VM1


Bruce Swedien:
I tried the VM1 on a week of vocal recordings. I absolutely fell in love with it - it?s my new favorite vocal mic.

Friedrich Thein:
The VM1 is the essence of the advantages of a tube microphone without any of the disadvantages... an open door to sonic space.

Professional Audio Magazin:
The VM1 and VMX tube microphones are still the undisputed leaders of our reference list.

Fritz Fey / Studiomagazin:
To say that the vocal recording sounds even better than the original is to almost do justice to the VMX. It adds its own character without recognizably tainting the source. If you ask me, the VMX is a real masterpiece of microphone engineering.


VMA


Elliot Scheiner :
Never before did I come across a microphone of this caliber. The VMA is the best microphone I have ever worked with.

John Horesco IV (Jermaine Dupri, Janet Jackson, Usher, Mariah Carey, ...)
I would be honored to be mentioned on your website. I actually got a call today from a friend of mine who was working on a Janet Jackson mix that we had recorded vocals on and the producer, Rodney Jerkins, kept asking about the vocal sound, what mic we used, if it was a vintage mic, and how much were they. I had to smile when I told him it was not a vintage mic but a Brauner VMA! I LOVE my mic!


Review on ProAudioReview (external link)

Valvet


Keys magazine:
Detail resolution, depth, spatial reproduction and appreciable proximity are the strengths of the Valvet.


Phantom


Soundcheck:
The Phantom creates impressive character in every recording situation and portrays all of the instruments with amazing detail and excellent sound.

Keys magazine:
In comparison with other professional studio microphones, the Phantom V, like the AE, perform outstandingly: The (percieved) linearity with regards to frequency response and dynamic set the benchmark, the Brauner simply sounds closer to the original.


Phanthera


Review by Barry Rudolph, MIX magazine (external link)

Studiomagazin:
The Phanthera sounds very elegant and confident, [...] another first-class product [...] we can already predict that it will be a success story.
