The frequency response of the Schoeps MK 21H rises at high frequencies, reaching +4 dB at 7kHz. Unlike most other condenser microphones, this capsule's response does not then roll off, but “stays up” even at very high frequencies.

As with the MK 21, the frequency response of this model is exceptionally consistent for all directions of sound incidence.

This capsule type is an outgrowth of Schoeps' 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.


  • 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
