Cardioid, Side-Addressed (Close Pickup) Microphone Capsule

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


  • Cardioid, side-addressed for close speech pickup (<20 cm)
  • Low-frequency response rolloff (-6 dB at 100 Hz)
  • Polar diagram identical as MK 4V
  • Preferred applications: close speech pickup, also available in the HSC 4VP headset

This cardioid capsule is designed for the very closest speech pickup, i.e. directly in front of the speaker?s mouth.

Its low-frequency rolloff is compensated by proximity effect. Thus it has (up to the point of its high-frequency emphasis) a flat frequency response for the speaker?s voice, while showing a rolloff at low frequencies for all sound that originates from a greater distance. As a result, background sounds are picked up less strongly than the person speaking.
