Schoeps MK 2 Series Omnidirectional Capsules w/ Options

Omnidirectional microphones - if constructed as single-diaphragm transducers, as all SCHOEPS omnidirectional microphones and capsules are - can be considered optimal due to their excellent reproduction of low frequencies and extremely low noise (with SCHOEPS as low as 11 dB(A)). The various types differ in the extent of their high-frequency response elevation, which compensates for the high-frequency losses in the diffuse sound field. Thus we offer both “free field equalized” and “diffuse field equalized” transducers as well as two in-between types.

There are 4 omnidirectional capsules, each with their own individual characteristics suited to different environments. Here is an explanation of the changes in the way Schoeps microphones are named and how each capsule differs:

Schoeps MK 2

MK 2 Omnidirectional Capsule

  • Omnidirectional pattern
  • Very flat frequency response
  • Corrected for a free sound field
  • For use close to the sound source (frontal sound)
  • Often preferred for relatively close miking of instruments, vocalists, etc.

Schoeps MK 2H

MK 2H Omnidirectional Capsule, Mild HF lift for medium recording distances

  • Omnidirectional pattern
  • Mild high-frequency rise to compensate for losses at medium recording distance
  • Often chosen for “spaced microphone” stereo pickup and “Decca Tree” arrangements

Schoeps MK 2S

MK 2S Omnidirectional Capsule, Slight HF lift for medium recording distances

  • Omnidirectional pattern
  • Slight high-frequency rise to compensate for losses at medium recording distance
  • For a very wide range of recording applications
  • Often preferred for “spaced microphone” stereo pickup and “Decca Tree” arrangements

MK 2XS Omnidirectional Capsule, Strong HF Boost (formerly the MK 3 Capsule)

  • Omnidirectional pattern
  • Diffuse-field capsule
  • For miking distances at which the predominant sound is no longer direct
  • Useful for relatively distant placement in reverberant environments – as a room microphone, for “spaced microphone” stereo pickup and in “Decca Tree” arrangements

Applications

Please note that 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.”

The MK 2 is often used for acoustical measurement, an application for which it has gained a considerable reputation.

A mechanical adapter (type AMBK 1, from 20 mm to 1" diameter) is available for calibration with B&K devices. Please note that because of dimensional tolerances, only the nickel-finish version of the MK 2 can be used with this adapter.
