Join Bill Gibson for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating the Neumann KM 84 and KM 184, part of Microphone Techniques: Essentials.
- [Narrator] Let's take a look at some of these … frequency response charts. … There's really a lot that you can learn from these charts. … You can't learn everything about a microphone, … but you can learn a lot … about how to expect the microphone to perform. … This compares a classic Neumann KM84 … small diaphragm condenser mic … with the newer version of that microphone, the KM184. … I chose this comparison because you can see … that the KM 84 has a very, very flat frequency response. … It pretty much stays on the flat line … all the way from the top end almost to the bottom end. … It rolls off on the low end a little bit, … and the graph really stops at about 40 hertz, … but you can tell that this microphone hears … all frequencies at the same level. … And that's what that means, when you see … this kind of a line here, the red one, … that just goes straight up to the top. … That means that it's really hearing … all of the frequencies evenly. … Notice on the KM184 line that it starts down here …
