In celebration of its 75th anniversary, Neumann is offering the M 149 Jubilee Microphone, an exclusive, platinum-edition microphone. The M 149 Jubilee's finish is reminiscent of the U47, the head grille and lower part of microphone sport the high-quality platinum finish and the body is the traditional Neumann nickel finish. With the company's "75 Years" logo engraved on the front, all microphones bear consecutive serial numbers up to 500.

The microphones are available as a complete mono or stereo set with high-polish elastic suspensions and vintage power supply units with hammer finish. They come in a high-quality protective aluminum case that can be personalized with the owner's name and microphone serial number engraved on a special metal plate.

"This unique platinum-edition microphone is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to celebrate the colorful history and heritage of Neumann," said Jeff Alexander, Sennheiser's director of distributed brands. "While the M 149 Jubilee is certainly a museum-quality keepsake, we hope our customers will use it as they would any other Neumann. After all, it's the remarkable audio performance of these mics that truly defines what our company is all about."
