Re: KMS 104 vs KMS 105

The 104 is cardioid and the 105 is hyper-cardioid - the main difference is in the directivity.

The 104 PLUS may be the better bet for your daughter as it has an extended bottom end. It was originally designed with female vocalists in mind, but so many male singers also liked the PLUS version that the female bit is not pressed so hard now.

The PLUS version (also cardioid, of course) has a different pop filter - it is foamed internally and has extra "blast" protection in front of the diaphragm to minimise the effect of plosives.

A cardioid mic. may also be better for somone who is not well versed in mic. technique, as the sound won't drop-off so fast if you wave it about a little.
