Excellent for acoustic instruments....
Anonymous 15.03.2017
Having previously owned the TLM103 and knowing how good that mic was I was not sure whether the TLM102 would work for me. Having used them on several recording sessions I can now say that I am more than happy with the sound from these microphones. I'm sure there are many applications for them however my particular interest is in recording acoustic (folk) instruments in as clear a manner possible. I had tried several of the AKG large diaphragm microphones (AKG C3000 and AKG P220) and was not completely happy with the colouring of the sound and decided to try the TLM102's as a half way between the AKG's and the more expensive TLM103. As I needed 2 mics, cost was important which is why I opted for the TLM102's. I can't be happier with the decision and I hope this helps someone else who may have a similar application/requirement.

One of the drawbacks of these microphones is that they are incredibly sensitive which is great but this means that the recording environment needs to be very quiet and it also took a few attempts to get the best mic positioning to avoid unwanted room noise and also unwanted bleed from other instruments. I don't have the facility to completely isolate sounds within the studio so this took some testing to find out what could work and what was simply not possible without a recording booth. It also presents a nice problem when mixing as you can really hear the difference in the clean sound which subsequently makes mixing much more straightforward. I'd strongly recommend these microphones.

Great Entry into Neumann Microphones
kamsan 01.09.2021
A very noticeable upgrade in sound compared to my previous condenser mic, and the raw sound blends easily into the mix due to its ‘flatter’ sound. It has a slight Neumann coloration to the sound despite being the most affordable TLM model as of this review. It is quite warm in the low mids, and you definitely want a low cut filter if you want to be close to the mic. The lack of high boost compared to the TLM 103 means you can further saturate the sound, which still creates a smooth and musical sound that is not harsh and still tickles my ears in a nice way.
I do not recommend modding the mic by taking out the foam filter from the head, as the sound characteristics do not noticeably change and the 2-layers mesh isn’t that fine either, which may introduce dust on the capsule overtime.
The cardioid pattern does change the sound characteristic of the source noticeably when slightly off axis, so care is needed to ensure singer or instrument do not sway too much.

Best low budget condenser I had
Anonymous 22.08.2016
I checked threds on many discussion forums before I bought it and it has position feedback buy its users. For small recording studio it is great mic with great built quality. It has neutral sound and it works nice for voiceovers I usually record. Very low self-noise and good organic sound not so sterile like other ones I checked.

TLM 102

Well what can I say?

This small mic WILL BLOW YOU MIND.
Have end up using it for vocals, brass instruments, guitars and bass cabs.... pretty much I use this mike all the time. Yes you can get a more versatile mic at this price range, but if you want the neumann sound and build quality you will not be disappointed. 5 stars!!

I like it so much I did a video review of the 102 with some audio samples.
