Manufacturer's Description

While live microphones usually operate with dynamic capsules, we designed the KMS series as “studio sound for the stage”. That’s why we chose condenser capsules. Due to their construction they capture the voice more vividly, with greater detail and a wider frequency response. This uncolored high definition sound doesn’t only convince on stage, it also delivers reference class sound in the home studio for vocals, acoustic guitars, and brass instruments with superior elegance and transparency.

The KMS 104 plus are coming with a cardioid pattern which perfectly attenuates sound from the rear; the KMS 104 plus has a more prominent bass range and is especially optimised for female Rock and Pop voices. All versions share a remarkably uncolored off-axis response – a great advantage, especially for in-ear monitoring on stage.
