Because of the superior resolution and linear frequency response, it is very easy forthe artist using the KMS 105 to identify whether he or she is âon micâ.Acoustic features When compared to other handheld vocal microphones,the KMS 105 offers a superior resolution of the voice, with extended frequency response and accurate transientdetail. Sibilance problems common to other handheld condenser mics are eliminated.No foam is used in the basket, thus eliminating any âcloudingâ or âmufflingâ of the sound.Also, by using a DC-polarized studio condenser capsule, all the nuances of the voice come through with subtlety, power and focus.The K 105 capsule was developed from the K 50, found in the KMS 150, KM 150 and KM 185 microphones. The K 105 features a supercardioid pattern, achieved byspecially modifying the response of the K 50 pressure gradient transducer.||—||The C414 XL II is the successor of the famous C414 B-TL II.

The pickup pattern is Supercardioid which has a little more rear-pickup than you'd think; but sound quality alone trumps this small annoyance. The think that separates the 87A from the rest of the Shure handheld pack is that it is a condenser microphone - so don't use it on terribly loud sound sources. It works best for me on vocals that nice more hi-end definition.
Overall, it earns every one of the five stars I gave it - and buying on Amazon saves you a ton of coin over the big box competitors!
Make sure you have phantom power enabled on your board or you won't get any signal from the mic.
