Manufacturer's Description from Schoeps

The V4 U is a studio vocal microphone that unites the outstanding technical characteristics typical of Schoeps with a timeless, classic design. The “look” of the V4 U is based on the Schoeps CM 51/3 microphone from 1951. But the V4 U is a thoroughly modern studio microphone. Its capsule, circuitry and mechanical construction are the result of extensive new development. It produces a warm, clear sonic character with smoothly rolled-off diffuse-field response. The V4’s newly designed electronics offer a very high maximum sound pressure level and excellent electromagnetic compatibility.

A unique 33 mm beveled collar around the diaphragm causes its directivity to increase steadily and smoothly at high frequencies, as in a large-diaphragm microphone. Meanwhile, the superior acoustic qualities of a small-diaphragm capsule are maintained. The capsule is elastically suspended internally to reduce handling noise and other solid-borne sound. The head can be angled +/- 20°. 

Available in either BLUE or GRAY finish.


• Optimal on-axis frequency response featuring a mild high-frequency lift
• Very smooth polar response - carefully controlled narrowing of the pattern at HF
• Diffuse-field response parallel to the 0° response with a gentle roll-off at high frequencies
• No irregularities in polar response occur at any frequency
• Directional pattern is never broader than Cardioid at any frequency
• Maximum sound pressure level of 145 dB SPL, Maximum output level = 5 V
• Output stage: Newly-developed bridge-type balanced output circuit 
• Truly symmetrical balanced output, Transformerless and without capacitors
• Low output impedance that is frequency independent
• Optimal protection from electromagnetic interference
• +48V phantom power via XLR-3

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.
