Neumann USA has introduced the Neumann KMS 104 to the U.S. market at AES 2006. Neumann is world famous for studio microphones, but with the KMS 104 Neumann continues to make uncompromising standards available in an affordable high-quality handheld microphone for live performance applications. The KMS 104 features all the same capabilities that have made the KMS 105 so successful, however, offers the choice of a cardioid polar pattern.
The design includes an elastic shock-mounted cardioid capsule. Neumann tell us that the KMS 104 offers superior resolution of the voice, with extended frequency response and accurate transient detail and that sibilance problems common to other handheld condenser mics are virtually eliminated. They say that the mic delivers an ‘open’ and detailed presence, with controlled, accurate bass response. The frequency response and in-built high-pass filters have been optimized for very close miking. They compensate the proximity effect, resulting in an even sound reproduction.
The KMS 104 is provided with a capsule with cardioid characteristics, yielding the best rear sound rejection. The KMS 105 uses a capsule with hypercardioid characteristics, yielding the best front-to-back rejection ratio. Due to low self-noise and cross talk behavior devoid of coloration, both microphones are ideal for use with personal monitoring systems.
