The matte gray MK 5 Microphone Capsule from Schoeps offers 2 selectable directional patterns, but uses only 1 membrane.
In its omnidirectional setting, the MK 5 Microphone Capsule 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.
In its cardioid setting, the MK 5 Microphone Capsule retains its full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design in purity and clarity of sound are immediately audible. Additionally, the MK 5 has a slight high-frequency emphasis.
