Good for vocal
Sergei_L 21.09.2023
I use this model as well as Sennheiser E 914 for vocal lessons over the Internet. As you probably know the working with voice is very demanding in ability to hear very small nuances. So I use it at approx 1 meter distance and it allows to work with the voice at the same method as in a class room. Comparing with E 914 it has not so high emphasises of high frequencies and I think a less distortion coming from off-axis sounds but it is just impression - I had no ability to make the test at the same recording conditions for both mics. Works perfectly well up to 44 db Gain from mic pre-amplifier.

Bon micro mais...
Thibault8540 11.03.2016
J'ai deux KSM137, pour divers enregistrements d'instruments acoustiques. Le son est très correct, manque bien entendu de graves (petite membrane oblige), mais il est assez fidèle.

Le seul reproche que j'aurais à lui faire est la tendance au larsen un peu trop présente. Ce n'est pas catastrophique, mais il partent plus vite que d'autres micro que j'utilise. Dommage !

Muy buen micro
tortosadrums 12.07.2020
Micrófono muy versátil y de calidad. Grabo baterías online y me recomendaron este micro para Hi Hats o como apoyo para el dinámico de la caja, y la verdad es que estoy encantado. Saca un sonido muy limpio y ofrece varias posibilidades de recorte de frecuencias. Muy parecido al SM81 pero más pequeño.
