Actually, that mic is going to be my next purchase. It's a dynamic mic, but so many people recommend it that I feel like I have to try it. Any mic will sound different on different people. Whatever sounds great to me may not impress you. So we just have to try it, then we'll know. I even tried a Neumann U87 and it failed my expectation so I sold it.


After some further research, the Shure SM7B requires the preamp to be capable of outputting 60db gain to take fully take advantage of the SM7B capability. I'm not sure of the Neumann U87 preamp requirement. Before you give the SM7B a try, make sure your mixer/preamp can put out 60db gain. My mixer Mixwizard WZ3 has 60db preamp output, so I will give this a try. I'll report back when after trying out.

Hey,
If you can get by with wired mics, then you can get the equivalent shure beta87a (Used $150 and new $250) and the shure KSM9 (used $500 and new $700)as recommended by AZNwonderboy.

Base on my sound setting, the 2 Audix are very present and sound beautiful on female voice, and I'm setting the 2 Shure for Male vocal. The Newmann for recording and sound so nice on male and female voices .

Very nice collection...I love the KMS105...and hate the SM58 with a passion (on my soft voice.) OM5 and OM2 are good for deep voices. Beta87a are very good too.

I take from this topic that the Neumann KMS105 is the best wired one to use? $700 for a microphone is a lot! I want to get one but wondering if it gonna sound a lot better than my Boston $100 microphone?

Shure SM 58 is the choice for many band singers. They have now have a model with on/off switch.

I saw this one used for $2600. Anyone tried it before? It's a wired microphone but very expensive.
Neumann U87

Neumann U87


Hi VCD,

I think the Neumann U87 is a different league altogether. I'm sure when setup properly, it will record and properly sounds phenomenal.
AZNwonderboy tried it before and said it didn't do anything for him.
From what I can tell, the more expensive the mic, the more you'll need to spend on your preamp in order to take advantage of the mic capability.

For example, the Shure SM7B (only $350) has a lot of good reviews and it is considered a very good mic, but it requires the preamp to be capable of outputting 60db gain to take fully take advantage of the SM7B capability.
I'm sure that the Neumann U87 preamp requirement is similar.
If I had the money, I would definitely give the Neumann U87 a try and if necessary, buy the required preamp to properly drive this mic.

Does the Neumann KMS105 has any preamp requirement?

all mixers have preamp built in. The regular home karaoke system, the cheap kind, also has the preamp built it. These are really cheap. This is where they cut costs on these cheap home karaoke mixer, so if you have money or do some homework, stay away from the home karaoke mixer. The Neumann KMS105 would work with any mixer that has a mic input. The better the preamp, the better it will sound in my opinion.

If you want to start out right, then just buy the professional mixer like mackie vlz3 1402 or similar. It has a very decent preamp.

Some other mixers I've tried that are also good are
Mackie CFX12MKII
Mackie 1642 VLZ3
Yamaha MG166CX
Allen and Heath Mix Wizard3 16-2 (this is the best one)
