The Schoeps Microphone Capsule MK 2 has a flat frequency response for frontal sound incidence. This yields a very natural sound when recordings are made within the reverberation radius, where the direct sound (frontal incidence) predominates over the reverberant sound (random angles of incidence). The MK 2 is often used for acoustical measurement.
A mechanical adapter (type AMBK 1, from 20 mm to 1” diameter, sold separately) can be used only with the nickel-finish version of the MK 2 for calibration with B & K devices (sold separately) because of dimensional tolerances.
Note: There is some directivity at high frequencies due to the physics of sound wavelengths. Thus even with an Omnidirectional microphone, it still matters which way the capsule is aimed.
For use close to the frontal sound source
Often preferred for relatively close miking of instruments, vocalists, etc.
