More about the KMS Series

While live microphones usually operate with dynamic capsules, we designed the KMS series as “studio sound for the stage”. That’s why we chose condenser capsules. Due to their construction they capture the voice more vividly, with greater detail and a wider frequency response. This uncolored high definition sound doesn’t only convince on stage, it also delivers reference class sound in the home studio for vocals, acoustic guitars, and brass instruments with superior elegance and transparency.

 

Three Versions for a Tailor-Made Solution

The KMS 104 and KMS 104 plus are coming with a cardioid pattern which perfectly attenuates sound from the rear; the KMS 104 plus has a more prominent bass range and is especially optimised for female Rock and Pop voices. The supercardioid pattern of the KMS 105 attenuates sound from the sides and the rear, which makes it optimally suited for loud stage environments. All versions share a remarkably uncolored off-axis response – a great advantage, especially for in-ear monitoring on stage.

Features

  • Neumann sound with full stage capability
  • Precise reproduction of speech and vocals with excellent intelligibility.
  • Cardioid/supercardioid directionality with high feedback resistance
  • Uncolored off-axis response
Applications
  • Vocals and voice on stage and in the home studio
  • Voice recording for broadcast/film dubbing
  • Applications with a high risk of feedback

What others say

Reviews

“... dynamic range goes from a whisper to a roar. The response of this microphone to these nuances was impressive, to say the least.” “It is definitely a high-end microphone designed not to break the bank.”

Test in PRO AUDIO REVIEW

 

“ ... for the performer with clarity and articulation, the open and natural character that the 105 imparts to an outstanding vocal will be appreciated by those with the ears to hear it.”

Review in MIX MAGAZINE

 

“There are only a few mics that would make you just drop everything and buy one. I would say the Neumann KMS 105 is most definitely one of those few.”
