Details

For 50 years the U 87 has been setting standards in the field of audio recording. Neumann celebrates the anniversary of this studio legend with a very special limited edition, the U 87 Rhodium Edition – a microphone that looks as classy as it sounds.

Many products introduced in the history of the company have become milestones of professional audio technology. It is no accident that when listing their equipment, audio studios almost always put Neumann microphones at the top of the list – they are a recognized sign of a highly professional operation.

Microphones with highest sound quality
Neumann gives the customer the certainty of acquiring a product with unsurpassed sound quality, reliability and lasting value, an investment that usually survives several generations of audio engineers. Although Neumann microphones certainly are not cheap, professionals know from their daily experience that they are worth the cost. Many owners of home recording studios also dream of having “a real Neumann” of their own.
