Great vocal mic for the money
Ploki, 16.07.2020
It has the typical controlled all-round Oktava sound, except it sounds a little smoother and less rolled-off on the high-end.
Sibilances aren't harsh at all.
Compared to MK102 and MK101 it has a silky present high-end, but not harsh, also not as crispy as i.e. AKG C414.

Extremely malleable in a mix and very easy to fit.
Also used it on a Cello, and has a nice hefty low-end - not as much as a clip-on DPA would produce, but very controlled and full-bodied.

Needs a fair distance (10cm) or a very good pop-shield.

Highly recommended.

Vale la pena gastar más dinero?

Actualmente trabajo en el departamento técnico de la TV más importante de mi zona (TV3, Televisió de Catalunya) y antes estuve 13 años trabajando en reconocidos estudios de posproducción para publicidad, cine y TV.
Hoy en dia poseo un home estudio de 25m2 con una buena acústica, y como electrónica suelo usar un previo FOCUSRITE ISA Two que a través de unos excelentes transformadores de línea van a un compresor DBX160SL con su conversor ADC.
Para probar el Oktava MK-105 lo he comparado con un AKG C414B-XLS, puestos uno al lado del otro, con el DBX160SL en bypass, solo como ADC, grabando con ambos micros a la vez.
Primero he grabado una voz masculina y luego una guitarra clásica con arpegios, rasgueados y picados.
El Oktava necesita unos dBs más de amplificación para conseguir el mismo nivel que el AKG pero como tiene un ruído de fondo razonablemente bajo no hay problema.
La primera impesión es que el Oktava es más parecido a un U87 con su énfasis a partir de 3Khz.Para voces masculinas facilita poner la pista de voz en la mezcla.Con la guitarra clásica sucede lo mismo.Da este pequeño énfasis que facilita la mezcla sin tener que ecualizar nada o muy poco, en medio de otros instrumerntos. Comparado con el 414, puede que no sera la mejor opción para grabar un piano de gran cola, unos violines o una coral, pero para muchas cosas el MK-105 me parece una buena elección, y vale un poco más de una tercera parte que el AKG.
Atrás quedan las electrónicas ruidosas del Oktava MK-319 que adquirí en los 90 y su soporte de araña incómodo de usar. El 105 lleva una araña muy bien acabada y resistente, y a primera vista no puedo decir nada malo de su electrónica. Quizá por eso nadie se ha atrevido a modificarlo como en otros modelos de Oktava.
Por relación calidad-precio lo recomiendo.

Oktave macht wirklich nette Mikros mit gutem Preis/Leistungsverhältnis.

Features gibt eigentlich kaum.. keine Schalter für Lowcut oder so... also 1 stern Abzug für die fixe Niere ohne Verstellmöglichkeiten..
Verarbeitung gut (aber nicht perfekt). massives russisches Druckgussgehäuse: mit der netten Holzschachtel dazu gibt das einen guten Reisebegleiter.
Das Vocalmikro hat Scharm und die grosse Membran vom ehemaligen Oktava Flagship-Mikro, das leider nicht mehr produziert wird. Nett der vorderseitige goldfarbene Metallkorb, da weiss man wo man reinsingen muss.
Der Sound hat was. Klar, transparent nicht zu färbend, rauscharm, ausreichender Pegel. Habs in einem Spezialfall (sehr dunkle, volle Frauenstimme) einem Brauner Phantera vorgezogen, welches sonst meine erste Wahl bei Vocals ist.

Kann gemoddet werden (siehe Pressebericht auf der Produktseite), zB mit einem anderen Kondensator, dann sind die techn. Werte zwar "schlechter" aber der Klang ist subjektiv runder. Auch schon in Normalausführumg ist das Oktava eine gute Wahl.
Die dazupassende Spinnen (extra zu erwerben) ist solide und erlaubt auch gut eine Kopfüber-Montage.
Der Popkiller von Oktava (Thomann Artikelnr. 242944) ist eine hervorragende Idee: der wird sicher und elegant an der (oder einer anderen) Spinne befestigt - auch für andere Mikros toll...

J'adore le son de ces Oktava.
LE TOM STUDIO (27), 06.12.2020
Nous les utilisons tous les jours.
Prises de voix, OH Drum, prise d'ambiance guitare.
Très polyvalents.
Seul pb, la conception au niveau de la grille c'est pas top.
Comme si la grille était trop ajustée, coupée trop courte, il arrive qu'elle se déchausse du chassis.
Bref comme tous les micros Oktava, bon son, mais il faut en prendre soin.
