The KM 183 is a state-of-the-art small-diaphragm condenser microphone with a frequency-independent omnidirectional polar pattern. It's very natural, transparent sound with very low self-noise, and high SPL capability have made the KM 183 a worldwide studio standard for many applications ranging from classical piano to heavy metal drums.

Despite its attractive pricing, the KM 183 offers state-of-the-art Neumann engineering. Its omnidirectional pattern is uniform and largely frequency-independent. In practical usage, there is no sound coloration over a wide pickup angle, which is crucial in multi-microphone setups and for precise stereo/surround imaging. The KM 183's pressure transducer capsule is equalized for a flat frequency response in the diffuse field. In the free field (i.e. close to the sound source), it has a treble boost of approximately 7 dB at 10 kHz. Its innovative transformer-less head amplifier offers a wide dynamic range of 127 dB and is carefully designed to maintain the capsule's sonic integrity. The KM 183 has a very low self-noise of only 13 dB-A and can handle high sound pressure levels of up to 140 dB free from distortion. Due to its low-impedance output stage, the KM 183 can drive long cable runs of up to 300 meters (1000 feet) without transmission losses.

The KM 183 is a universal microphone for studio applications. Its transparent sound makes the KM 183 a superb microphone for acoustic instruments, such as piano, percussion, drums, acoustic guitar, strings, woodwinds, brass, choir, and wherever sonic authenticity is paramount. As a pressure transducer, the KM 183's low-frequency response is limitless, which makes it an excellent choice for orchestra and church organ recordings. Thanks to its superior off-axis behavior, the KM 183 works extremely well in stereo and surround setups. Due to its small size, the KM 183 is visually unobtrusive and well suited to TV and radio applications.
