I actually like the look. I just hope it's not a repeat of the TLM103. The 102 wasn't a total dog, but the 103 is not my favorite mic for a reason. It's just too strident.

Definitely very curious about this mic. I gawked at it when I first saw it, but by the end of reading this thread I've actually warmed up to it a bit! I really like the sound of the TLM102 and I've been thinking of picking up a pair in the upcoming months, but it certainly would be nice if this were just a multi-pattern version. Twice the price of the cardioid only version seems like stretching it though, seems like if that were the case it'd be priced a bit lower, so I'm assuming the differences between the 102 and the 107 in cardioid will come out in time. I'd love to hear some samples.

I'd like to keep a TLM102 in my pocket at all times. Maybe use it as a keychain.

I don't like mics with these weird digital switches and a bunch of LEDs. I hate the 414s with that pushbutton interface...

I was going to mention that. At least they say that the 107 will retain it's last setting when you power it on each time. I still don't like the idea of it though. A mechanical switch is at least generally a somewhat simple and easy repair, even if it doesn't have lights and bells and ringtones and all the things mic companies apparently think we want these days.

ok ok, but what does it sound like?

Isn't it available yet? I'd consider one if I could hear it on spoken word.

I kinda like this video that soundpure put out. They have others for the 107 as well. Sounds warm and smooth. Not sparkly or forward like the 103. Pretty good, not "wowing" me though.

Has anyone here purchased or worked extensively with one? I am really interested in this mic. I use a TLM 103 on guitar amps, and I wondering how this mic compares. This mic appears to have the potential to be a workhorse for a variety of sources.

It seems not many people on gearslutz have taken the plunge on this microphone. I wonder if this is more along the lines tonally as the tlm170? I found that microphone to be extremely natural and honest sounding, great for indie folk songs

Usually when I want to seriously test drive a mic I rent one for a day. None for rent in LA (yet).

I agree, the TLM 103 is a bit too harsh for vocals (IMO), but I love that mic up against a tube amp.

I'm hoping this is a contender for workhorse studio mic. Let's get some more impressions!

Thanks Matt. Hoping the mic will come next week. If lucky will have a chance to record some voiceovers and some male lead vocals, and acoustic gtrs.. Gonna record thru X32 Rack and Mbox Pro to PT, depending the studio room.. I have used mainly an AKG C214 and an Avantone CV12 so I guess 107 will add nicely some transparency, hopefully. i like those both too, maybe a bit coloured.. As I mentioned I am abs. no gear freak.. Just want to get the job done.

Cheers!

The Mutt Really is impressed and above all digs the TLM107 big time.

Last month………………
I had three intimate dates with the TLM107 at my local Guitar Center
that took place in one of their Iso booths using my Strat, my Motu
Traveler & my Macbook Pro.

Using their TLM107, a boom stand and one of their Fender 65 Deluxe
reverb amp, I cloistered-up in their Iso booth and was able to comfortably
play and record using the TLM107 with the unbridled ability to easily
experiment by changing up and vary the mics position etc!. All & all
I was able to chalk up around three hours of productive recording time,
which was played back and analyzed at a later date.

The recorded playbacks were very precise and clear to my ears.
The Function new featured control joystick and the new capsule
are with out a doubt the "Cream in my Coffee".

I am going to purchase this mic as a self birthday present, Despite the fact
that I actually build custom mics for a living, and I don’t mean mod’ing doner
bodies and that kind of stuff which I enjoy that the “State-of-the-art” is such
at this time to allow for budget conscience individuals the ability to assemble
pretty good pro audio grade recording equipment these days.

I myself have several industrial CNC milling machines which allow me to
replicate just about any doable component that I might need. However
I mostly replicate and or design old school style analog tube audio equipment
with a twist.

It’s a definite Yes! for the Neumann TLM107………..

Just called there and they said they have not got them in yet and they won't see any until May. Are you sure it was the TLM107 you tried?

Yes, I am absolutely sure, you may have been mislead due to company policy.
I was even offered to purchase one "on the spot" at an AES expo late last year,
So Neumann was hawking them just less than a year ago at certain venues,
under certain conditions. A marketing technique that goes beyond gifting
products (pre official release) to famous Engineers, Producer & Musicians etc!.
Also certain Music stores receive prod before "said" release date. I just called
a friend at Sweetwater, and was told that they have a few on hand for prized
customers.
