The Neumann KMS 104 PLUS NI is a vocal condenser microphone with a cardioid pick up pattern that has been optimized for the requirements of female voices in the rock and pop field. The KMS series has become the internationally acknowledged standard for first-class stage microphones.
The Neumann KMS 104 PLUS NI features high acoustic resolution and smooth frequency response ensuring that the musician has optimal control of the stage performance at all times. Due to low self-noise and crosstalk behaviour the KMS 104 PLUS NI microphone is ideal for use with in-ear monitoring systems. The KMS 104 PLUS NI has a condenser capsule with cardioid directional characteristics providing the best possible suppression of sounds originating from behind the microphone. The Neumann KMS 104 PLUS NI is a professional stage condenser microphone specifically developed for female vocalists offering incredibly clear and accurate vocal reproduction with tour ready reliability. Acoustic Features The studio condenser capsule used in the KMS 104 PLUS NI provides the basis for transmitting all the nuances of the human voice. In comparison with other handheld microphones which operate mostly with dynamic capsules the KMS series has a particularly high acoustic transparency a wide frequency range and a fine resolution of transients. In KMS microphones carefully adjusted acoustic filters and transformerless impedance converters that can handle very high sound pressure levels prevent the microphones from being overloaded even by strong plosive sounds. In spite of excellent pop protection sibilants and S sounds are transmitted with their natural accentuation as is possible only with condenser microphones. Furthermore the above-mentioned acoustic filters are designed so that the distinctive directional characteristics of the capsules are preserved even in the bass range. The filters thus ensure a very high level of feedback protection for the KMS 104 PLUS NI vocal microphone when used with a stage sound system. Electrical Features Since vocal microphones are typically addressed at close range for the bass frequency response of the microphones electronic compensation is used for the proximity effect in the respective capsules. In addition the microphone has an invariable built-in high-pass filter with a cut-off frequency of 120 Hz (-3 dB measured in a free sound field). The dynamic range of the KMS microphones is 132 dB and the maximum sound pressure level is 150 dB. The low self-noise level of only 18 dB A permits the microphones to be used at high gain levels without the risk of additional noise. Even at large distances the microphones thus operate with a high signal-to-noise ratio facilitating the freedom of movement and creativity that are important to the artist. Due to the transformerless output circuit the microphone signals can be transmitted even through long cables without loss of sound. Mechanical Features Microphones designed for use on stage require a particularly robust construction. The KMS 104 PLUS NI has a thick-walled metal housing which also provides effective protection against handling noise. The microphone head grilles are made of hardened steel. If required they can easily be unscrewed to permit cleaning of the interior acoustic filters.
