Neumann KM 183: Precision in Every Note
Introducing the Neumann KM 183, a pinnacle of small diaphragm condenser microphone technology. With its frequency-independent omnidirectional polar pattern, the KM 183 captures sound with unparalleled accuracy, delivering a natural, transparent audio experience. Whether you're recording the delicate tones of classical piano or unleashing the raw power of heavy metal drums, the KM 183 sets a new standard for studio excellence.

Faithful Sonic Reproduction
In a world where many microphones impart their own sonic character, the Neumann Series 180 takes a different approach. The KM 183, part of this esteemed series, is designed for faithful reproduction of the original acoustic event. It preserves the authenticity of your source audio, making it a versatile tool for applications where purity is paramount.

Versatility with Neumann Series 180
Comprising the KM 183 (omni), KM 184 (cardioid), and KM 185 (hypercardioid), the Neumann Series 180 caters to diverse pickup pattern needs. Unlike modular alternatives, the non-modular design of the Series 180, including the KM 183, ensures cost-effectiveness without compromising on performance. It's a testament to Neumann's commitment to providing audio professionals with tools that uphold their artistic vision.

Unmatched Engineering, Omnidirectional Excellence
The KM 183 stands as a testament to Neumann's engineering prowess. Its omnidirectional pattern, uniform and frequency-independent, eliminates sound coloration over a broad pickup angle. This quality is essential for multi-microphone setups and precision stereo/surround imaging. The pressure transducer capsule is tailored for a flat frequency response in diffuse fields, with a treble boost near 10 kHz in free field conditions. With a transformerless head amplifier boasting a dynamic range of 127 dB, the KM 183 maintains its sonic integrity with utmost precision. Low self-noise at 13 dB-A and the ability to handle sound pressure levels up to 140 dB distortion-free ensure your recordings remain faithful to the source.

Limitless Possibilities, Universal Application
The KM 183 is your gateway to diverse studio applications. Its transparent sound makes it a perfect match for acoustic instruments like piano, percussion, strings, and more, where authenticity reigns supreme. As a pressure transducer, its limitless low-frequency response shines in orchestra and church organ recordings. Its remarkable off-axis behavior excels in stereo and surround setups, while its compact size ensures it seamlessly blends into TV and radio environments.
