Great microphones, but different than KM84 Predecessor
21.03.2016
Have had a chance to use the mics in several different recording situations. Close miking an acoustic guitar in a dry room and in NOS configuration in a concert hall on a piano and soprano soloist.

The mics are fantastic quality! There is absolutely no self noise to speak of. They are crystal clean and extremely sensitive. That being said, it is important to realize that this type of response is not always what you want. There is only a slight HF lift but the the capsules are so sensitive that they seem to feature the high-frequency content of every sound source.
Where a Cello a French horn or a Steinway piano in a live hall may benefit from this, other sources like a hard strummed guitar or a very bright soprano will have a tendency to have the warmth of their mid and low-mid frequency range be over-shadowed by this hyper-real sparkle. An example of this is hearing too much of the pick noise on a strummed guitar and not enough of the tone. And this delicate balance can't easily be fixed by EQ.

However in a mix, this may be the thing you need!
I am definitely keeping these mics.

Very good mics
Schpiegel, 24.06.2014
These mics are really good. The price point is not cheap, but fair. The neumann quailty is immediately present when listening to recorded material. Stereo recordings of acoustic guitar is a dream. Works well on strings/choir and piano as well. I use these ones on guitar in the studio all the time, and as grand piano mics for live use on all my gigs. They have a slight accentuated top and rolled of bass, which in most cases is just perfect. They are slick, and comes in an even slicker case. I strongly recommend these mics.

bright but not harsh
chanxinwuxin, 12.05.2020
The microphone is very good. They are bright but not harsh. Recording a guitar has always been difficult, but Neumann km184 is fully capable. And it is also a good vocal microphone, although few people use it like this. And I must praise thomann's service quality and work efficiency, especially when I urgently need a microphone.

Amazing quality at this price
Felino, 14.03.2020
At this price you can't go wrong. These are used professionally and I use them for classical recordings. But keep in mind that the frequency response is limited below 100 Hz or so (it starts falling at 200Hz). This can be seen on the frequency response graph. Anyway, paired with a good set of omnis you get amazing response.
