The Brauner VM1 KHE Klaus Heyne Edition is a limited edition (100 ever produced) large diaphragm tube condenser microphone. Built on the basic platform of Brauner's standard VM1 microphone, each KHE was hand-tuned and highly modified by world renowned microphone technician Klaus Heyne of German Masterworks.

The power supply's -10dB attenuation switch was replaced with a Cardioid-only switch, which turned off the rear of the capsule and increased sensitivity and gave a more true cardioid polar pattern. The MBHO-manufactured capsule from the stock VM1 was replaced with one to Mr. Heyne's specifications which reduced phase shift between the two backplates. Electronic components were upgraded wherever possible to use larger, more expensive components in a circuit which, compared to the standard VM1, is simplified. Even the mesh layers of the headbasket are different in this KHE model.

Each microphone was hand-tuned to a particular sound that the original customer was aiming for. Unless matched by Klaus Heyne during ordering, no two VM1 KHE are exactly the same.
