Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black)

Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Hypercardioid Digital Condenser Microphone (Nextel Black)

Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) Details

Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) is designed to deliver the pure Neumann sound in the digital domain, for use with AES 42. The signal is converted directly at the capsule. Difficult questions concerning the optimal preamp and A/D converter for a Neumann mic are thus a thing of the past. Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) is a further development of the successful KM 100 series. The newly developed passive capsule design is available with hypercardioid characteristics, and can be combined modularly as desired with a digital (KM D) output stage in accordance with the AES 42 standard. The new, considerably smaller microphone capsule and an extensive program of accessories permit excellent adaptation of Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) to a wide range of applications.


Through the use of the most up-to-date electronic components Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) offers many electroacoustic and operational advantages, such as lower self-noise, a wider dynamic range and very high immunity to electromagnetic interference. The acoustics of the capsule were taken from the proven KM 100 system.


Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black)'s digital output stage converts the signal from the capsule directly into a digital signal. The result is an AES/EBU signal with 24 bits and a large dynamic range. The integrated digital signal processor (DSP) permits remote control of the microphones, including the digital gain, pre-attenuation (6 dB, 12 dB or 18 dB) and low-cut filter (0 Hz, 40 Hz, 80 Hz or 160 Hz). An integrated peak limiter and compressor/limiter with additional de-esser function prevents any overloading of the audio signal.


The dimensions of Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) are; diameter 22 mm, length 93 mm. Upon request, a mechanical adapter can be supplied to adapt microphone capsules of the KM 100 system (AK series) to Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) output stage.


The modular solution permits Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) capsule to be separated from the output stage by a distance of up to 100 m. The LC 4 microphone cable with a length of 5 or 10 meters is available as a standard solution. Alternatively, capsule extensions of different lengths, swivel joints and stand mounts, etc., can be used for a flexible system setup.


Neumann KM 185 D Small-Diaphragm Digital Microphone (Nextel Black) Features


  • Digital microphone with cardioid capsule, compatible with the analog miniature microphone system KM A
  • Set includes windshield and clamp
  • Extensive accessories
  • The legendary Neumann sound in the digital realm. Pure Neumann capsule sound
  • The satisfaction of recording the uncolored original, with no "bottlenecks" between the capsule and the recording system
  • The guarantee of having one of the best A/D converters
  • Anti-clipping processing ensures handling safety, and reduces stress
  • Reduced time requirements and personnel costs, particularly due to faster post production processing
  • Lower investment costs, since separate A/D converters and preamps are no longer needed. This also means space and weight savings (e.g. in the OB van)
