    electret microphone singing by definition, does not work on all the voices on some, I often had problems with plosives (P, B, T) and whistling, contrary to the assertions of others, it depends on certain production series ..... I Prefers far a SM87 or even a AKG535 ...........

    OVERALL OPINION

    2 microphones kms, 2 different sound, because I do not like unreliable with different sets
    if the singer does not have a trunk, big problem with feedback and plosive end but too sensitive
    paint that does not take time, too expensive .................

    Microphone hyper-cardioid condenser, phantom power is required. This microphone is ideal for singing on stage preferably, its hyper-cardioid eliminates noise environments and play nicely with the sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it regularly since January 2014 A real treat on scene and taken to the home. It includes all the intonations, the breaths. I appreciate the Neumann studio, but I'd rather live.

    See previous review.

    OVERALL OPINION

    1: 6 months 2: Yes (see my "gear") 3: transparency and neutrality 4: Neumann is also the price of the finish is marque.La limit, the red paint of the logo was part of the first half to use . For the price of the microphone, it is shameful. I used to vote taken "in tears" in makeshift studios homes, for this purpose coupled with a good preamp and is excellent.C is a compromise between a static and a dynamic studio and stage its advantage is its narrow directivity which isolates the voice recording.

    Micro song.

    For technologies, it is better to refer to the datasheet :)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over a year, heavy metal and classical concerts.

    I was once a Shure Beta 87 Sennheiser ew 100 HF.

    This mic is awesome and I do divide them for anything. it restores the voice to perfection, what is "tight" because it does not forgive the slightest false note.

    I use singing "pop", classical, rock or saturated and reacts great in each of these styles.
    I never had any problems with feedback.

    The KMS 105 is a micro scene or song. It is static with a capacitor. Finally, we all know that.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I made my first evening! What a treat. Little noise, it insulates the way the singer of the ambient noise and other sounds.

    I tested a few models before and I have often been mixed. I was looking for something more qualitative and I am fallen with the 105.

    A band of authors (donations myself) regularly drives to a service. I need a microphone for this. Believe me, in this area, it is excellent. I also used to make my voice equally excellent.

    It is expensive, but I do not believe in the long-term quality of products from Asia. This mic will take years without bl…

    Without hesitation, the purchase has to be redone if necessary.

    Neumann KMS 105Published on 12/16/12 at 00:03
    The KMS105 is a great microphone to use for live situations, it is more on the higher priced side of microphones but it is well worth the money. It has very low noise and uses a super cardioided polar pattern. This microphone is intended to be used with vocals only and trying to use it on instruments will only make it come up short. The frequency range is great especially for live shows and it does a great job of not picking up other sounds and vocalist in the background.

    OVERALL OPINION

    OVERALL OPINION

    Neumann came out with this microphone about 5 years ago and I have been using it since the day it came out. For the longest time this would be the only microphone that I would use for live show. Though I did not do many live shows at the time (2007) but any time that I did, I made sure this was the microphone that I was using.
    Looking at this microphone will not make you think it is an expensive higher end microphone. It looks very basic and cheap by its plain black color and black mesh grill with a small diamond logo on it. That is the only thing that I don’t like about it. I feel that because it cost so much and it is a stage mic meaning a lot of people will be seeing it. It would have been nice for it to have a little more flare to it with maybe some or something that would make it pop and stand out on a bright stage. But if looks do not bother you then this microphone is pretty much perfect for the live musician. I have not tried to use it in a studio but I would think that it would not be as good as it is on a stage. This condenser rocks the stage!

    micro singing and sound recording
    need a 48 v

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am the User since 2003 (4 to 5 times per week)

    so basically Shure Seinheiser sometimes

    we do what we want to do all the nuances of the voice are reproduced

    most: the sound of hell, the solid cell
    Cons: more sensitive to feedback live a quality similar to Shure ..
    paint tends to leave if I compare a beta 58 older nickel that remains at this level .. it is necessary to take care

    report quality price equal to the quality Neumann

    so carefree

    I just hope you can sing good

    Neumann KMS 105Published on 12/20/11 at 16:34
    In terms of dynamic mics, this is a pretty high tech design, with a 4 layer filter and a fairly high performance spec. You definitely get your money's worth in technology. The clarity of the 105, especially for a live dynamic microphone, is pretty unbelievable. It's highly sensitive to placement and mic technique. It will reveal more about a singer than just about any mic I've used. Some people have said that the response curve is similar to a beta 87 but I have not heard a similarity in the real world. The 87 has a more peaky mid range and is a bit more prone to feedback with a bad PA. I feel like the 105 has a warmness to it that a lot of "clear" live dynamic mics lack. It doesn't…

The 87 has a more peaky mid range and is a bit more prone to feedback with a bad PA. I feel like the 105 has a warmness to it that a lot of "clear" live dynamic mics lack. It doesn't have that imbalance between clearness and smoothness that is so present in cheaper dynamic vocal mics.

    The thing is, if your singer isn't very talented and well educated on how to use a mic, this one will show it. If you have a good system to go with it and a good singer, this might be the best live vocal mic out there. When used in a good environment and with a singer I trust, I have been blown away by this thing. I wish more places I played had them. If I see these in a venue I breath a sigh of relief. Because I know whoever is running sound probably know what he's doing...you would have to if you want to get the most out of these.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I recommend you try this with your own setup against your favorite shure/akg/whatever and make sure it's to your liking. Not everyone will think the 105 is worth the cash. Personally I think it is but we're speaking about diminishing returns here. As far as reliability I have never had an issue but I baby the 3 I have. I've used them elsewhere and they all seem solid. This is a real sleeper to a lot of people and I really recommend you wake up and get one.
