Neumann U89 I MT Multi-pattern mic with K 89 capsule, five patterns

(Matte Black)

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

The U 89* is a studio microphone for universal applications. The headgrille protects a dual-diaphragm capsule. A rotary switch below the headgrille selects from five different polar patterns. Therefore the microphone can be adapted easily to large sound sources, and those that are spread wide apart, or to sound sources to be recorded at a greater distance. 

The amplifier accepts sound pressure levels up to 134 dB without distortion. This figure can be increased to 140 dB. An additional rotary switch activates a filter that changes the low frequency response either below 80 Hz or 160 Hz frequency.
Applications
The U 89 i is similar in appearance to the U 87. It is of smaller size, and lighter weight. It features five instead of three directional characteristics and a higher maximum sound pressure level which make this microphone easier adaptable to different applications.
Polar patterns
In addition to the usual directional polar patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8, we have added a hypercardioid and wide-angle cardioid characteristic. When compared to the standard cardioid pattern, the hypercardioid characteristic suppresses sound from the side more efficiently. The wide-angle polar pattern is especially useful to record large sound sources.
Acoustic features
The microphone is addressed from the front, marked with the Neumann logo. The large diaphragm capsule has a very smooth frequency response for all polar patterns over a wide acceptance angle. The frequency response curves are flat up to 10 kHz within a pickup angle of ± 100°. 

As a result the U 89 i has a very even diffuse-field response for all polar patterns. This is important in a reverberant environment when more reflections arrive at the microphone capsule. The acoustic information is not affected in its tonal quality when recorded by the microphone. 

This characteristic is achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects. 

The capsule it is elastically mounted to avoid any structure borne noise that could interfere with its operation.
Filter and attenuation
The amplifier handles sound pressure levels up to 134 dB without distortion. With a self noise level of 17 dB (A-weighted) the total dynamic range is 117 dB. Maximum sound pressure level is 140 dB when the - 6 dB rotary switch is in the ON position. 

A low frequency roll-off at 80 Hz or 160 Hz can be activated with another rotary switch below the headgrille. This filter suppresses low frequency interference, yet maintains an even frequency response for close-up sound sources, for example, when proximity effect could adversely affect the program material. 

A steep high-pass filter in the LIN position prevents the output transformer of the microphone from being overloaded due to undesired subsonic frequencies.
Operational safety
All exposed surfaces of the microphone capsule, including the diaphragms, are at ground potential. This technology makes them highly immune to electrical and atmospheric interference and contamination through microscopic dust particles.
 
*The design of the microphone is a registered design of the Georg Neumann GmbH in certain countries.

NEUMANN U 87AI-MT Multi-pattern mic with K 67 capsule, omni, Cardioid and figure 8 patterns, pad and filter in Woodbox (Matte Black)

The Industry-standard Large-diaphragm Condenser

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

The Neumann U 87 Ai is the modern incarnation of a classic microphone. Introduced in 1967, the U 87 gained instant favor with engineers, producers, and their clients; by the mid '70s it was a staple in every world-class recording studio. And it still is. Walk into a session, and you'll see 87s everywhere. On pianos, vocals, toms, overheads, guitar cabs, brass, strings, congas — you name it. The mic's popularity is easy to understand: it ushered in a new era of audio fidelity and reliability, and with three selectable polar patterns (cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8), plus a switchable highpass filter and 10dB pre-attenuation pad, the mic is incredibly versatile, and an ideal choice for a broad range of recording techniques. The Neumann U 87 Ai is the industry-standard large-diaphragm condenser mic. 

A great choice for most any source

When you're striving for fidelity, clarity, and authoritative presence, the U 87 Ai — with its ruler-flat midrange and gentle presence boost — is your go-to mic. We all need vocals to shine in the mix, and the 87 was born for this. It's not right for every vocalist, but you will find it the vocal microphone of choice on innumerable iconic recordings. Piano? Grand or upright, when you need an acoustic piano to sit pretty in a thick track, a couple of 87s will get the job done.

Switchable polar patterns

Offering a choice of three switchable polar patterns (omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8), the U 87 Ai gives you impressive flexibility when it comes to exploring different recording techniques. With two 87s, you can implement stereo techniques such as spaced pair (A/B), X-Y (including Blumlein), ORTF array, and mid-side (M-S). For full orchestra, add a third 87 for the minimalist — and highly effective — Mercury Living Presence technique: three spaced omni 87s across the orchestral soundstage, centered above the conductor's podium.

