  • The KMS 105 D microphone is the transition of the well-established KMS 105 analog microphone into the digital domain. Based on the AES42 standard, this microphone is an ideal choice for live and on-stage applications.

    The KMS 105 D provides all of the features of its analog counterpart. Additionally, it offers the advantage of the digital circuit technology, such as extended dynamic range, a more robust operation (EMC safe) and the avoidance of clipping as a result of the integrated peak limiter / compressor.

    Use of one of the digital microphone interfaces together with the Remote Control Software (RCS) permits pre-programmed settings to be stored in the microphone.


    • Neumann sound on stage
    • Excellent transparency for vocals/speech
    • Cardioid/Supercardioid polar pattern with excellent feedback rejection
    • Without off-axis coloration
    • Effective pop shielding without any side effects
    • Set includes stand clamp
    • The legendary Neumann sound in the digital realm. Pure Neumann capsule sound.
    • The satisfaction of recording the uncolored original, with no bottlenecks between the capsule and the recording system.
    • The guarantee of having one of the best A/D converters available.
    • Anti-clipping processing ensures handling safety, and reduces stress.
    • Reduced time requirements and personnel costs, particularly due to faster post production processing.
    • Lower investment costs, since separate A/D converters and preamps are no longer needed. This also means space and weight savings (e.g. in the OB van).
