NEUMANN BCM 705 Microphone

Emotion conveyed with technical perfection. This is the ideal which the Neumann microphones in the Broadcast Line have been designed to fulfill. The fine-tuning to the requirements of professional broadcast studios and the individual, functionally optimized design* ensure that these are microphones of character.

The BCM 705 is Neumann’s first dynamic microphone. The housing and headgrille are identical to those of the Neumann BCM 104; only the green logo indicates that this is something new from Neumann. The principle of reduction to the essentials can be seen in the dynamic capsule with a hypercardioid directional characteristic, specifically designed for speech reproduction at close range. Multi-level isolation from structure-borne noise ensures operation free of interference, even in a lively studio environment.

Announcers Microphone for Broadcast and Studio applications
This is just one of the most common applications. We recommend additional experimentation to gain maximum use from this microphone.


The microphone headgrille twists off easily for quick cleaning. Neumann offers optional color-coded headgrilles so that, for reasons of hygiene, each announcer can use his or her individual headgrille. In front of the capsule, mounted on a frame holder, a fine gauze serves as a built-in popscreen. The microphones of the Broadcast Line have an elastic mount against structure-borne noise, that is compatible with standard broadcast-segment microphone arms.


A pop screen not only prevents the occurrence of plosive pop noises in vocal recordings, but also efficiently prevents unwanted particles, from respiratory moisture, nicotine, to food remnants, from settling on the diaphragm. The pop screen can be removed for cleaning without the use of tools.


The preferred mode of operation is to suspend the Neumann BCM 705 or Neumann BCM 104 from a standard studio boom arm. A thread adapter to fit different connector threads is included. In order to provide protection from structure-borne noise, both the capsule and the microphone in its mount are elastically suspended. The optional Neumann SG 5 swivel mount allows additional angling of the microphone by +/-90 degrees.


The frequency response has a light treble boost, in the region from 2 kHz to 9 kHz, aiding the speech intelligibility. The bass frequency response is designed to compensate for the overemphasis of the bass caused by the proximity effect.
