- Large-diaphragm microphone with cardioid directional characteristic (pressure gradient transducer)
- Compact Neumann design
- Very high maximum sound pressure level (144 dB)
- Slight presence boost above 6 kHz helps vocals to shine in the mix
The TLM 102 defines a new generation of Neumann studio microphone. It sets a new performance and value standard for microphones at this price. It’s reduced overall size contributes to an exceptionally compact appearance, which unites all of the typical design components of a Neumann microphone. The harmonious proportions and gleaming grille ring ensure that even at first glance, the TLM 102 attracts attention. The TLM 102 delivers impressive sound. It’s newly developed large-diaphragm capsule (cardioid) clocks a maximum sound pressure level of 144 dB, permiting the recording of percussion, drums, and amps at extremely high output levels. Acoustic instruments benefit from the exceptionally fast transient response of the TLM 102. Where the TLM102 really shines is with vocals and speech. It has a slight boost above 6 kHz providing excellent vocal presence in an overall mix. Up to 6 kHz the frequency response is extremely linear, ensuring minimal coloration and a clearly defined, extended bass range. The capsule has an elastic suspension system reducing handling and structure-borne noise. A pop screen integrated into the grille serves to suppress plosives in vocal and speech recording. Due to its price and flexible field of application, the TLM 102 is ideal for home recording and project studio, as well the broadcasting area, especially when clear lines of sight to the speakers are a priority. The TLM 102 is available in black and nickel; a stand mount is included.

The TLM 103 is one of the standards for home recording and the music industry. It is the ideal large diaphragm microphone for all professional and semi-professional applications requiring the utmost in sound quality on a limited budget. By utilizing the tried and true transformerless circuit found in numerous Neumann microphones, the TLM 103 features ultra low self-noise coupled with high sound pressure level capability. The cardioid capsule, derived from the legendary U 87, is acoustically well-balanced and provides extraordinary attenuation of signals from the rear. Because of it’s universal cardioid pattern, straightforward handling, extremely low self-noise level, the TLM 103 is an ideal choice for all demanding applications. This include home recording, professional broadcasting and commercial recording studios. The TLM 103 is equipped with a large diaphragm capsule with cardioid pattern. This pattern, used in most studio recording situations, attenuates unwanted rear sound while off-axis sounds are rendered naturally. This also leads to high feedback suppression for use in live situations or where loudspeaker playback is a factor. The TLM 103 is addressed from the front, marked with the red Neumann logo on the microphone body. The K 103 large capsule diaphragm is based on the K 87, well known from the legendary U 67 / U 87 microphones. It has has a flat frequency response up to about 5 kHz, and above that, a wide flat 4 dB presence boost. The large wire mesh headgrille protects the capsule from plosive sounds and effectively prevents pop noises. The TLM 103 is an excellent choice for versitlity, performanc and long-term value.
