Neumann KMS 105 MicrophoneDesigned with superlative vocal reproduction in mind, the KMS 105 brings Neumann quality to the demanding sound reinforcement environment. With its supercardioid polar pattern, low self noise, and uncolored off-axis pickup, the KMS 105 complements in-ear monitor systems. By employing a unique 4-layer acoustic filter, the KMS 105 minimizes popping and wind noise, and with special mechanical and electrical filters, handling noise is virtually eliminated. Because of the superior resolution and linear frequency response, it is very easy for the artist using the KMS 105 to identify whether he or she is "on mic."The Neumann KMS 105 has become an internationally recognized standard in the field of high-quality stage microphones. An excellent vocal mic that truly gives the Neumann Sound on stage, it excels as a live and studio microphone for speech, acoustic-stringed instruments and brass. Very high SPL capabilities, low handling noise, a tight supercardioid polar pattern, excellent feedback rejection, and uncolored off-axis response make this a professional choice that is easy to use and a pleasure to record with. Features:- Supercardioid polar pattern with excellent feedback rejection
- Excellent transparency for vocals/speech
- Without off-axis coloration
- Transformerless output
- Effective pop shielding without any side effects
- Set includes stand clamp
- Low self-noise and crosstalk behavior -- ideal for use with in-ear monitoring systemsCommon Applications:- Vocals and speech on stage
- Announcer's mic for broadcasting/dubbing
- Especially suited for in-ear-monitoring
- Excellent stage condenser for feedback-prone environmentsThe Neumann Sound on StageCompared to other handheld vocal microphones, the KMS 105 offers a superior resolution of the voice, with extended frequency response and accurate transient detail. Sibilance problems common to other handheld condenser mics are eliminated. No foam is used in the basket, thus eliminating any "clouding" or "muffling" of the sound. Also, by using a DC-polarized studio condenser capsule, all the nuances of the voice come through with subtlety, power, and focus. Supercardioid CapsuleWith its supercardioid characteristic, the KMS 105 is particularly good at suppressing sounds originating from the entire 180-degree hemisphere behind the microphone. The K 105 capsule was developed from the K 50, found in the KMS 150, KM 150, and KM 185 microphones. The K 105 features a supercardioid pattern, achieved by specially modifying the response of the K 50 pressure gradient transducer. The frequency response characteristic is developed in the acoustic realm, allowing for accurate representation of transient details found in music and speech, and thus transmitting a very "open" and detailed capture of the human voice. Due to the tight supercardioid polar pattern and the coloration-free off axis response, a very high level of gain before feedback is achieved. This polar pattern offers the highest degree of isolation while still allowing for a generous "sweet spot" in front of the microphone.Wide Dynamic RangeThe dynamic range of the KMS 105 is 132 dB, allowing reproduction of the artist's full expression, without restraint. The maximum SPL is 150 dB and with a low self noise of 18 dB-A, a greater gain can be used without risk of adding noise to the mix. This way, the artist is able to use the microphone at a greater distance -- therefore maintaining a wide range of creative freedom during the performance. Great for Use with In-ear MonitorsBecause of the superior resolution and linear high frequency response, it is very e
