Why buy the Neumann KM184?

Backed by Neumann’s 90+ years experience designing and manufacturing professional-grade recording equipment, if you’re ready to give your home studio a serious upgrade, the Neumann KM184 might just be the mic to kick things off. Here are our top three reasons to add it to your recording armory:
  • Manufacturing quality — Neumann, a German company founded in 1928, gave birth to the world’s first commercially available condenser microphone, so they know a thing or two about manufacturing superior-quality recording equipment. In other words, if you buy the KM184 you know you’re buying a mic to last.
  • Versatility — Touted as an all-rounder mic, the KM184 is best suited to instrumental recording but its consistent sound across any use case means it can be relied on for all forms of broadcasting, including podcasting.
  • Style — No doubt a subjective measure, but we love the look and feel of the Neumann KM184. If you’re a mic nerd like we are, you’ll appreciate its modern, streamlined overall aesthetic and its sleek, narrow body. A broadcast devotee’s dream.
