The Neumann KM184 is the new and improved version of the KM84. The KM84 was used in countless recordings since the 70's. The KM184 features a very smooth, colorless frequency response on and off-axis with a gentle rise at about 9 kHz. When compared to the KM84 there is a noticable difference in the balance of the tone. The KM184 is more fresh and livier. This difference was achieved with just a slight change of the capsule’s rear opening, and is not due to resonances. This is a transformerless mic with 138dB SPL handling capability, and low (22dB) self noise. Requires 48V phantom power and includes a case, windshield and two different stand mounts.
