Omnidirectionalbeyerdynamic MC 910

Omnidirectional Pencil Condenser Microphone

The MC 910 is a small-diaphragm, omni condenser mic designed for accurate, transparent sound. It is part of beyerdynamic’s “MC 900” series, which began with the MC930 Cardioid. The MC 910 and MC 950 were introduced at trade shows in 2008 and became available for retail sale in early 2009.

All three of the SDCs in this series use transformerless, electronically-balanced output circuits.

The mic’s frequency response is flat from 50Hz to 4kHz. A presence peak described as a “slight treble boost” appears as a smooth +4dB peak from 7kHz&endash;11kHz; the mic’s HF -3dB point is at 20kHz.

The mic’s capsule is said to be the same as found in the MC 930, apart from the pickup pattern. The electronics in all three MC900-series mics are identical.

All three of these mics have a sintered covering in lieu of a traditional mesh grille. This cover does not need any supporting infrastructure between itself and the diaphragm. As a result, the diaphragm can be mounted closer to the end of the microphone body, avoiding the reflection problems caused by having the outer circumference of the microphone body extend past the diaphragm.

A pair of switches on the mic body provide a -15dB pad and a high-pass filter.

The beyerdynamic MC 910 is also known as: MC910.

The mic was released in 2008.
