The matte gray MK 4VXS Microphone Capsule for Close Pickup from Schoeps features its main axis along its side and improves speech intelligibility in very loud environments. It is designed for very close 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 sound is picked up less strongly than the person speaking.
This microphone capsule should be used with the B 5 popscreen (sold separately) in order to prevent popping sounds from the voice. This capsule has proved itself especially when used in the broadcasting or recording of motor sporting events. In this case, it is attached to the user’s headphones.
