The KK 13 captures the signature sound of acoustic instruments in a remarkably open and natural way. The omnidirectional characteristic makes the KK 13 particularly suitable for quiet stages and recording scenarios where feedback and separation are not an issue. It overcomes former limitations of the electret principle to deliver a wide bass and mid-range without proximity effect, and a confident elegance in the treble. From quiet nuances to the peak dynamics of a strong fortissimo: With an extremely high maximum SPL, the KK 13 is open to all details.


To get there, Neumann engineers rethought the production process for electret-based microphones. Where classic solutions rely on highly integrated designs, Neumann chose a layered structure. Every module of the KK 13 (omni) and KK 14 (cardioid) is built and designed to deliver the perfect result. The components are then assembled by hand in Germany. This eliminates typical compromises and opens the spectrum for formerly unmatched acoustic qualities. While the titanium housing is one ingredient to a road-tough design, it is also an expression of the inner elegance in design and engineering.


The layered design also delivers a yet unheard level of tonal consistency ‒ every capsule sounds exactly the same. It saves engineers the time needed for basic EQing and delivers consistent sound right from the early soundcheck.

As a part of the Neumann Miniature Clip Mic MCM System, the new series comes with an unparalleled low cost of ownership. The system is designed for years instead of just a season. Its modular design also allows for easy replacements. Nine mounting clips allow for reliable positioning on any instrument while staying gentle to every surface. The system connects to all the important wireless systems and includes cable options for a 3.5 mm jack, Lemo, 4-pin mini-XLR, MicroDot, or wired connection.
