The Schoeps MK 5 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 MK 5 is a true pressure transducer with smooth, extended low-frequency response, low sensitivity 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 its full directionality even at very low frequencies. The benefits of this design in purity and clarity of sound are immediately audible.

The MK 5 has a slight high-frequency emphasis as compared with the corresponding single-pattern omni (MK 2) and cardioid (MK 4).

Schoeps MK 5 Features:

  • Omnidirectional and cardioid patterns, mechanically switchable
  • Slight emphasis of the high frequencies
  • Broad range of applications
  • Preferred uses similar to those of the MK 2 or MK 2S and the MK 4:
    • 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
    • Omni Setting:  For recording instruments, singers, etc. at relatively close range
