Founded in Berlin in the year 1928 Neumann has had a long history of innovative products made to the highest standards and delivering the best sound possible. 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.

QUALITY AND PRECISION

As of a few years ago, manufacturing in ultraclean room conditions which meet the highest international standards is carried out in Wedemark, near Hannover. 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.
