The KM183 is an omnidirectional pressure transducer microphone with a boost of approximately 7 dB at 10 kHz in the free field. In the diffuse sound field it has a flat frequency response; its output is balanced and phantom (48V) powered. Compact and affordable, but with all the electroacoustic brilliance you'd expect from a brand like Neumann, the KM183 is suitable for a very wide range of tasks in the radio and television sector, with its slender shape and wide-reaching transmission characteristics. With optimised mechanical characteristics that cut costs without cutting back on quality, the KM183's price tag is only outdone by its stellar sonic performance. Also available in nickel.
