The Telefunken ELA M251E is a high-end studio microphone.

Arguably one of the finest microphones ever produced, the TELEFUNKEN ELA M 251E has been featured on countless hits and classic recordings over the decades. Today, the finest examples of the ELA M 250 / 251 (E and non-E) microphones have become rare and highly sought after gems, fetching tens of thousands of dollars on the vintage market.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's historic recreations of the ELA M 251E exemplify the best qualities of the finest specimens of these legendary beasts, and are true to the legacy of their 50+ year old brothers.
Sound characteristics
With its smooth, yet present and open sound character, the ELA M 251E large-diaphragm tube microphone is a true classic with few rivals. Ideal for vocals and acoustic instruments, the ELA M 251E offers full, focused bass, detailed mids and silky highs.

Circuit Design
The TELEFUNKEN ELA M 251E features a double backplate, peripherally terminated CK12 capsule capable of cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional polar patterns, a 6072A vacuum tube and a Haufe T14/1 output transformer (the same as the AKG Acoustics GmbH C12). Modern component choices allow for tighter tolerances, better current handling and lower self-noise than their vintage counterparts. Each reissue is faithful in every detail to the original (parts are interchangeable with the 50+ year old originals), and offers the same opulent sonic response that has made the ELA M 251E one of the most sought-after recording tools in the world.

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's recreation of the ELA M 251E large diaphragm tube microphone is exact in every detail, right down to the historically accurate cosmetic finish and structural design. The amplifier circuit containing the vacuum tube and output transformer is housed in a moulded plastic case, while the capsule is suspended from a movable polar pattern switch located in the headgrille. The classic TELEFUNKEN diamond logo is embossed on the front of the microphone and the ELA M model name is engraved on the base of the grille.