Updated with modern circuitry

Neumann produced the original U 87 from 1967 to 1986, when it was replaced by the current version, the U 87 Ai. The U 87 Ai features upgraded electronic components; however, the capsule design remains unchanged. The modern circuitry increases the mic's operational headroom by reducing the resistance through which the capsule bias voltage is supplied. This gives you 10dB higher sensitivity for identical sound pressure levels and improves the signal-to-noise ratio by 3dB.

Filter and attenuation

If you're using the U 87 Ai to capture a loud source, the microphone's switchable 10dB pre-attenuation pad comes in handy. With the pad activated, the mic accepts sound pressure levels up to 127dB — perfect for miking tom toms or a dimed guitar amp stack.

An additional switch engages the mic's low-frequency cutoff, which reduces undesirable mud and rumble at the input of the microphone amplifier. This setting also compensates for proximity effect, the bass boost that all pressure gradient transducers exhibit when placed very close to a source.

Neumann mics are not assembly-line products

In 1928, Georg Neumann founded the company that bears his name and introduced the first mass-produced condenser microphone, the CMV 3, a.k.a. the Neumann Bottle. Ever since, the Neumann badge has stood for unwavering quality. Neumann's instantly recognizable diamond is more than a corporate logo — it is a quality seal. Every microphone that bears it is testimony to this proud tradition. This level of excellence requires rigorous quality control to maintain Neumann's status as a leading manufacturer of studio microphones. Neumanns are not assembly-line products; they're handcrafted in Germany by highly skilled technicians.

Precision crafted for world-class performance

The distance between membrane and electrode of a mic capsule is 35 microns — less than the width of a human hair. The layer of gold applied to a U 87 Ai capsule diaphragm is just 0.03 microns thick, equivalent to 208 atoms of gold. Even minute levels of contamination can adversely affect sonic characteristics, which is why Neumann mics are assembled in a state-of-the-art clean room with monitored dust levels under 100 particles per cubic foot — suitable conditions for the production of semiconductor chips and heart catheters.

At D.O'B. Sound Pro , we know what it takes to become a world-class manufacturer. It's not enough to build one great mic; the real trick is to be able to supply the pro audio industry — year after year — with units that all sound identical. To this end, Neumann sets the tolerances of each microphone to the minimum possible variance as compared with an equivalent Neumann product. This is what some mic manufacturers do with matched pairs — but Neumann does it for all their microphones. So when you use two 87s to capture an accurate stereo image, you can do so with confidence.

Neumann TLM170 R MT "Multi-pattern mic with K 89 capsule, five Remote-controllable patterns, with tilting side Bracket"

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

The TLM 170 R condenser microphone is a large diaphragm microphone with multiple polar patterns. Its sound has a very transparent characteristic, in contrast to some of Neumann's other microphones that have a distinct personality.
As a result, the TLM 170 R is appropriate for many different applications in professional recording studios, broadcasting, film and television, and semiprofessional productions. The polar patterns can be selected either at the microphone itself, or controlled remotely through the special N 248 power supply.

Acoustic features
The large diaphragm capsule inside the grille has a very smooth frequency response for all polar patterns over a wide acceptance angle. The curves are flat and parallel to the 0 frequency curve up to 10 kHz within an angle of ± 100.

The TLM 170 R has a very even diffuse-field response for all polar patterns. This is important in a reverberant environment, as more reflections arrive at the microphone from different directions. The acoustic information is not affected in its tonal quality when recorded by the microphone. This characteristic is achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects.

Therefore, the microphone maintains an excellent impulse response reproducing all transient phenomena of music and speech without any coloration. The capsule is elastically mounted to avoid any structure borne noise that could interfere with its operation.

Polar patterns
In addition to the usual directional polar patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8, Neumann has added a hyper-cardioid and wide-angle cardioid characteristic. When compared to the standard cardioid pattern, the hyper-cardioid characteristic suppresses sound from the side more efficiently. The wide-angle polar pattern is especially useful to record large sound sources.

Remote control
The N 248 controls the polar pattern remotely by varying the phantom voltage. The range is ± 3 V of the nominal 48 V value. (According to DIN standard a range of ± 4 V is permissible.)

The rotary switch on the microphone must be in the position R (= remote control). In this switch position the TLM 170 R microphone analyses the absolute value of the phantom power and selects the corresponding polar pattern. A standard 3-pin microphone cable is used, similar to the microphone's conventional operation. Cable lengths may be up to 300 m (1000 feet).

