The U 87 is probably the best known and most widely used Neumann studio microphone.
It is equipped with a large double-diaphragm capsule with omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8 polar patterns, which can be selected using a switch on the capsule head. A switch on the back causes a 10 dB pre-attenuation. As a result, the microphone can transmit sound pressure levels of up to 127 dB without distortion. Furthermore, the frequency response can be lowered in the lows, e.g. to compensate for the proximity effect.
