Neumann KK14 is a the basis to the MCM – Miniature Clip Mic System – delivering acoustic consistency for close miking applications.

KK 14 captures the signature sound of acoustic instruments to deliver a wide bass and mid-range, and a confident elegance in the treble. With a maximum SPL of 153, the KK 14 is open to all details.


To get there, Neumann engineers rethought the production process for electret-based microphones. Where classic solutions rely on highly integrated designs, Neumann chose a layered structure where every module of KK14 is built and designed to deliver the perfect result. The components are then assembled by hand in Germany. This eliminates typical compromises and opens the spectrum for formerly unmatched acoustic qualities. While the titanium housing is one ingredient to a road-tough design, it is also an expression of the inner elegance in design and engineering.

As a part of the Neumann Miniature Clip Mic MCM System, the new series comes with an unparalleled low cost of ownership. Its modular design also allows for easy replacements. Nine mounting clips allow for reliable positioning on any instrument while staying gentle to every surface. The system connects to all the important wireless systems and includes cable options for a 3.5 mm jack, Lemo, 4-pin mini-XLR, MicroDot, or wired connection.
