Schoeps MK 2 H


Microphone Capsule

Its appearance distinguishes this type of microphone from the other SCHOEPS pressure transducers. The typical grille is missing, and the sound inlet has been narrowed by a gold-plated ring compared to the other types. This change leads to a frequency response raised above 6 kHz (to compensate for high frequency losses).

Similar to the MK 2S or CCM 2S, where the treble boost begins about an octave lower, this type of microphone will only be used in the near field if slight brilliance is desired, something at which the MK 2H and the CCM 2H are not as strong. But their real field of application lies at a greater distance from the sound source, for example in the area of the reverb radius when recording large orchestras.

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

Das kleine Quantum extra
Gabriel Wolf 25.04.2021
Schoeps as usual: perfect.

Klang wie erwartet: sauber, unaufdringlich und doch brilliant.

Im direkten Vergleich mit MK 5g (Kugel) ein µ ausgewogener. Im etwas unfairen Vergleich mit Nieren (z.B. MK4) deutlich natürlicher.

Was ich an Schoeps so liebe: sie stören nicht. Kein Rauschen, keine Störsignale von angeschalteten Handys, keine Verfärbungen.

Die MK2 Hg sind das optimale Hauptmikro für klassische Musik.

Die MK2 Hg sind Jeden Cent wert!
