The Neumann KM 185 is a hypercardioid small diaphragm condenser microphone. Hypercardioid is a narrower, more directional version of the more commonly used heart-shaped cardioid polar pattern. By nature of their design, hypercardioid microphones offer the best off axis rejection to the side and rear of the capsule. This makes them an ideal choice for spot miking a solo instrument in a large ensemble. The KM 185 is also an excellent option for broadcast, location recording and live sound too. The Neumann KM 185 is an outstanding microphone with a detailed and transparent character.
The KM 185 is also available as a Stereo Set.
