The Neumann KM 185 Stereo Set hypercardioid microphones are based on the tremendously successful KM 184 cardioid microphone, which has become a standard within the global studio community in just a very short time.
The Neumann KM 185 Microphones are suitable for a very wide range of tasks in the radio and television sector. The KM 185 with its hypercardioid characteristic features attenuation of sound incidence from the side or rear of about 10 dB, with minimum sensitivity at an angle of 120°.
The Neumann KM 185 Stereo Set is a good choice for all users who look for a high-quality miniature microphones.
The Neumann KM 185 Stereo Set Main Features Include:
Pressure gradient transducers
Successor of the worldwide successful KM 83/84
Trouble-free operation also with unbalanced equipment (e.g., DAT recorders)
Set includes windshield and two different microphone clamps
Especially for recording situations when it is necessary to attenuate off-axis sound (lateral and rear) from other nearby instruments.
