient response for capturing detailed human voice at a close range. The integrated internal switch can compensate for the proximity effect and reduce the sensitivity by 14 dB.
The microphone has a twist-off head grille on top which can be easily removed for quick cleaning. There is also an integrated screen-mesh pop filter around the capsule in a tensioned mount that can be easily removed for cleaning. This pop screen protects the capsule from air blasts and plosives, as well as the build up of unwanted particles on the diaphragm.
Stunning Sound Quality
The electronic circuit of the BCM 104 can handle enormous sound pressure levels of up to 138 dB without any distortion and delivers extremely low self-noise of around 7dB-A. It produces a balanced, transformerless output with minimal hum interference and high common-mode rejection against extraneous signals. It retains the naturally warm, open and transparent sound which is pleasant to listen to.
