The microphone M 297 is in addition to the metal diaphragm microphone family which includes M 294/ 295 and M 296. The reliable microphone capsule M 70 forms a unit with the modified microphone preamplifier MV 200. These microphones are designed for universal applications in professional recording and sound reinforcement and meet the requirements of modern technology.

The developed, transformerless circuit design substitutes the previous transformer for a symmetrical output stage. Its intrinsic noise and remarkable output capability emphasize the advantages of the microphone capsule M70. A microphone capsule with an extremely thin metal diaphragm enables brilliant sound transmission. It is possible to activate a 10 dB attenuator pad for handling very high sound pressure levels. A sensitivity reduction for low frequencies can be utilized to suppress the proximity effect.