Electrical features
The letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference, that may influence the balanced audio signal.

Use on tripods
The TLM 170 R is provided with a tilting side bracket to attach the microphone to booms or stands. The bracket is equipped with rubber elements that effectively protect the microphone from mechanical shock. If necessary, it can be mounted on the other side of the microphone as well.
When using the IC 4 cable (for example to suspend the microphone from the ceiling with the MNV 87 auditorium hanger), the bracket and its holder need to be removed. The microphone can then be connected to the swivel mount connector of the cable.

Filter and attenuation
The TLM 170 R microphone has a 10 dB attenuation switch to prevent the input of the following unit from being overloaded. A second switch at the rear attenuates the frequency response below 100 Hz to suppress undesired structure-borne noise.

Neumann TLM 49 SET Cardioid mic (Nickel) with K 49 capsule and vintage tube Character, includes EA 3 Shockmount in carton box

Neumann Tube Mic Sound in a Transformerless Condenser Mic

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

The TLM 49 is a large-diaphragm studio microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and a warm sound which is especially optimized for vocal performance. It is supplied as a set, with an elastic suspension. The TLM 49 design is inspired by that of the legendary M 49 and M 50 microphones of the 1950s. Naturally the TLM 49 has the typical Neumann fine matte nickel finish. The "sound design" is also oriented toward that of the M 49 and the U 47. By combining its retro look with proven Neumann transformerless circuit technology, this microphone ensures low self-noise and the use of high gain levels.

Neumann TLM 49 Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone at a Glance:

  • Ideal mic for vocal applications
  • Linear frequency response with slight boost above 2kHz
  • Transformerless design for low noise
  • Acoustically neutral headgrille and elastic inner mountings
  • Includes EA 3 shock mount

Ideal mic for vocal applications

During the development phase, the TLM 49's sound was adjusted in extensive practical tests, so as to make it ideal particularly for vocal and speech recording. However, in addition, it is also suitable for instrumental applications in professional production studios and demanding home recordings.

Linear frequency response with slight boost above 2kHz

The TLM 49 uses the famous K 47 capsule, which was also used in the M 49 and the U 47. The capsule has a linear frequency response up to the upper midrange. Above 2kHz there is a gentle presence boost up to 3dB. The large-diaphragm capsule of the TLM 49 provides a cardioid directional characteristic with a tendency toward supercardioid, due to the special capsule construction. Following the example of the M 49, high frequencies are more directional. The capsule diameter is 34 mm.

Transformerless design for low noise

The letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference that may influence the balanced audio signal. Noise signals which affect the balanced modulation line are therefore effectively suppressed. The TLM 49 can operate at sound pressure levels of up to 114dB without distortion, and provides a dynamic range of 102dB (A-weighted).

Acoustically neutral headgrille and elastic inner mountings

The TLM 49 capsule is enclosed by a large microphone headgrille, which is acoustically very open and is hence neutral with regard to the sound. The entire interior structure is mounted elastically, to prevent the transmission of structure-borne noise. In addition, the TLM 49 capsule is mounted with a rubber shock mount.

Includes EA 3 shock mount

Due to the wide frequency response, the TLM 49 can also transmit extremely low-frequency signals without coloration. Of course this means that the microphone is also sensitive to noise signals such as vibration noise and wind noise in this frequency range. The TLM 49 is therefore supplied with the elastic suspension EA 3, which effectively protects the microphone from structure-borne noise. If the microphone is addressed at extremely close range, pop screen PS 15 or PS 20 a can be used in front of the microphone to provide protection against plosive sounds.

Neumann TLM 49 Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone Features:

  • Transformerless large-diaphragm cardioid condenser mic
  • 34mm capsule diameter

Neumann TLM 193 Cardioid mic with K 89 capsule, includes SG 1 and Wood Box

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

 

The Neumann TLM193 Cardioid Mic with K89 Capsule, includes SG1 and Woodbox | Matte Black is a large diaphragm microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. With this microphone Neumann continues its long tradition, and is offering high end technology at an affordable price for musicians and the home recording studio. 

The microphone uses a transformerless circuit, featuring extremely low self noise and large dynamic range. 

The polar response is very linear over a wide incidence angle. Thus, even signals coming from the side are reproduced faithfully and without coloration. The exposed surface of the microphone capsule is at ground potential, making it immune to typical interference and contamination. The microphone is supplied with a swivel mount.

