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.

Hlt exactly what it promises!

Onderson, 21.04.2018
I use the microphone for voice conferencing and requires voice recording in the home office.

The KSM8 is for me in some ways no alternative. It is characterized by its greatly reduced proximity effect and therefore a very large "sweet spot", and yet it has a proper directional characteristic (kidney).

For my main purpose - language conferences in a less acoustically treated study - this combination is perfect. Noise (PC, keyboard jingles, traffic) is barely perceptible, and thanks to the frequency-independent directional characteristic noticeable background noises still sound natural. Also, thanks to the KSM8, I do not have to pay much attention to the right distance to the microphone, because the voice sounds natural both in 20cm distance and in full contact.

Other advantages for me are the relatively small profile (allows free view of the screen and keyboard), and the robust design of the microphone - you just realize that it was designed as a stage microphone.

To the sound itself; sounds natural to me and flattering my voice. The well-known "presence peak" of other stage microphones from Shure is not or hardly available. Of course, the sound is not as detailed as an expensive condenser microphone (transient loyalty), but this is due to a dynamic microphone of physics.

Bottom line, the Shure KSM8 lives up to its promise.
