Hello all,

does anyone use these microphones and/ or has the original Beyerdynamic
specs?

Beyerdynamic M 201 N (C).02

On the web I could find tese informations:

- has bass roll of, not switchable (?)
- other then that no difference to the M 201 N (C), except the silver
finish

I need to know

1. if the bass roll of is indeed NOT switchable
2. the cut off frequency

Any help greatly appreciated.

archives (!), people I talked to had no clue this microphone exists...

The (C) means that it has an XLR connector. I'm not sure what the -02
means. It might be the silver finish, though I've never seen an M210 in
other than basic black.

The M201 is a decent general purpose hypercardioid mic. According to
the frequency response plot in the catalog, there's a bit of a bass
rolloff. It's down 2 dB at 100 Hz, and about 5 dB at 50 Hz. The high
end starts rising about 1.5 kHz, it's about +2 dB at 3 kHz, then rises
another 2 dB and is smooth between 5 and 10 kHz. There's another 2 dB
hump at around 16 kHz and then it starts rollling off.

There is no bass rolloff switch, nor do I think that it needs one.

As usual, if you're thinking about buying one, ask the seller exactly
what he has for sale. Just because you show some interest doesn't mean
the price will go up. <g>

I'd say it's one of the best dynamic instrumental mics out there...

Mike&Daniel, thanks for your replies. I know the M 201 N pretty well, I
worked with them in live and recording situations. The ".02" means it
HAS a steep bass roll off ("Trittschallfilter" as it is called in
German), but I want to know at what exact frequency the roll off
starts, and if it has a switch to turn it on & off.

I'm awaiting a response by Beyerdynamic, but from previous requests I
know their pretty s l o w when you ask them for information about older
products. Hence I started this thread.

Anyone out there who owns the ".02" version of this mic and who might
have the manual & specs...?

Cheers, Fabian

Which Beyerdynamic location? Right here at the German Headquarter...
but meanwhile I got a useful response from a member of gearslutz.com:

M 201 N (C).02

roll off not switchable
roll off starts at 80Hz

that's all I needed to know... maybe this will be of any use for
somebody else one day :-)

I wonder if he was looking at the 02 specifically. The graph that I
described could be described as "roloff starts at 80 Hz" as well. So
maybe that's not all you need to know, but now you know it twice.

Mike, yes, I was looking specifically for the ".02" specs, for what
makes that model different compared to a M 201 N. I think that was
clear in the first post, sorry if it wasn't.

You're right, the M 201 N graph could be described with a soft roll off
around 80 Hz.

I will try to get the original ".02" graph send to me to see what's
going on there around 80 Hz.
