A stereo pair of Schoeps microphones, the set includes 2 CMC6U preamps, 2 MK5 switchable omni/cardioid capsules, 2 SG20 stand clamps, and two BD5 pop screens.

The MK5 capsule offers two selectable directional patterns, but uses only one membrane - a no-compromise approach. The fact that full response is maintained to the highest audible frequencies is unusual for a switchable-pattern microphone.

In its omnidirectional setting the MK5 is a true pressure transducer with smooth, extended low-frequency response, low sensitvity to most wind and breath noise, handling noise or mechanical vibration, and no proximity effect.

Unlike conventional dual-diaphragm multi-pattern microphones, its cardioid setting retains it full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design in purity an clarity of sound are immediately available.

The MK5 has a slight high-frequency emphasis as compared with the corresponding single-pattern omni (MK2) and cardioid (MK4).


  • Omni and cardioid patterns, mechanically switchable
  • Slight emphasis of the high frequencies
  • Broad range of applications
  • Preferred uses similar to those of the MK2 or MK2S and the MK4
  • In the cardioid setting: for use with singing or speaking voices or most instruments, as a spot microphone, and for stereo recording with coincident, ORTF or M/S microphone arrangements
  • In the omni setting: for recording instruments, singers, etc. at relatively close range
