The KK 105 capsule head brings studio sound quality to the stage for the most demanding live applications. The KK 105 combines Neumann’s famous sense of perfection with Sennheiser’s long standing expertise in live performance engineering.

The KK 105 capsule head is based on Neumann’s highly successful, award-winning KMS series of wired stage microphones. While most stage microphones use dynamic capsules, the KK 105 is equipped with a true condenser capsule offering the superior clarity that made Neumann studio microphones famous all over the world. At the same time, the KK 105 possesses the ruggedness required for stage use, thus refuting the myth that condenser microphones must be “fragile”. The KK 105 can stand enormous sound pressure levels of up to 150 dB without clipping, and its tight, frequency-independent supercardioid pattern ensures high gain before feedback. The KK 105 has a much smoother frequency response than dynamic microphones and an airy top-end. Compared to dynamic microphones, the Neumann KK 105 has a vastly superior transient response resulting in a more immediate, more emotional vocal sound. In practical terms: effortless intelligibility, without the usual EQ boosts – which further improves feedback resistance.

The KK 105 is optimized for close miking; a fixed low cut filter compensates for the proximity effect and ensures clear bass, even if the singer’s lips touch the microphone. The headgrille is made of hardened steel and features a highly effective internal pop screen made of multi-layer wire gauze. The “heavy duty” variant KK 105 HD instead uses an integrated foam screen for even greater pop protection. Thanks to careful Neumann engineering, these acoustic filters do not cause any sibilance problems.
