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.
NEUMANN - THE ORIGIN OF ALL STUDIO MICROPHONES
Neumann – A company with a long history
The company headquarters continues to be located in Berlin, where the company is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2018.
As of a few years ago, manufacturing in ultraclean room conditions which meet the highest international standards is carried out in Wedemark, near Hannover, Germany. Despite all the progress in machines and production technology, manufacturing a high-quality microphone involved a great deal of handicraft, upon which the quality of these transducers and a reputation such as Neumann's ultimately depend. To meet the operating conditions encountered in the studio the microphones are subject to testing throughout their manufacture. The capsules alone undergo more than 50 different tests before final assembly.
