The 107 has a totally new capsule that's designed to reduce the affect of moisture and humidity, but the cool thing is that it sports a new "navigation" switch that allows you to change the pickup pattern, attenuation, and rolloff. It's also a multi-pattern mic with omni, sub-omni, cardioid, hypercardioid and figure 8 available. The frequency pattern looks to be really flat with a high-end bump, but some engineers who prefer their mics with more color won't find that attractive.
The price is pretty good though, coming in at "under $2,000" according to Neumann. The TLM 107 is available at the end of November.
