The KMS 104 plus microphone has been developed to optimally transmit the human voice with respect to the demanding conditions present on the live stage. 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 their low self-noise and crosstalk behavior which is free of coloration, the KMS microphones are ideal for use with in-ear monitoring systems.

The KMS 104 and the KMS 104 plus have a condenser microphone capsule with a cardioid directional characteristic which provides the best possible suppression of sounds originating from behind the microphone. The KMS 104 plus features a more extended bass frequency response than the KMS 104. The KMS 104 plus has also been especially optimized for the requirements of female voices in the rock and pop field.


Acoustic features

• High acoustic transparency, a wide frequency range and a fine resolution of transients.
• 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.
• High level of feedback protection when used with a stage sound system.

Electrical features

• Since vocal microphones are typically addressed at close range, for the bass frequency response of the microphones, electronic compensation is used for the proximity effect in the respective capsules.

• Invariable, built-in high-pass filter with a cutoff frequency of 120 Hz (3 dB, measured in a free sound field). The maximum sound pressure level of the KMS microphones is 150 dB.

• 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.

Mechanical features

• Thick-walled metal housings, which also provide effective protection against handling noise.

• Hardened steel headgrilles can easily be unscrewed to permit cleaning of the interior acoustic filters.

• Includes an attractive padded nylon bag that is sufficiently durable for touring.
