With extreme low handling noise and extended frequency response, the Neumann KMS105 is the ultimate choice for the most demanding vocal performers

Designed with superlative vocal reproduction in mind, the KMS105 brings Neumann quality to the demanding sound reinforcement environment. With its super-cardioid polar pattern, low self noise and colorless off-axis pickup, the KMS105 complements in-ear monitor systems.

By employing a unique triple acoustic filter, The KMS105 minimizes popping and wind noise, and with special mechanical and electrical filters, handling noise is virtually eliminated. Because of the superior resolution and linear high frequency response, it is very easy for the artist using the KMS105 to identify whether he or she is "on mic".  

Acoustical Features
When compared to other handheld vocal microphones, the KMS105 offers a superior resolution of the voice, with extended frequency response and accurate transient detail. Sibilance problems common to other handheld condenser mics are eliminated. No foam is used in the basket, thus eliminating any "clouding" or "muffling" of the sound. Also, by using a studio grade DC-polarized condenser capsule, all the nuances of the voice come through with subtlety, power and focus.  

The K55 capsule was developed from the famous K50, found in the KMS150, KM150 and KM185 microphones. This new version features a super-cardioid pattern, achieved by specially modifying the response of the K50 pressure gradient transducer. The frequency response characteristic is developed in the acoustic realm, allowing for accurate representation of transient details found in music and speech, and thus transmitting a very "open" and detailed capture of the human voice.
