Common name: Schoeps MK 4XP
Production Status: In production
The MK 4XP is a small diaphragm cardioid capsule for the Colette system. This cardioid capsule is designed for the very close speech pickup, under 10 cm, from the speaker’s mouth. Its low-frequency roll-off is compensated by proximity effect. Thus it has (up to the point of its high-frequency emphasis) a flat frequency response for the speaker’s voice, while showing a roll-off (-10 dB at 100 Hz) at low frequencies for all sound that originates from a greater distance. As a result, background sounds are picked up less strongly than the person speaking. The polar response is identical to that of the MK 4 cardioid capsule. Specifications shown refer to the capsule used in combination with the CMC6 xt preamplifier.
