    New Top-Brand Gear From An Authorized US Dealer

    You get top-brand gear, new from the factory, from an authorized US dealer. Our products are shipped from the vendor to our warehouse, and then from the warehouse to you. There is no detour through a retail store, where the boxes are opened, the products put on display, and then sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you are comparing new gear from authorized US dealers. 

    Special Opportunities: When It's Not New, We Tell You

    We occasionally have opportunities to buy B-stock merchandise to offer at special discounts. We also sometimes get returns in less than perfect condition. Sometimes we will offer these products to you - but we always identify it clearly as such using the classifications below. So unless it says otherwise, it's new from the factory.

    Important Guarantee: Your 100% Satisfaction

    Regardless of the condition described on our site, what you should remember is that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it (though exceptions apply for some products). Of course, if you know you will only be happy if a product is 100% cosmetically perfect, then you shouldn't order B-Stock or Blemished merchandise - it's just not a good gamble. And if you will only be happy if a product has never been touched by another human, well then the Resealed products aren't a good choice for you. But if you are looking for even more impressive values than our already-low prices, then these options will be very attractive when available.

    These are our best descriptions of the quality and condition of this merchandise. Because of the highly efficient, automated nature of our warehouse, and the high volume of products we stock and ship, there is no way for us to provide any additional detail on the condition of any individual item. Just remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

    Product Description


    Designed with superlative vocal reproduction in mind, the KMS 105 brings Neumann quality to the demanding sound reinforcement environment. With its supercardioid polar pattern, low self noise, and uncolored off-axis pickup, the KMS 105 complements in-ear monitor systems. By employing a unique 4-layer acoustic filter, the KMS 105 minimizes popping and wind noise, and with special mechanical and electrical filters, handling noise is virtually eliminated. Because of the superior resolution and linear frequency response, it is very easy for the artist using the KMS 105 to identify whether he or she is "on mic."The Neumann KMS 105 has become an internationally recognized standard in the field of high-quality stage microphones. An excellent vocal mic that truly gives the Neumann Sound on stage, it excels as a live and studio microphone for speech, acoustic-stringed instruments and brass. Very high SPL capabilities, low handling noise, a tight supercardioid polar pattern, excellent feedback rejection, and uncolored off-axis response make this a professional choice that is easy to use and a pleasure to record with.

    Features:

    - Supercardioid polar pattern with excellent feedback rejection
    - Excellent transparency for vocals/speech
    - Without off-axis coloration
    - Transformerless output
    - Effective pop shielding without any side effects
    - Set includes stand clamp
    - Low self-noise and crosstalk behavior -
    - ideal for use with in-ear monitoring systems

    Common Applications:

    - Vocals and speech on stage
    - Announcer's mic for broadcasting/dubbing
    - Especially suited for in-ear-monitoring
    - Excellent stage condenser for feedback-prone environments

    The Neumann Sound on Stage

    Compared to other handheld vocal microphones, the KMS 105 offers a superior resolution of the voice, with extended frequency response and accurate transient detail. Sibilance problems common to other handheld condenser mics are eliminated. No foam is used in the basket, thus eliminating any "clouding" or "muffling" of the sound. Also, by using a DC-polarized studio condenser capsule, all the nuances of the voice come through with subtlety, power, and focus.

    Supercardioid Capsule

    With its supercardioid characteristic, the KMS 105 is particularly good at suppressing sounds originating from the entire 180-degree hemisphere behind the microphone. The K 105 capsule was developed from the K 50, found in the KMS 150, KM 150, and KM 185 microphones. The K 105 features a supercardioid pattern, achieved by specially modifying the response of the K 50 pressure gradient transducer. The frequency response characteristic is developed in the acoustic realm, allowing for accurate representation of transient details found in music and speech, and thus transmitting a very "open" and detailed capture of the human voice. Due to the tight supercardioid polar pattern and the coloration-free off axis response, a very high level of gain before feedback is achieved. This polar pattern offers the highest degree of isolation while still allowing for a generous "sweet spot" in front of the microphone.

    Wide Dynamic Range

    The dynamic range of the KMS 105 is 132 dB, allowing reproduction of the artist's full expression, without restraint. The maximum SPL is 150 dB and with a low self noise of 18 dB-A, a greater gain can be used without risk of adding noise to the mix. This way, the artist is able to use the microphone at a greater distance -
    - therefore maintaining a wide range of creative freedom during the performance.

    Great for Use with In-ear Monitors

    Because of the superior resolution and linear high frequency response, it is very easy for the artist using in-ear monitors to identify whether or not he or she is "on mic" with the KMS 105. And by employing a transformerless output circuit, this microphone can incorporate long cable runs with no loss of signal quality or high-frequency response.

    No Muffling Foam in the Microphone Basket

    Most of the available vocal microphones rely on the attenuating effects of foam layers inside the basket. Although this is certainly a cost-effective procedure, the detrimental effects of this foam layer can be shown quite easily. Treble frequencies are attenuated, and furthermore the polar pattern can be deformed. These drawbacks can be eliminated by selecting open mesh constructions. With careful dimensioning and selection of different mesh sizes, excellent pop and wind attenuation can be delivered, as is well known from the standard studio-use pop screens PS 10 and PS 20, made of 2 layers of spaced fabric. In the KMS 105 a combination of 4 wire meshes with different mesh sizes is used. The chosen combination yields a very constant polar pattern, while maintaining the capsule's acoustic frontal frequency response. Naturally, the outer microphone basket is hardened steel, due to the required ruggedness for on-stage use.
