Neumann BCM 705 Mic Dynamic
Neumann’s BCM 705 is a dynamic hypercardioid microphone that features the same sound as the company’s 104 condenser microphone, at a fraction of the cost. The microphone itself is mechanically suspended in a way that reduces sensitivity to stand movement and handling shocks, which helps to prevent any unnecessary noise in the recording process. Lower frequencies are enhanced via an enlarged and acoustically coupled capsule, which was made from a design based around the Profi Power Sennheiser MD 431 handheld stage microphone. An integrated pop screen helps build resistance to wind, while still promoting clear high-frequency response. The BCM is designed for close mic techniques, but it can also work when placed slightly further from the audio source.