Applications

The TLM 193 is a microphone with cardioid characteristic for professional recording and live applications. It is the ideal microphone for professional productions, for musicians and project studios.

Polar pattern

The TLM 193 has a large diaphragm capsule with cardioid characteristic.

Acoustic features

The TLM 193 is addressed from the front, marked with the Neumann logo. The large diaphragm capsule inside the headgrille has a very smooth frequency response for all polar patterns over a wide acceptance angle. The curves are flat and parallel to the 0° frequency curve up to 10 kHz within a pickup angle of ± 100°. 

The TLM 193 differs from omnidirectional pressure transducers, where, due to physical reasons, the diffuse-field and free-field responses never agree. This microphone has a very even diffuse-field response for all polar patterns. This is important in a reverberant environment, as more reflections arrive at the microphone from different directions. 

The acoustic information is not affected in its tonal quality when recorded by the microphone. This characteristic is achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects. Therefore, the microphone maintains an excellent impulse response reproducing all transient phenomena of music and speech without coloration.

Electrical features

The letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. 

As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference, that may influence the balanced audio signal. 

Compared to other microphones the self noise level of the TLM 193 is considerably reduced. As it is capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 140 dB without distortion, the TLM 193 provides a dynamic range of 130 dB (A-weighted).

Operational safety

All exposed surfaces of the microphone capsule, including the diaphragms, are at ground potential. This technology makes them highly immune to electrical and atmospheric interference and contamination through microscopic dust particles. 

The capsule is elastically mounted to avoid any structure borne noise that could interfere with its operation. 

The frequency response of the TLM 193 amplifier is linear down to 20 Hz. Even very low bass signals are reproduced without coloration. 

This implies that the microphone becomes more sensitive to subsonic frequencies, from structure borne noise or pop and wind noise. 

To avoid any LF interference, we recommend to use the EA 1 elastic suspension, the PS 15 pop screen, or the WS 89 windscreen.

Neumann TLM 170 stereo microphone set

Neumann TLM 170 R-MT-STEREO Factory-matched stereo set of two TLM 170 R mt with EA 170 in Mic Briefcase (Black)

The TLM 170 R condenser microphone is a large diaphragm microphone with multiple polar patterns. Its sound has a very transparent characteristic, in contrast to some of Neumann's other microphones that have a distinct personality.
As a result, the TLM 170 R is appropriate for many different applications in professional recording studios, broadcasting, film and television, and semiprofessional productions. The polar patterns can be selected either at the microphone itself, or controlled remotely through the special N 248 power supply.

Acoustic features
The large diaphragm capsule inside the grille has a very smooth frequency response for all polar patterns over a wide acceptance angle. The curves are flat and parallel to the 0 frequency curve up to 10 kHz within an angle of ± 100.

The TLM 170 R has a very even diffuse-field response for all polar patterns. This is important in a reverberant environment, as more reflections arrive at the microphone from different directions. The acoustic information is not affected in its tonal quality when recorded by the microphone. This characteristic is achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects.

Therefore, the microphone maintains an excellent impulse response reproducing all transient phenomena of music and speech without any coloration. The capsule is elastically mounted to avoid any structure borne noise that could interfere with its operation.

Polar patterns
In addition to the usual directional polar patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8, Neumann has added a hyper-cardioid and wide-angle cardioid characteristic. When compared to the standard cardioid pattern, the hyper-cardioid characteristic suppresses sound from the side more efficiently. The wide-angle polar pattern is especially useful to record large sound sources.

Remote control
The N 248 controls the polar pattern remotely by varying the phantom voltage. The range is ± 3 V of the nominal 48 V value. (According to DIN standard a range of ± 4 V is permissible.)

The rotary switch on the microphone must be in the position R (= remote control). In this switch position the TLM 170 R microphone analyses the absolute value of the phantom power and selects the corresponding polar pattern. A standard 3-pin microphone cable is used, similar to the microphone's conventional operation. Cable lengths may be up to 300 m (1000 feet).

Electrical features
The letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference, that may influence the balanced audio signal.

Use on tripods
The TLM 170 R is provided with a tilting side bracket to attach the microphone to booms or stands. The bracket is equipped with rubber elements that effectively protect the microphone from mechanical shock. If necessary, it can be mounted on the other side of the microphone as well.
When using the IC 4 cable (for example to suspend the microphone from the ceiling with the MNV 87 auditorium hanger), the bracket and its holder need to be removed. The microphone can then be connected to the swivel mount connector of the cable.

