Neumann KU 100 EU 230 V DUMMY HEAD STEREO MIC, BLACK (WITH EXTERNAL PSU, IC 5 MIC CABLE, AC 20 ADAPTOR CABLE, IN ALUMINIUM CASE)
The dummy head has its place, even in the age of surround sound. It is highly recommended by some audio engineers for the rear channels.
The KU 100 dummy head is a binaural stereo microphone. It resembles the human head and has two microphone capsules built into the ears. When listening through high-quality headphones it gives the illusion of being right at the scene of the acoustic events.
When using the KU 100 dummy head, the binaural stereo experience moves the listener into the scene of the original performance, in contrast to other space-related recording techniques, where the acoustic event is moved to the listener.
The dummy head is also used in many industrial applications as a measuring device, for example in acoustic research. The KU 100 can be operated with typical 48 V phantom powering, or from an external power supply unit, or from the built-in battery.
