The black matte Neumann KMS 105 D Handheld Digital Vocal Microphone features a supercardioid polar pattern and has been developed to optimally transmit the human voice with respect to the demanding conditions present on the live stage. This digital mic is the transition of the well-established KMS 105 analog microphone into the digital domain. Based on the AES42 standard, this mic is an ideal choice for live and on-stage applications.

In addition to providing all of the features of its analog counterpart, the KMS 105 D offers the advantages of the digital circuit technology, such as extended dynamic range, a more robust operation (EMC safe) and the avoidance of clipping as a result of the integrated peak limiter/ compressor. Furthermore, it may be used with Neumann's Remote Control Software (RCS), permitting pre-programmed settings to be stored in the mic.

The included black SG 105 Stand Clamp is designed for use with this vocalist microphone. The clamp can be swiveled and has a 5/8"-27 threads, plus a thread adapter to connect to 1/2" and 3/8" stands.

Acoustic
The studio condenser capsule used in the microphone provides the basis for transmitting all the nuances of the human voice. In comparison with other handheld microphones, which operate mostly with dynamic capsules, it has a particularly high acoustic transparency, a wide frequency range and a fine resolution of transients.

In this microphone, carefully adjusted acoustic filter and transformerless impedance converter that can handle very high sound pressure levels prevent the microphone from being overloaded even by strong plosive sounds.

In spite of enhanced pop protection, sibilants and S sounds are transmitted with their natural accentuation, as is possible only with condenser microphones. Furthermore, the acoustic filter is designed so that the distinctive directional characteristics of the capsule are preserved even in the bass range. The filter thus ensures a very high level of feedback protection for this vocal microphone when it is used with a stage sound system.
Electrical
Since vocal microphones are typically addressed at close range, for the bass frequency response, 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 microphone is 132 dB, and the maximum sound pressure level is 150 dB.

The low self-noise level of only 18 dBA permits the microphone to be used at high gain levels without the risk of additional noise. Even at large distances, the microphone thus operates 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
Designed for use on stage, this microphone has 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.
Applications
  • For vocals and speech on stage
  • For announcer’s mic for broadcasting/dubbing
  • Especially suited for in-ear monitoring
  • For environments susceptible to feedback
Additional
  • Neumann sound on stage
  • High transparency for vocals/speech
  • Supercardioid polar pattern with enhanced feedback rejection
  • Without off-axis coloration
  • Effective pop shielding without any side effects
  • The pure Neumann capsule sound in the digital realm
  • The satisfaction of recording the uncolored original, with no bottlenecks between the capsule and the recording system
  • A/D converter
  • Anti-clipping processing ensures handling safety and reduces stress
  • Reduced time requirements and personnel costs, particularly due to faster post production processing
  • Separate A/D converters and preamps are no longer needed, saving space and weight (e.g., in the OB van)
  • Power supply (phantom power complying with AES42)
  • Neumann A/D conversion process, 28-bit internal word length
  • Fixed-point digital signal processing, variable internal word length 28 to 60-bits
  • Remote controlled functions include parametric compressor/limiter (including de-esser function), independent peak limiter avoiding any clipping, switch functions (soft muting, phase reverse, signal lights), signal lights (Red and blue LEDs), system functions, firmware download, and polar pattern
