We both liked KMS 105 for its clarity. No artificial boost in mid-high end.
Very good energy and clarity at the low end, the best in this price range. Without EQ it sounded "exactly" like my voice (I am a baritone with big dynamic range and reasonable vocal range D2 - G4).
If you want to save some money, the next choice (big surprise for us) was Telefunken M81, despite being a dynamic mic. The next after that was Senh e 965.
It is not a forgiving mic, might not be for everybody. It does not emphasize the mid-high range, which is "trendy" these days, and most mics tend to do that. It is very sensitive, all your mistakes will not be masked. Also it will not allow you to sing very close to it, 6" might be the best.
To summarize, It is a great neutral and clear mic, seems to be the best in its price range for my voice.
Hands down my favorite mic out of all my current mics. A steep jump in price from the Beta58A. Bought it after reading reviews and I cannot be happier. Singing is more effortless and natural for me now. Gain before feedback seems a lot higher. First day of rehearsal got a lot of compliments without mentioning a change in mics. Honestly makes me want to sing more. With other mics, I was never satisfied with tone and always blamed my technique along with room resonant frequencies. This has honestly worked in the 5+ venues with tried it at. Effortless is all I can say.
