Neumann's Series 180 introduces the hypercardioid exhibiting KM185!

  • Hypercardioid polar pattern
  • Frequency range: 20 Hz - 20 kHz
  • Sensitivity at 1 kHz into 1 kohm: 10 mV/Pa
  • Rated impedance: 50 ohms
  • Rated load impedance: 1 kohms
  • Equivalent noise level: 15 dB-A (A-weighted)
  • Signal-to-noise ratio (rel. 94 dB SPL): 79 dB (A-weighted)
  • Maximum SPL for THD 0.5%: 142 dB
  • Maximum output voltage: 10 dBu
  • Also available as a stereo set

The KM185 features transformerless circuitry and an extremely smooth frequency response. With its hypercardioid characteristic, attenuation of sound incidence from the side or rear measures in at around 10 dB, with a minimum sensitivity at an angle of 120 degrees.

Since the original KM84 (on which the KM185 is based) self-noise has been lowered and dynamic range improved up to 24 dB.

    Get your microphone pointing exactly at the sweet spot with laser accuracy with the Aston Starlight stereo pair!

    • Small diaphragm condenser microphone pair with laser targeting
    • The addition of a Class 2 laser to the Starlight mic, with on/off switch, allows the user to recall mic positions in the studio so set up can be easily replicated
    • The Starlight has 3 modes of operation, courtesy of some very fancy front-end filtering between the capsule and PCB. You can chose between Vintage, Modern and Hybrid settings to get the perfect tone response for your application
    • Starlight utilises a 1.5mm solid stainless steel chassis, tumbled for up to 4 hours to achieve Aston's signature finish
    • Starlight employs an extremely fine-tuned discrete mic amp circuit with high-spec components, to achieve an extremely sensitive, low noise design with loads of headroom
    • Transducer Type: Capacitor
    • Directional Polar Pattern: Cardioid
    • Frequency Response: 20Hz – 20kHz (+/- 10dB)
    • Equivalent Noise Level: 15dB A-Weighted
