Manufacturer's Description from Schoeps

Overview

  • Wide cardioid pattern
  • Especially consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
  • High-frequency elevation for brilliance of sound
  • Often preferred for use when recording vocals, acoustic guitar or percussion
 
The frequency response of the MK 21H rises at high frequencies, reaching +4 dB at 7 kHz. Unlike most other condenser microphones, this capsule's response does not then roll off, but “stays up” even at very high frequencies.
 
As with our MK 21, the frequency response of this model is exceptionally consistent for all directions of sound incidence.
 

Application

This capsule type is an outgrowth of our field experience with the MK 21. It embodies suggestions made by various pop musicians who wished certain instruments (such as percussion, acoustic guitar and vocals) to be reproduced with a touch of additional brightness, while maintaining the essential uniformity of response to sound originating anywhere in the capsule's front hemisphere.

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.
