Vocal MicrophoneThe KMS 105 is developed to optimally transmit the human voice making it the first choice for demanding live applications. Due to the low inherent noise, crosstalk behavior that is free of colouration and the supercardioid characteristics, KMS-105 is ideal for a solo singer on stage. Popping, wind and handling noise are largely avoided through an innovative filter. High acoustic resolution and linear frequency response ensure that KMS-105 provides the musician an optimum control over singing and speaking on stage at any time.
Some years ago, I bought a KMS104 (cardioid), and was immediately impressed with the sheer detail and delicacy of the sound I was able to get. I chose cardioid, since most other vocal mics I had were cardioid, and I wanted to avoid the "rear lobe" that some super/hyper-cardioid mics exhibit. Anyway, I was pleased with the 104 but have found that I sometimes struggle to get wedge monitoring loud enough when using it.
I decided to try the KMS105 as an experiment really, on the basis that it was going to be as good as the 104, but would hopefully be better from a feedback point of view. I was right! The 105 IS a much better betif you're using wedges rather than IEMs. The sound is still wonderfully crisp, but with a rich body as well, just like the 104, but I find I can get all the level I need from monitoring, even on "loud" stages. There is a rear pickup lobe, but to be honest it's not noticeable, and certainly have never been an issue.
It is now my best mic, and goes out on every gig where there is a decent vocalist. I plan to sell the 104 and get another 105, because for me, it's just that bit more useable.
I love it! It's so simple and the quality is superb. At the clubs I go to now I insist on substituting my Neumann for any of the house mikes. It makes me feel a little embarrassed to do this, but now I don't feel comfortable with anything else. And I'm so impressed with the way it effectively eliminates any potential feedback difficulties.
