Neumann KMS104mt
Cardiod Condenser Vocal Microphone

Item: NNKMS104MT

The KMS 104 microphone has been developed to permit optimal transmission of the human voice, and is the microphone of choice for demanding live applications.

The KMS 104 has a microphone capsule with a cardioid directional characteristic which provides the best possible suppression of sounds originating from behind the microphone. 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.

The studio condenser capsules used in the KSM104 microphone provides 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.

Carefully adjusted acoustic filters and transformerless impedance converters that can handle very high sound pressure levels prevent the KMS104 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 vocal microphone when it is used with a stage sound system.

Since vocal microphones are typically used at close range, for the bass frequency response of the microphones, electronic compensation is used for the proximity effect.

In addition, the KMS 104 has a 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 104 is 132 dB, and the maximum sound pressure level is 150 dB.

The low self-noise level of only 18 dB-A permits the microphone to be used at high gain levels without the risk of additional noise. Even at large distances, the microphone operates 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.
Microphones designed for use on stage require a particularly robust construction. The KMS 104 has thick-walled metal housings, which also provide effective protection against handling noise.

The KMS104mt, pictured on this page, is in the matte black finish.  The KMS104ni is the same microphone in a nickel finish.
