A great sounding mic for male vocals
Megiddo, 16.08.2018
While I've read mixed reviews over the web, in my case the K2 works great. The vocals come out clear, well defined, somewhat thick and crunchy.
I haven't really played around with the omni & 8 figure patterns, but overall I'm pleased with the sound.
One thing to be careful about though is keeping a 'safe' distance from it. Coming too close can make it sound a bit too harsh / sibilant.

pros - very good sounding mic.
rugged design
cons - you really need a vocal booth as it is VERY sensitive.,
but it is a top level mic & that is not really a con.
I found it was picking up my computer's fan from over 6 M away
and this made it un-useable so i went back to my old beyer.
I moved the mic to the passage,
it was a lot better but still picked up noise
still the audio quality makes up for this. An excellent product.

So,that's what stuff should sound like

Switch it on, leave it to cook for about 30 minutes then whisper,shout, strum, blow or drum into it; this is near perfect for capturing every type of sound. By far, the best mic I've ever owned or heard.

Good

Upgraded from the Nt-1A and it made a huge difference. Great body and a bit forgiving when it comes to vocals (imho). Use it mainly with ART voice channel and that works like a charm.
