Schoeps MK 4VP

Cardioid, Side-addressed Microphone Capsule for Close Pickup


This cardioid capsule is designed for the very closest speech pickup, i.e. directly in front of the speaker’s mouth.

Its low-frequency roll-off is compensated by the proximity effect. Thus it has (up to the point of its high-frequency emphasis) a flat frequency response for the speaker’s voice while showing a roll-off at low frequencies for all sound that originates from a greater distance. As a result, background sounds are picked up less strongly than the person speaking.
