The TECnology Hall of Fame honors and recognizes audio products and innovations that have made a significant contribution to the advancement of audio TECnology. Presented by the NAMM Museum of Making Music, TECnology Hall of Fame inductees are selected by a panel of more than 50 recognized audio experts, including authors, educators, engineers and other professionals.

beyerdynamic’s M 160 is a dynamic double ribbon microphone featuring a hyper cardioid polar pattern, which means it strongly rejects sounds emanating from behind the microphone and at its sides. M 160 features a noise attenuation of 25 dB at 110-degrees, broad frequency sensitivity ranging from 40Hz to 18kHz, and characteristically natural sound, making it the ideal solution for string instruments, such as violins, violas, cellos and guitars.
Eddie Kramer, famed producer-engineer, recorded Jimi Hendrix’s vocals and amplifier with the beyerdynamic M 160 to eliminate the amount of drum and bass bleed into Hendrix’s live signal. Additionally, record producer Andy Johns selected the M 160 to obtain John Bonham’s massive drum tone for Led Zeppelin’s hit, “When The Levee Breaks.” Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin are just two of the many success stories of the beyerdynamic M 160.
