From Our Research Team:
Crystal-clear Vocals!Neumann is world renowned for their legacy of fantastic studio microphones, but with the elegant KMS-105 they are making their uncompromising standards available in an affordable high quality hand held microphone.
The exquisite design includes an elastic shock mounted supercardioid capsule with three metal basket layers providing a robust method of getting rid of those frustrating plosives. Not only is it a luxurious looking mic, but it's also very lightweight making it a pleasure to use in a live performance.
When compared to other handheld vocal microphones, the KMS 105 offers a superior resolution of the voice, with extended frequency response and accurate transient detail. Sibilance problems common to other handheld condenser mics are eliminated. No foam is used in the basket, thus eliminating any "clouding" or "muffling" of the sound.
The K 105 capsule was developed from the K 50, found in the KMS 150, KM 150 and KM 185 microphones. The K 105 features a supercardioid pattern, achieved by specially modifying the response of the K 50 pressure gradient transducer.
The frequency response characteristic is developed in the acoustic realm, allowing for accurate representation of transient details found in music and speech, and thus transmitting a very "open" and detailed capture of the human voice.
Due to the tight supercardioid polar pattern and the coloration-free off axis response, a very high level of gain before feedback is achieved. This polar pattern offers the highest degree of isolation while still allowing for a generous "sweet spot" in front of the microphone.

Great Live Mic
by John Byerly from Concord NCI found a write up that intrigued me a bout this mic. Couldn't find a bad thing written about it. Talk to Ryan and he said go for it.

Studio Quality on Stage
by Bob Seale from Palm Springs CAThis vocal mic is exceptional. We first used it for a Cabaret show. It captured every nuisance in the vocals. It captures the thrill in the voice as well as the smokey low intimate notes. It stands u... read more [+]p to both whispers and belts. A good singer can really work this mic and sound great. We have rerecorded some vocal tracks done in the studio using a lesser quality condenser mic. What a difference! This mic is worth every cent and then some. Buy it and try it. You'll love it. The nickel finish looks fantastic on stage too. close [-]

Slick your hair back, button up your shirt, shine your shoes, and straighten your tie. It's time for a night on the town. You need to look good for your show and sound even better, that's why you choose Neumann. This is my favorite live mic for any of my barbershop, rat pack, or crooning customers. If your music demands high quality at any price, the KMS is the mic for the show.
