Neumann KMS 105

Condenser Soloists Microphone

Awesome!
Riga Drummer, 16.04.2020
Bought this for my wife, she sounds even better. Mostly used in smaller venues but sounded great also in some festivals. Sound is deep and warm, also you can hear all the little nuances and fine details!
Great mic!

Excellent sound ...but too expensive!
Alfiero, 10.04.2014
The sound is definitely great but I'm not sure whether I can justify the price! I own about about four mics which I use for live performance. These mics include Shure SM57 and the new TC Helicon 75 (which I bought to use with my voice live foot pedal). Another which I fell in love with when trying it out in a nearby music store is the EV ND767. This particular mic, in my opinion, is truly outstanding on stage. Let's get this straight: the Neumann KMS 105 sounds even better! Really crispy (but not too much); bright (but not too much) and deep (but not too much bass to kill it). But...the EV ND767 is 1/5 of the price and the Neumann is definitely not 5 times as better. It's not even twice as better! On the other hand I was quite impressed with the fact that although the Nuemann is a condenser mic it does not tend to give feedback on stage easily. You really have to push it to start giving you feedback issues. Conclusion: price may not indicate how good a mic is for your voice although it is still an indicator whether it works well or not. The Neumann may not be 5 times as good as other mics in the Euros 100 region. Still thumbs up for the Neumann.

Worst room acoustic?
SSaZae, 20.04.2021
I bought silver after black.

Let me give you a piece of advice.
Buy silver

Why? Silver products don't have fingerprints.

Haha, of course, the sound is awesome.

Even if you record in an ancient Roman bathhouse, your voice will suck perfectly. It'll suck it in with fine detail and beautiful sound.

Worst room acoustic? But do you want the condenser sound?
The only answer is kms105.

One of the best microphones
Dani Sparkle, 07.05.2017
This microphone is absolutely amazing.
It is hard to control for live situation, but if the audio engineer is good, he can make it just the perfect microphone for singers.
