Neumann KM 184 Stereo Cardioid Microphone Set 

The Neumann KM 184's sound quality and transmission characteristics make the 184 especially suitable for a very wide range of tasks both in the radio and television sector and also in the studio or on location in concert halls or churches.

The KM 184 microphones are the successors of the well proven KM 84, which have been used since the seventies worldwide with great success.

The pressure gradient transducer KM 184 features very smooth frequency responses not only for the 0° axis, but also for lateral (off-axis) sound incidence. In typical usage, there is no coloration of sound over a wide pickup angle.

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. The result is a tonal balance that is fresher and livelier when compared to the KM 84 with its flat frequency response in this frequency band.

Neumann has achieved this difference with just a slight change of the capsule’s rear opening, and is not due to electrical properties or other resonances.

The KM 184 microphones have the same transformerless circuitry as is used in the KM 100 system, resulting in excellent technical specifications:

Compared to the KM 84 the dynamic range of the KM 184 increased by 24 dB mainly through the reduction of self-noise level to only 22 dB (CCIR) and an increased sound pressure handlingcapability of up to 138 dB.

The KM 184 is a good choice for all users who are looking for a high-quality miniature microphone, but do not need the complex, modular KM 100 system, which continues to be part of the Neumann product range.

The mechanical construction was simplified, for example, capsule and output stage cannot be separated from each other. For this reason the KM184 is an economical alternative without giving up the electroacoustic features the users expect from Neumann microphones.


The full range of accessories is also available to order including:


WNS 100 - Windshields in full range of colours

MNV 21 mt - Auditorium hanger

EA 2124 A mt - Elastic suspension
