Schoeps CMIT 5U Overview

The Schoeps CMIT 5U Shotgun Microphone and Rycote Windshield Kit is a shotgun microphone and windshield kit designed for mono recording of dialog and instruments indoors or outdoors in windy conditions. It includes a CMIT 5U shotgun condenser microphone, Rycote windshield, removable windjammer, foam windscreen, and wood box. The CMIT 5U boasts a supercardioid/lobe-shaped polar pattern, wide frequency response, excellent off-axis rejection, two low-cut filter settings, and a selectable high-frequency shelving boost. The included Rycote windshield provides effective protection against noise from wind, a shock-isolating Lyre mic mount, and a tidy exit for the integrated Mogami cable, in a compact enclosure.

Schoeps CMIT 5 Shotgun Microphone (Blue)

Sized between the short MiniCMIT and the long SuperCMIT, the blue Schoeps CMIT 5 shotgun microphone is an excellent all-around boom mic for indoor and outdoor applications. Highly regarded for film, TV, and location recording, the CMIT 5 offers customizable tone and predictable directionality, even when rotated.

Three selectable filters let you manage boom noise, proximity effect, high-frequency emphasis to ensure balanced, professional audio quality. Special construction and filtering effectively inhibits interference from various sources such as radio, TV, and cellular frequencies.

The CMIT 5's supercardioid/lobar polar pattern yields directional characteristics that smoothly increase at higher frequencies while providing low off-axis coloration for natural sound at all angles. With low self-noise, moderate sensitivity, and high SPL handling, the CMIT 5 delivers sonic performance deserving of premium mic preamps.

Professional Sound Quality

Thanks to a polar pattern that stays the same in the vertical and horizontal planes, the CMIT 5 produces consistent sound quality at any point of rotation. With directionality that increases smoothly at high frequencies and an accurate 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, the CMIT 5 is optimized for neutral, transparent capture of dialogue, foley, sound effects, and instruments. Considering its low self-noise of 13 dBA and moderate sensitivity of -35 dB, it performs best when paired with a clean, high-gain mic preamp.

Customizable Tone

Though the CMIT 5 is engineered to yield a neutral sonic signature, it offers three buttons to alter its tonal balance. Turn on the treble emphasis for a 5 dB boost at 10 kHz, which increases speech intelligibility and helps compensate for high-frequency loss caused by windscreens. Activate the gentle bass roll-off filter (6 dB/octave below 300 Hz) to offset proximity effect, and use the steep low-cut filter (18 dB/octave below 80 Hz) to suppress boom noise and rumble.

Pairs of LEDs next to each push button indicate the status of the filters. Even in darkness, the user can read the settings and see that the microphone is operational. The settings are retained when the microphone is switched off.

RFI Shield

The CMIT 5 utilizes special construction and filtering to provide a high standard of measurable immunity from radio-frequency interference (RFI) caused by sources such as switching power supplies, lighting controls, AM/FM radio, digital radio and TV, cellular phones, and broadband communications. The switches in the CMIT 5 are mounted on a circuit board with an integrated shielding layer, thereby providing a fully-sealed housing for the rest of the circuitry.

Phantom Powered

The CMIT 5 features a balanced 3-pin XLR output and support for phantom power over 34 VDC, making it compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters, as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.

Ideal for Boompole Mounting

Mount the CMIT 5 directly on a stand or boompole using the supplied mic clip, or place it in the separately available Rycote INV-7 InVision shockmount to prevent the transfer of vibrations to the microphone.

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The CMIT 5 includes a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the Rycote Cyclone Windshield Kit (Medium) blimp-style windshield and suspension system (available separately).

Rycote Windshield Kit for Sennheiser MKH416 & Other Select Shotgun Microphones

This Windshield Kit from Rycote is intended for use with the Sennheiser MKH416 and other select shotgun microphones. It can be used with a Schoeps CMIT5U or a Rode NTG3 shotgun microphone and is a complete modular windshield system including a suspension mount, a windjammer, a windshield, cables, and other essentials. This kit is a suitable solution for anyone who does not already own a suspension mount or windjammer.

Compatible Microphones

The Windshield Kit 416, optimized for the Sennheiser MKH416, is also fully compatible with other top shotgun microphones, such as the Schoeps CMIT 5U, DPA 4017B, Sanken CS-3e and CS-2, Neumann KMR 81i, and Rode NTG3

Fits Like a Glove

The 14.5" basket of the Windshield Kit 416 perfectly ensconces the Sennheiser MKH416 and other compatible shotgun microphones, as does the included shock mount

Lyre Microphone Isolation

A 72-shore Lyre suspension system isolates the microphone; this, in conjunction with the included and captive cable, minimizes handling noise

RF-Shielded XLR

This kit includes the Rycote 90° Shortie XLR inside the basket, which sports a built-in RF Shield to aid in facilitating clean audio capture from condenser microphones in dirty RF environments

Included Windjammer

The included Windjammer facilitates wind attenuation while preserving transparent audio transmission

Boom Adapter and XLR Holder

An included adapter attaches to boompoles via industry standard female 3/8" UNC brass thread attachment, while an offset Cyclone Series XLR holder sits outside the shield to hold the tail of the XLR cable firmly in place
