Schoeps MK 5 Switchable Cardioid/Omni - Matte Gray
The Schoeps MK 5 offers two selectable directional patterns, but uses only one membrane – a no-compromise approach. The fact that full response is maintained to the highest audible frequencies is unusual for a switchable-pattern microphone.
In its omnidirectional setting the MK 5 is a true pressure transducer with smooth, extended low-frequency response, low sensitivity to most wind and breath noise, handling noise or mechanical vibration, and no proximity effect.
Unlike conventional, dual-diaphragm multi-pattern microphones, its cardioid setting retains its full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design in purity and clarity of sound are immediately audible.
The MK 5 has a slight high-frequency emphasis as compared with the corresponding single-pattern omni (MK 2) and cardioid (MK 4).
The MK 5 is nearly an all-purpose capsule. It is recommended for those starting out with the Schoeps Colette series, unless particular circumstances (such as the need for greater directivity or a bidirectional pattern) would indicate a different choice.
- Omni and cardioid patterns, mechanically switchable
- Slight emphasis of the high frequencies
- Broad range of applications
