Neumann KM 184: Precision Perfected
Experience sonic purity like never before with the Neumann KM 184, an exceptional small diaphragm condenser microphone that sets new standards in audio excellence. Boasting a uniform, frequency-independent cardioid polar pattern, the KM 184 captures sound with unmatched clarity and naturalness. From the nuanced elegance of classical piano to the thunderous resonance of heavy metal drums, the KM 184 has become a revered fixture in studios and stages worldwide.

True Fidelity
In an era where microphones often impose their own sonic signature, there exists a realm where authenticity reigns supreme. The Neumann Series 180 caters to the demands of faithful sound reproduction, preserving the essence of the original acoustic event without alteration.

Versatility Redefined
Comprising three distinct members – the KM 183 (omni), KM 184 (cardioid), and KM 185 (hypercardioid) – the Neumann Series 180 ensures versatility for both stage and studio applications. Unlike modular alternatives, the non-modular design of the Series 180, including the KM 184, delivers a cost-effective solution without compromising quality.

Cardioid Brilliance
Beneath its attractive pricing, the KM 184 conceals cutting-edge Neumann engineering. Its cardioid pattern transcends frequency influence, excelling in the rejection of rearward sound, even in low frequencies. Practical applications reveal minimal sound coloration across a broad pickup angle – an essential attribute for multi-microphone setups and precise stereo/surround imaging. The KM 184's frequency response maintains smooth linearity, accompanied by a subtle treble elevation around 9 kHz for added brilliance. The innovative transformerless head amplifier ensures a wide dynamic range of 125 dB while preserving the capsule's sonic integrity. Boasting an ultra-low self-noise of 13 dB-A and an extraordinary capacity to handle sound pressure levels up to 138 dB distortion-free, the KM 184 is truly versatile. Its low impedance output stage facilitates cable runs of up to 300 meters (1000 feet) without signal loss.

Limitless Applications
The KM 184 adapts seamlessly to diverse studio and stage scenarios, rendering impeccable transparency to a range of acoustic instruments including piano, percussion, drums, acoustic guitar, upright bass, strings, woodwinds, and brass. Soloists and ensembles alike are elevated by its superior off-axis behavior, making it an indispensable choice for stereo and surround recording, delivering unparalleled imaging. While not tailored specifically for vocal capture, the KM 184 often finds its place in classical vocal recordings, where sonic authenticity is paramount. With its discreet size, the KM 184 fits harmoniously into TV and radio environments.
