Adding it to my list for 2009.......

By Sam Martin

from Red Bluff, CA

See all my reviews

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

So, my team and I were invited to lead worship at a really big church... 3,000 plus filled the auditorium.... and I was quite nervous, at my church I utilise the Shure Beta 87A, but this time the sound engineer told to try this mic, I did not really notice a big difference besides the fact that my voice sounded deeper, but when I heard the recording playback I was amazed, I truly was! this mic made my voice sound not only deeper but also full rich and definetely stronger.At the end of the service people were greeting me saying that my voice was strong, full and confident. I still like the Beta 87A, but I most certainly want to buy this mic and to add it to my collection to have more options, I think it's a little expensive but certainly worth it, so if you can justify the price of this product for it's quality I recommend you get it, but first test it in a live scenario or music store, to ensure you don't make a mistake, always a great idea when purchasing a new product!!! Well, God bless you all!!!!! JESUS ROCKS!!!!

Great Mic

By JustinLayman

from bradenton, FL

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

The only problem I've had with this mic is that if you have a airy voice it'll make everything a bit muddy. For what it is it's the best. I own a beta58 and a beta87 as well, and i use thoes to "fall back on" if the PA sucks. Another problem is that if you don't have a "good" sound guy and your too close to the drums you'll face some big problems. If you can get your hands on this mic and try it out for a show thats the best thing to do. I know by it's self it's amazing but you have to make that call.

Neuman KMS 105

By Oystein Eide

from Oslo, Norway

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

I have used this mic for about two years now and it still keeps impressing me. I work at a jazz club and we often get in fairly critical singers on stage. This is a mic for those who want their vocal to be the important element in the mix. The high end is open and gives detail that average stage mics never are able to deliver. It is also fairly senstitive (watch out for HF monitor feedback) and the performer/singer can vary the distance to the mic to a degree that gives a great deal of level control. The mic is especially nice on female singers, I find. It's a thrill to see the smile on a singer's face when he/she is presented with such a nice mic. You can tell they are all happy with it.

the bomb

By Bob-AiCdu

from N Nevada

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

I have owned this mic for seven years. I also own Audio Technica (atm 41, better than a 58) Sennheiser, and Shure.This microphone, for vacals is as close as you will get to a great condenser in the studio. But be warned, if you are off pitch, everyone will hear it, very nakedly.If you are a good vocalist, it will make you sound great.

If you take your live vocals seriously...

By Miles Winter Roberts

from London, UK

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

This is an amazing piece of kit if you take your live vocals seriously. The first time I used it, I couldn't believe what I'd been missing! It doubles really well as a home studio mic, so if you need both, this covers both fields. I have found it to be be surprisingly robust, having used it extensively for 3 years now. It IS worth the money!! (and looks hot, too!). Comes in a gig pouch and a tubular box for protection on the road... I love it!

Bangin'

By Ghost

from NJ

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

I used this mic to play bars in jersey I sing in a baritone and it really lifts the tone out, I play out 10-15 times a month and after coming back from vermont it started acting funny. I sent it out thinking it would be gone along time I bought a shure 87a,It came back in a week working better than ever and my 87a well, I let my friend I play with use that. Very Happy.

an incredible mic, but 87 good too

By CT-RcWVf

from New York/Paris

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

This is an incredible microphone. The sound is clear, warm, and very revealing. No other mic I've used communicates as much of the nuance in how you sing live, and is as intuitive in terms of mic technique. It's fantastic. But it is so expensive that if you just need a fantastic vocal mic, the beta87 is IMHO a much better value. The frequency response is pretty much identical. They are both pretty much the same in terms of feedback. (the shure is a touch better). The neumann is a bit warmer (less harsh, ever so slightly clearer), adding a slight buttery quality to vocal sound which the shure does not have. The Neumann is a better mic, and I use it over the Beta 87 almost every time, (occasionally the shure seems to have more presence on a bad P.A.) but I am not sure you'll hear the difference without knowing which is which (even if you have good ears). They are really similar.

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

If you ever get a chance to put your 5 most favorite vocal mics side by side try it. Make all the faders and eq's identical then try it! You will be amazed at the response. No need to struggle. When used for the weekend Karaoke get together, people fight to use this mic. Controlling your vocal cords is no longer a strain.

The best I could find. No regrets..

Comments about Neumann KMS105 Microphone:

The quality and dynamic range that this mic has are the best I could find in a non-studio mic. It is expensive, but I can get right out of it for what I paid for it, just like my tlm105. A good value. You get what you pay for...
