NEUMANN KM 184 CONDENSER MIC The Neumann KM184 is the successor to the prestigious KM84 which has been employed world wide for over a decade. This updated version includes transformerless electronics and front end FETs for absolute sonic purity. This circuitry provides a lower noise platform and a higher SPL capability. In consequence the dynamic range of this revised model is increased by 21dB. It features very smooth frequency curves for frontal as well as lateral sound incidence. The smaller capsule size provides a working range of 270 degrees which can be captured without any sound colouration. The frequency response confirms the response is free of peaks and dips and extends below 20Hz and above 20kHz. Phantom powered.