Filter and attenuation
The TLM 170 R microphone has a 10 dB attenuation switch to prevent the input of the following unit from being overloaded. A second switch at the rear attenuates the frequency response below 100 Hz to suppress undesired structure-borne noise.

Neumann TLM 107 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone, Black

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

 

With the TLM 107 multi-pattern condenser, Neumann continues to live up to its name as one of the best microphone manufacturers in the world. Aside from its transparent, pristine audio capture, the TLM 107's best feature is its universal applicability. Having any one of five polar patterns at your disposal makes this condenser microphone a monster of a multifaceted recording tool. And because the TLM 107 handles a maximum sound pressure level of 153 dB SPL -- with its -12 dB pad engaged -- you'll be able to record belted vocals, drums, horns, or any other loud instrument without concern of distortion. Plus, all of the TLM's features can be easily controlled with a single navigation switch.

5 Pickup Patterns

The Neumann TLM 107 gives you five polar patterns -- omnidirectional, wide-angle cardioid, cardioid, hypercardioid, and figure-8 -- making it a versatile microphone for pretty much any recording situation you can think of. The frequency range is well-balanced for all five patterns; this isn't just strictly a vocal microphone. 

Nearly Flat Response with Airy Boost Above 8 kHz

The TLM 107 captures from 20 Hz to 20 kHz with a response that remains remarkably flat up to 8 kHz, giving you a true-to-life sound when you hit "playback." Engage the switchable low-cut for a gentle roll-off starting at 100 Hz or 40 Hz. You get a little boost starting at 8 kHz, centered around 13 kHz -- that high-end minimally-colored presence that's part of the sought-after Neumann sound.

Low Self-Noise and High SPL Handling

TLM stands for "transformerless microphone," which, in turn, means less unwanted noise. The self-noise of the TLM 107 is only 10 dB, so the only sound you'll hear will be what's going on in the room as you record. Also, this microphone handles a remarkably high sound pressure level of 141 dB SPL -- which can be pushed to 153 dB SPL using the TLM's switchable pad -- so you won't have to worry about vocals, drums, guitars, or any instruments being too loud during your recording session.

Ultimate Simplicity in Operation

You might expect a microphone with so many features to be cumbersome with switches, but the TLM 107's five polar patterns, pads, and low-cut filters are all accessible from a single circular switch on the microphone's back. Each setting is indicated by the LED lighting system that shuts off ten seconds after your settings have been selected. The switch and lights are located on the back of the TLM 107 so you don't have to worry about your vocalist or instrumentalist getting distracted.

Features:

- Remarkably flat frequency response
- Frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz
- Low self-noise of 10 dB
- Maximum of 141 dB,153 dB with pad, before distortion
- -6 dB and -12 dB pads
- Low Cut settings of linear, 40 Hz, and 100 Hz
- LED illuminated polar pattern, low cut, and pad display
- Pads, low cuts, and polar patterns all controlled by single switch
- Weighs only one pound
- Output impedance of 50 ohms and load impedance of 1000 ohms
- Connects via XLR
- Comes with stand mount and display case

The Neumann TLM 103 is the ideal large diaphragm microphone for all professional and semi-professional applications requiring the utmost in sound quality on a limited budget.

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

 


By utilizing the tried and true transformerless circuit found in numerous Neumann microphones, the TLM 103 features yet unattained low self-noise and the highest sound pressure level transmission. The capsule, derived from that used in the U 87, has a cardioid pattern, is acoustically well-balanced and provides extraordinary attenuation of signals from the rear.

The TLM 103 is available in satin nickel and matte black. Delivery includes an SG 1 metal swivel mount and a wooden jeweler's box.

Applications
Due to the universal cardioid pattern, straightforward handling, extremely low self-noise level, and finally, the price, the TLM 103 is predestined for all demanding applications from home recording to professional broadcasting and commercial recording studios.

Polar pattern
The TLM 103 is equipped with a large diaphragm capsule with cardioid pattern. By focusing on this pattern – used in most recording situations – the attenuation of unwanted rear sound has been optimized. Off-axis sounds are rendered naturally while isolation is increased. This also leads to a high feedback suppression when the microphone is used in live situations or where loudspeaker playback is a factor.

Neumann TLM 102 Cardioid mic with K 102 capsule, includes SG 2 and Carton Box

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

Despite its small size, the Neumann TLM102 studio microphone is well-equipped to make myriad sound sources -- from vocals and voiceovers to drums and amps -- sound huge. Ideal for home recording, broadcasting, and project studio applications, this diminutive Neumann microphone is a multi-functional must-have for anyone on a tight budget. If you treat it right, the large-diaphragm TLM102 will be your go-to studio mic for many years to come.

