The V4 U studio vocal mic unites outstanding technical characteristics with a timeless, classic design.

The “look” of the V4 U is based on the SCHOEPS CM 51/3 from 1951. But the V4 U is a thoroughly modern studio microphone. Its capsule, circuitry and mechanical construction are the result of extensive new development.

The Capsule

  • A 33-mm beveled collar causes the capsule’s directivity to increase steadily and smoothly at high frequencies, as in a large diaphragm microphone.
  • Meanwhile, the superior acoustic qualities of a small-diaphragm capsule like the extraordinarily smooth frequency and polar response are maintained.
  • The capsule is elastically suspended internally to reduce solid-bornesound such as handling noise.

The Electronics

  • Newly-developed bridge-type balanced output circuit.
  • Maximum sound pressure level of 144 dB SPL, corresponding to an output level of 4.8 V.
  • Output stage transformerless and free of coupling capacitors.
  • The resulting output impedance is low and constant with frequency, while the symmetry is very high.
  • Symmetrical, balanced output, the entire audio circuit is symmetrical from the output of the FET onward.
  • High immunity to interference, with gapless shielding and a modern RFIfilter at the output; very good electromagnetic compatibility.


  • New small-diaphragm capsule architecture, with bevelled collar for controlling the polar response.
  • Warm, clear sonic character with smoothly rolled-off diffuse-field response.
  • Capsule head with adjustable tilt angle.
  • Optimal on-axis frequency response featuring a mild high-frequency lift.
  • Very smooth polar response; carefully-controlled narrowing of the pattern at high frequencies.
  • Diffuse-field response parallel to the 0 ° response, with a gentle roll-off at high frequencies.
  • Newly designed electronics offer a very high maximum sound pressurelevel.


  • Directional pattern: Cardioid
  • Frequency range: 50 Hz - 22 kHz
  • Sensitivity: 16 mV/Pa
  • Equivalent noise level (A-weighted): 15 dB-A
  • Equivalent noise level (CCIR): 25 dB
  • Signal-to-noise ratio (A-weighted): 79 dB-A
  • Maximum sound pressure level at 0.5%: THD 144 dB-SPL
  • Maximum output voltage: 4.8 V
  • Low-cut frequency: 40 Hz
  • Powering voltage: 48 V
  • Current consumption: 3.3 mA
  • Length: 7.64"
  • Weight: .67lbs
