The KU 100 is a dummy head microphone designed for a truly immersive binaural listening experience with headphones. Two omnidirectional condenser capsules are built into artificial ears mounted on an enclosure resembling a human head. Although it uses only two channels, its spatial depiction appears three dimensional and extremely realistic.
KU 100 recordings played back over high quality headphones thus give the listeners an experience almost identical to what they would have heard with their own ears at the recording position, with stunning lateral and vertical localization and a breathtaking sense of space and a room decay that surrounds the listener. Immersive sound has never been easier; simply place the KU 100 at the optimal listening position.
Unlike older dummy head microphones, the KU 100 is compatible with loudspeaker playback, too, creating a stereo image similar to conventional microphones yet with a superior sense of space and depth.
Thanks to its state-of-the-art transformerless circuitry, the KU 100 has very low self-noise and can handle high sound pressure levels of up to 135 dB without audible distortion and up to 145 dB with the –10 dB preattenuation switch activated. A second switch offers three low cut options, 150 Hz, 40 Hz, and linear. Both switches affect both channels. The KU 100 has a balanced XLR 5 stereo output and unbalanced BNC outputs.
Three powering options are available: P48 phantom power, internal battery, or external PSU (included).
