beyerdynamic MC-930 Stereo Set

StereosetConsisting of:

  • 2x Condenser Microphones Beyerdynamic MC-930
  • 2x Windscreen WS 53
  • 2x elastic suspension EA 19/25
  • Case

The MC 930 stereo set consists of two paired MC 930s and includes as an accessory two elastic suspensions EA 19/25 and two suitable windshield WS 53. The set is situated in a robust transport case made of ABS plastic. This also offers additional space for the variable stereo rail MAV 802 or other accessories.

The characteristics of the MC 930 are the large transmission range of 40-20,000 Hz and a noise voltage separation of 71 dB. The MC 930 is ideal for recording choral, orchestral and solo instruments. Due to the switchable pre-attenuation of 15 dB, it is also ideally suited for use at very high sound pressure levels.

The switchable depth reduction with 6 dB / octave at 250 Hz compensates the close-up effect. Together with the WS101 windscreen, the MC 930 can be used as a microphone for vocal applications and as a microphone. The MC 930 works on a phantom power of 11 - 52 V and can therefore also be used in live as well as in installations. Due to its frequency-independent renal characteristics, the MC 930 has an excellent directivity in conjunction with high backward cancellation. Not only does it become a first-rate tool in the studio, it also makes it suitable for applications where sound quality and maximum feedback reliability are important. With an MC 930 microphone pair, ideal stereo recordings can be implemented in the XY or ORTF method. Therefore, the MC 930 is also available as a stereo set with two matching microphones and useful accessories in a sturdy plastic case.

  • For chorus, overhead and instrument pickup
  • Characteristics: Cardioid
  • Frequency response: 40 - 20000 Hz
  • Sound pressure Max 125 dB (140 dB with pre-attenuation)

VERY HAPPY with these mic's!
Thobias, 14.10.2019
Very very happy with these microphones. Had lots of (vintage) MK84's before. Sold them years ago to be able to buy other stuff. Always regretted it. Although I found them rather harsh (even the vintage ones...) I had nice results when recording acoustic guitars. (Often tempered some hight frequencies). All is a matter of taste of course. Personally I do not like the aggressive high freq's, which you hear so often in modern music. Bought the Beyerdynamic MC 930 's after reading lot's of reviews. Really really like them. More natural, less high and furthermore less expensive. If I had the choice between the MK84's and the MC-930, I would without a doubt buy the MC-930. Also bought the M201TG, which I also love very much. BD make nice microphones!
PRO: superb built quality, good value for money, great sound!
CONS: none so ever.

A great pair of microphones for recording acoustic guitars
MaVr, 08.01.2015
Beyerdynamic MC-930 Stereo Set provides a great pair of microphones for stereo recording of acoustic guitars (I believe there are a number of other possible applications, like overheads, choir recording, orchestra recording,... but I need them primarily for recording acoustic guitar in stereo).

Mics are extremely sturdy, really excellent build quality. They have two switches, one for -15dB pad and another for 250Hz low-cut filter. The later is quite uesful for stripping off the 'boomy' frequencies when recording guitars,... I connect both mics with low-cut filter to my Apogee Duet and through that I can get guitar tracks which need almost no post processing. The recorded sound is excellent,... well, probably there are other mics that to sharp ears may sound better, but the response provided by Beyerdynamic MC-930, at their cost is, IMHO, impossible to beat.

Mics are delivered and can be stored when not in use in a secure box, along with shock mounts and foam wind shileds. I believe Beyerdynamic should include into this box also a "Stereo Bar", something like K&M 23550, for easier setup for XY stereo recording,... - funnily, there is a room for such bar in the fom inside the box, it is only that there was no bar supplied,... well, I just ordered it for a couple of Euros and now I am all set,.... and yes, that bar fits nicely in the Beyerdynamic MC-930 stereo Set box.

Edan, 01.12.2014
I had a problem with XLR cable not fitting properly and crackling noise from the first pair, but the replacements have caused no issues so far.

The build quality is excellent and I can't imagine how you'd break them. The included shockmount system is excellent, really compact compared to a normal shockmount but still very effective. I would recommend getting a stereo bar as they work well in XY and ORTF configurations.

Soundwise, the mids are very full. It can be a bit overwhelming sometimes depending on your room and the instrument being recorded. They don't seem to suffer from proximity effect as much as other SDC's I've tried which is great for picking up a full kit sound with just overheads. I've found them to work best on stringed instruments as opposed to percussion, but I tend to prefer LDC's on drums for my taste.

Overall, great mic's which definitely have they're own unique voicing. I'd recommend trying out the competitors in this price range and deciding what you like best.

Outstanding Clarity with No Harshness
gaonick, 04.01.2018
I bought these to use as a pair for recording acoustic guitars, but have found they work well as vocal mics as well. They have a superbly clear sound without the excessive brightness of the Neumann KM184s and the modern AKG mics, and they're also far cheaper than the Neumanns. I can't recommend them highly enough for acoustic guitar especially. Here are a couple of links to songs recorded on these (the acoustic guitar only, the voice was recorded on a Pearl CC22. These were recorded in a small room with awful acoustics using an SE reflection screen, and the quality of the mics really shines though even in that situation.
