The Neumann U87 is a legendary condenser studio microphone renowned for its superior sound quality. It features a pressure gradient transducer and a directional characteristic that can be switched between omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8. It also includes a switchable 10 dB attenuation and a nominal impedance of 200 ohm. With a frequency range of 20 Hz – 20,000 Hz, it provides a full response across the entire spectrum. The Neumann U87 also comes with a shock mount EA87 and requires 48 V ± 4 V phantom power for operation.
