Title: beyerdynamic TG V71d Review
Author: Lennart Scheuren
Translated from the original German article
Regarding the processing, you are always in good hands with products from beyerdynamic, which is here the case as well. The conical shape of the shaft is due to the new design and also provides for inexperienced singers that these do not cover the microphone grille with their hand and produce accidental feedback (in addition to the poorer sound by reflections).
The handling is assessed overall as good and regarding handling noise, the beyerdynamic TG V71d can convince – in our tests they are not noticed. Weighing 345 grams, this dynamic microphone does not necessarily belong to the lightweights, but has a very valuable look and feel.
It should also be noted that the sound felt a class better than with the smaller TG V50d model. There are more mids to hear and the lateral colour is not so strong. The lack of proximity effect makes this microphone not so sensitive to changes in the distance to the mouth. "
Conclusion: With the beyerdynamic TG V71d the manufacturer from Heilbronn, Germany has launched a vocal microphone that can meet professional demands. Currently this model is available for 179.00 Euro on the market and offers a top sound as well as a beautiful appearance - a winning combination to present oneself on a stage. It is precisely the lack of proximity effect which makes this model very interesting for all singers who need to hold the microphone very close to the mouth to enforce themselves in the mix against loud instruments.
Regarding the sound I find the microphone very well (...). For the band rehearsal room, the dynamic microphone is almost too bad, but it surely resists the stresses and a hard handling in the rehearsal room or on stage during a live gig without any efforts. I give four and a half stars out of five for the beyerdynamic TG V71d.
