The high acoustic resolution and smooth frequency response of the microphones ensure that the musician has optimal control of the stage performance at all times. Especially due to its low self-noise and crosstalk behavior which is free of coloration, the KMS microphones are ideal for use with in-ear monitoring systems.
The KMS104 plus has a condenser microphone capsule with a cardioid directional characteristic which provides the best possible suppression of sounds originating from behind the microphone. The KMS104 plus features a more extended bass frequency response. In close cooperation with professional musicians, with the aid of extensive practical tests, the KMS104 plus has been especially optimized for the requirements of female voices in the rock and pop field.
The studio condenser capsules used in the microphone versions provide the basis for transmitting all the nuances of the human voice. In comparison with other handheld microphones, which operate mostly with dynamic capsules, the KMS series has a particularly high acoustic transparency, a wide frequency range and a fine resolution of transients.
In KMS microphones, carefully adjusted acoustic filters and transformerless impedance converters that can handle very high sound pressure levels prevent the microphones from being overloaded even by strong plosive sounds.
In spite of excellent pop protection, sibilants and S sounds are transmitted with their natural accentuation, as is possible only with condenser microphones. Furthermore, the above-mentioned acoustic filters are designed so that the distinctive directional characteristics of the capsules are preserved even in the bass range. The filters thus ensure a very high level of feedback protection for the KMS104 plus vocal microphone when it is used with a stage sound system.
In addition, the microphone has an invariable, built-in high-pass filter with a cutoff frequency of 120 Hz (-3 dB, measured in a free sound field). The dynamic range of the KMS microphones is 132 dB, and the maximum sound pressure level is 150 dB.
The low self-noise level of only 18 dB A-permits the microphones to be used at high gain levels without the risk of additional noise. Even at large distances, the microphones thus operate 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.
The KMS104 plus has thick-walled metal housing, which also provides effective protection against handling noise. The microphone headgrille is made of hardened steel. If required, it can easily be unscrewed to permit cleaning of the interior acoustic filters.
The KMS104 plus microphone, with a matching stand clamp, is supplied in an attractive padded nylon bag that is sufficiently durable for touring.
