About this Product
Pixel Pro Audio's Choice
Neumann are legends in the industry with the SKM184 playing a major role in the lore. 184's are a staple in professional studios and are a must-have for drum overheads, orchestral recordings and even acoustic guitar. They deliver the smooth and detailed response engineers have come to expect from a Neumann microphone.
This brand new Neumann KM184 Microphone Stereo Set includes a matched pair of KM184 small diaphragm condenser microphones microphones with stand mounts, windscreens, and a wood storage case.
Condition: Brand new.
Product Details: The KM 184 (cardioid) in particular has become the classic high-quality miniature microphone. Now also available in attractive stereo sets, with cardioid, hypercardioid or omni directional characteristics.
Applications Their slender shapes and the transmission characteristics described below make the "Series 180" especially suitable for a very wide range of tasks in the radio and television sector.
Acoustic features The KM 184 microphone is the successor of the well proven KM 83 and KM 84, which have been used since the seventies worldwide with great success.
The pressure gradient transducer KM 184 features very smooth frequency responses not only for the 0-degree axis, but also for lateral (off-axis) sound incidence. In typical usage, there is no coloration of sound over a wide pickup angle.
Although the KM 184 has the same capsule as the KM 84, the microphone differs slightly on the 0-degree frequency response: The KM 184 has a gentle rise at about 9 kHz, a characteristic that was introduced very successfully with the KM 140. The result is a tonal balance that is fresher and livelier when compared to the KM 84 with its flat frequency response in that band.
This difference was achieved with just a slight change of the capsule's rear opening, and is not due to resonances.
Electrical features The "Series 180" microphones have the same transformerless circuitry as is used in the KM 100 system, resulting in excellent technical specifications.
Compared to the KM 84 the dynamic range of the KM 184 increased by 24 dB mainly through the reduction of self-noise level to only 22 dB (CCIR) and an increased sound pressure handling capability of up to 138 dB.
The microphones operate without any problems, even if the input of following equipment happens to be unbalanced, for example as in some DAT recorders.
The output of the "Series 180" , as in all Neumann microphones, is balanced and phantom (48V) powered.
