KSM / KMS

26.11.2016
Whether the term is a coincidence or an intent, will probably remain in the dark. One thing, however, is clear, the KSM8 needs the comparison to Neumanns KMS 105 not shy. On the contrary, Shure has designed a microphone that will hold its own in the whole day. The KSM8 is convincing in its entirety in terms of sound, clear and clean in the entire frequency range, coupled with an effective suppression of unwanted sub-noises. It is still necessary to show how the KSM8 is backward-compatible with the Bose L1 Compact in the back (this report is gladly submitted later), here the Neumann reacted quite sensitively. It is to be expected, however, that Shure also produces less problems here.
Whether this fine microphone is suitable for all musical directions equally, other reviews will have to show. This review is based on experiences in the duo with guitar, vocals, flutes and whistles. The KSM8 is used for the female voice and the flutes / whistles. Since we are particularly interested in a clean transmission of the voice and the instruments, we are exceptionally satisfied with the performance of the KSM8. That pop and hissing sounds are almost completely elemeniert, there is quasi as bonbon obendrauf.
The only thing missing is the second KSM8 for the male voice.
