Neumann Launches New Live Sound Products

Expands range of condenser capsule heads for wireless systems and expands the MCM system


Neumann.Berlin's KK 104 U and KK 105 U along with the expanded line of Miniature Clip Microphone System add to the brand's commitment to deliver exceptional sonic clarity to its consumers


Neumann.Berlin launched several new products for stage use at NAMM 2024. The KK 104 U and KK 105 U condenser capsule heads make the famous Neumann sound accessible to users of third-party* wireless systems. In addition, Neumann expanded its Miniature Clip Microphone System (MCM) with an omnidirectional capsule as well as goosenecks and cables in various lengths.

Neumann Sound for all Wireless Systems


With the KK 104 U and KK 105 U capsule heads, users can now experience acoustic excellence for wireless systems for third-party manufacturers such as Sony, Lectrosonics, MiPro, and Shure


Neumann's true condenser capsule heads for Sennheiser wireless systems have been popular for many years. Until now, however, the sound quality of Neumann capsule heads was exclusive to users of Sennheiser handheld transmitters. With the new capsule head variants KK 104 U (cardioid) and KK 105 U (supercardioid), studio sound on stage is now also available for wireless systems from third-party manufacturers: Sony (all models), Lectrosonics (all models), MiPro (ACT Series), Shure (Axient Digital, ULX-D, QLX-D und SLX-D Series).

"Although we are convinced of the superior quality of Sennheiser wireless systems, many users have no option to change because the system is a given," explains Stephan Mauer, Head of Product. "The new KK 104 U and KK 105 U capsule heads now also offer genuine Neumann sound in conjunction with third-party* wireless systems. So there is no longer any reason for our customers to settle for anything less than the original."

The new capsule heads are available in black, silver and also in individual designs (made to order).

New Options for Neumann's MCM System


The KK 13 omnidirectional capsule, designed for the Miniature Clip Microphone System offers similar sound as the KK 14 cardioid capsule, but comes with an omnidirectional pickup pattern and zero proximity effect


Also presented at NAMM 2024 will be the KK 13 omnidirectional capsule for the Miniature Clip Microphone System (MCM) as an alternative to the standard KK 14 cardioid capsule. The sound of the KK 13 is similarly balanced but appears more open than that of the KK 14 cardioid capsule due to its omnidirectional pickup pattern. In addition, there is no proximity effect.

The KK 13 is recommended for quiet stages or pure recording scenarios where a particularly natural sound is required and the low feedback resistance of an omnidirectional capsule presents no problem. The KK 13 will only be available as a separate item; all MCM instrument sets continue to be supplied with the KK 14 cardioid capsule.

The MCM system is complemented by two new goosenecks SH 100 and SH 250, which are 50 mm shorter and 100 mm longer respectively than the standard gooseneck SH 150 at 150 mm. The popular MCM 114 set vio/vla for violin and viola will from now on be supplied with the shorter gooseneck SH 100. All other sets will continue to include the standard SH 150 gooseneck. Available as separate items will be cables of different lengths. As an alternative to the standard cables of 1.8 m (ca. 6 ft), there will be short cables of 0.6 m (ca. 2 ft) and extra-long cables of 3.0 m (ca. 10 ft) for all four connector types (Mini Jack, LEMO, Microdot, Mini-XLR4).

"We are looking forward to increasingly serving the live market with reference solutions to bring Neumann sound to the stage," explains Neumann's CEO Ralf Oehl. "The MCM system has quickly become the new benchmark in instrument miking and is now being successively supplemented with additional elements. The KK 13 omnidirectional capsule is a great option for quieter stages and recording. And the new capsule heads finally give all users, across all wireless systems, a vocal sound without compromise that seamlessly matches the studio recording."
