104 Microphone - ELECTRICAL FEATURES:
Since vocalist 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.
In addition, each 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 Neumann KMS 104 and KMS
105 is 132 dB, and the maximum sound pressure level is 150 dB.
The low self-noise level of only 18 dB-A permits both 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.
