Cardioid condenser microphone that has captured some of the great sounds over the past few years. Rugged enough to use live, and easily detailed enough to breathe some life into your recordings.
SPL handling up to 138dB makes this mic extremely versatile, with just enough sparkle up the top to make it interesting not distracting. Orchestral or Thumping - use it on either.
Although the KM 184 has the same capsule as the KM 84, the microphone differs slightly on the 0° frequency response: The KM 184 has a gentle rise at about 9 kHz, a characteristic that was introduced very successfully with the KM 140. The result is a tonal balance that is fresher and livelier when compared to the KM 84 with its flat frequency response in that band.
