Overview of Neumann KM 185-MT-STEREOSETThe matte black SKM 185 MT Stereo Matched Microphone Pair from Neumann is a kit containing a stereo matched pair of the KM 185 microphones, a hypercardioid pattern, pressure gradient condenser microphone intended for live sound reinforcement and broadcast as well as recording applications. The KM 180 series microphones feature an output stage based on the KM 100. Transformerless circuitry and balanced output result in high output gain with a very low noise floor and no coloration to the output signal. The KM 185 is powered via +48V phantom power. The stereo pair is matched in sensitivity and frequency response and provides optimum results when capturing performances or ambiance. Its 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response provides flexibility for use in a wide range of recording situations. The KM 185 provides attenuation at the off-axis sections of the mic, and is suitable for X,Y and ORTF stereo miking, announcer's mic for broadcast, spot capturing of drum overheads, strings, wind instruments, percussion, piano, and amp cabinets. The KM 185 handles sound pressure levels up to 142 dB, allowing close miking of instruments high in transient (peak) level response.
