The BCM 104 is the first condenser microphone developed by Georg Neumann GmbH for radio announcers and DJ’s. The BCM 104 was introduced in 2003. It uses a large diaphragm cardioid K 04 capsule (a modified K 07 type) having a proximity compensation speech-optimized design. The head grille has a quick-release arrangement to allow easy cleaning or replacement for individual use, with integrated built-in pop screen filter. The external shape is optimized for radio broadcasting standard table booms. The microphone uses transformer-less technology design for very low self-noise (7 dBA) and very high max SPL (138 dB). A subsonic filter cuts frequencies below 20 Hz while a switchable – 14 dB pad and a 100 Hz low-cut filter are hidden inside the microphone.. The frequency response is optimized for best human speech intelligibility, with a little boost around 4 kHz and treble lift above 10 kHz. A built-in elastic mount suppresses borne noises from the boom.