Great on Drums, Vocals, and More

With its fixed-cardioid large-diaphragm capsule's maximum sound pressure level (SPL) of 144 dB, the TLM102 can capture the fine details of drums and other very loud sound sources. When it's time to settle down and record something quieter, like vocals, the TLM102 really shines thanks to a slight boost above 6 kHz, which helps vocals stand out in a mix. According to Neumann, up to 6 kHz, the frequency response is extremely linear, making this microphone a standout choice for getting great recordings with a clearly defined bass range and minimal coloration.

All You Need Is One Good Mic

The expense of the TLM102 microphone is quite fair when you consider its wide range of applications. This one mic can yield exceptional results when recording loud instruments like drums and amps, for example, as well as quieter sound sources like the acoustic guitar and the human voice. If you've got a restricted allowance for recording gear and you have a small studio space, investing in a multi-purpose microphone like the Neumann TLM102, instead of a bunch of different microphones dedicated to specific recording applications, makes sense.

Neumann KMS 105 Supercardioid handheld with K 105 capsule, KMS Pouch and SG 105 (Nickel)

(Email for – LOWER- D.O’B. Sound Pro Price)

The KMS 104/104 plus and the KMS 105 microphones have been developed to optimally transmit the human voice with respect to the demanding conditions present on the live stage. 
The KMS series has become the internationally acknowledged standard for first-class stage microphones.

The high acoustic resolution and smooth frequency response of the microphones ensure that the musician has optimal control of the stage performance at all times.

Especially due to their low self-noise and crosstalk behavior which is free of coloration, the KMS microphones are ideal for use with in-ear monitoring systems.

The KMS 104 and the KMS 104 plus have a condenser microphone capsule with a cardioid directional characteristic which provides the best possible suppression of sounds originating from behind the microphone. In contrast, with its supercardioid characteristic the KMS 105 is particularly good at suppressing sounds originating from the entire 180° hemisphere behind the microphone. The KMS 104 plus features, compared to KMS 104, a more extended bass frequency response. In close cooperation with professional musicians, with the aid of extensive practical tests, the KMS 104 plus has been especially optimized for the requirements of female voices in the rock and pop field.

The user can thus select the version that is optimally suited to the specific application.

Acoustic features
The studio condenser capsules used in the microphone versions provide the basis for transmitting all the nuances of the human voice. In comparison with other handheld microphones, which operate mostly with dynamic capsules, the KMS series has a particularly high acoustic transparency, a wide frequency range and a fine resolution of transients.

In KMS microphones, carefully adjusted acoustic filters and transformerless impedance converters that can handle very high sound pressure levels prevent the microphones from being overloaded even by strong plosive sounds.

In spite of excellent pop protection, sibilants and "S" sounds are transmitted with their natural accentuation, as is possible only with condenser microphones. Furthermore, the above-mentioned acoustic filters are designed so that the distinctive directional characteristics of the capsules are preserved even in the bass range. The filters thus ensure a very high level of feedback protection for the KMS 104/104 plus and KMS 105 vocal microphones when they are used with a stage sound system.

Electrical features
Since vocal microphones are typically addressed at close range, for the bass frequency response of the microphones, electronic compensation is used for the proximity effect in the respective capsules.

In addition, the microphone has an invariable, built-in high-pass filter with a cutoff frequency of 120 Hz (-3 dB, measured in a free sound field). The dynamic range of the KMS microphones is 132 dB, and the maximum sound pressure level is 150 dB.

The low self-noise level of only 18 dB A permits the microphones to be used at high gain levels without the risk of additional noise. Even at large distances, the microphones thus operate with a high signal-to-noise ratio, facilitating the freedom of movement and creativity that are important to the artist.

Due to the transformerless output circuit, the microphone signals can be transmitted even through long cables without loss of sound.

Mechanical features
Microphones designed for use on stage require a particularly robust construction. The KMS 104/104 plus and KMS 105 therefore have thick-walled metal housings, which also provide effective protection against handling noise.

The microphone headgrilles are made of hardened steel. If required, they can easily be unscrewed to permit cleaning of the interior acoustic filters.

Delivery Range
The KMS 104/104 plus and KMS 105 microphones, with a matching stand clamp, are supplied in an attractive padded nylon bag that is sufficiently durable for touring.
