Neumann KM184 mt Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone, Cardioid (Matte Black)

    Product Description

    MORE ABOUT THE KM 184

    Experienced users often describe the sound of our small diaphragm microphone as „fresh“ and „vivid”. This is – among other factors – due to a slight treble lift around 9 kilohertz. The KM 184 is an experienced all-rounder, a mic for all seasons. It captures virtually any instrument with amazing complexity and depth of sound.

     

    Another advantage: thanks to the extremely tight production tolerances, all KM 184 microphones produce a very consistent sound. Therefore, they can easily be used as a stereo pair with exact spatial imaging for all stereo recording methods.
