Manufacturer's Description from Schoeps

Overview

  • Omnidirectional pattern
  • Very flat frequency response
  • Corrected for a free sound field
  • For use close to the sound source (frontal sound
  • Often preferred for relatively close miking of instruments, vocalists, etc.
 
This capsule type has a flat frequency response for frontal sound incidence. This yields a very natural sound when recordings are made within the reverberation radius, where the direct sound (frontal incidence) predominates over the reverberant sound (random angles of incidence).
 

Applications

Please note that there is some directivity at high frequencies due to the physics of sound wavelengths. Thus even with an omnidirectional microphone, it still matters which way the capsule is “aimed.”
 
The MK 2 is often used for acoustical measurement, an application for which it has gained a considerable reputation. 
 
A mechanical adapter (type AMBK 1, from 20 mm to 1" diameter) is available for calibration with B&K devices. Please note that because of dimensional tolerances, only the nickel-finish version of the MK 2 can be used with this adapter.

About Manufacturer

The focus on high quality, reliability and neutral accurate sound has been the production philosophy of Schoeps Microphones since 1948. The simple elegance and clever engineering of their products boast a true passion for the art of microphone making and a tireless attention to detail. The Colette System is the largest modular mic system available offering twenty different capsules and various active accessories. The newest addition to the acclaimed Colette System is the CMC 6 xt which offers extended frequency response beyond 40 kHz. The CCM Series mics are the smallest phantom powered non-electret microphones in the world. Other notables from Schoeps include the M222 Tube microphone, the VMS 5U portable two channel mic preamp and M/S matrix, three extremely unique stereo mics, the KFM-360 Surround microphone and the Polarflex Microphone System that allows the user to emulate the characteristics of any microphone. Schoeps is unquestionably among the most innovative microphone manufacturers in the world, leading the way in many developments. Central to its design philosophy over the years is the company's insistence on absolute sound neutrality of the microphones. It is really no wonder that Schoeps has so many supporters, not only in the area of classical music recording and reinforcement, but also in film and television. No doubt part of its success is due to the fact that, in a space of only 1500 square meters, a total of 35 employees develop, manufacture and distribute the whole range of Schoeps products. Staff turnover is very small, which says much about the family atmosphere in the company. Many an employee has celebrated his or her 25th anniversary with Schoeps. Continuity is and will remain very important at Schoeps. Despite many outside offers, Ulrich Schoeps intends to continue the life's work of his father.
