The Neumann KMS104 adeptly takes on the age-old challenge of attaining clean, clear sound reproduction even amidst the challenges of on-stage performance. Used on stages across the world, 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. Ideal for use with in-ear monitoring systems, the KMS104 has incredibly low self-noise and crosstalk behavior which is free of coloration.
Not limited to vocals or speech on stage, the KMS104 also works well as an announcer's mic for broadcasting or dubbing, and is suitable for a feedback-prone environment. But this mic's versatility gives it potential beyond its regular applications; with experimentation, you can get still more from it.
The cardioid polar pattern ruthlessly suppresses any sound originating from behind the microphone, while high acoustic transparency and a wide frequency range mean all the nuances of the human voice are accurately reproduced. Intricately constructed acoustic filters and transformerless impedance converters prevent the KMS104 from being overloaded even by strong plosive sounds - but the excellent pop protection doesn't stop sibilant sound from being transmitted with its natural accentuation and in perfect clarity.
A robust, thick-walled metal housing protects the mic from handling noise on stage and, together with a durable padded nylon bag, ensures this mic will be around for a long time. You'll certainly want it to.
