als pro-user einfach nur begeistert, knackige mitten, super bass, smooth top end. klasse verarbeitet, top zubehör. bevor man sich schoeps, neumann, sennheiser kauft sollte man sich unbedingt die ksm 137 oder 141 anhören. die ksm haben einen klasse ausgewogenen sound. bestnoten!

bonne qualitée
Aurelien, 29.01.2017
très bon micro , je les trouve assez neutres il respecte très bien le son enregistré , aucune surprise a l'écoute , c'est pour ça que je les ais choisis , j'utilisais des oktava precedements ça souffle, pas de gain et ça colore ; les KSM 137 n'ont pas ces défaut ( par rapport a mes besoins ) les réglages sur les micros sont les bien vus et efficaces , un peu difficile d'acces et idem pour les pinces micro on est sur qu'il ne tomberont pas, mais pour les enfilés faut le faire délicatement et ne pas forcé sur lé capsule ( tete)
jolie micros , petites boites pour les rangé correctement , c'est de bon micro , j'ais hesité avec les KM184 aussi , mais je ne regrette absolument pas ... la difference de prix avec avec les oktava est personnellement justifié , mais pas avec avec des KM184 qui sont excessif a comparés des shures .
j'asi hesité avec desSM81 , mais il ne les vendent pas par paire , sinon il ont l'air vraiment tres proches
j'ais reçus un micro qui a fonctionné 4H et puis un trucs a disfonctionné ( gresillment et un petit de qqchose ) , pas de souçis avec thomann renvoyé et echangé depuis plus d'une 40H d'enregistrement avec aucun souçis ça roule :)
bref super micro ...

Après avoir essayé ces micros sur un piano à queue, je préfère le son des sm81.
