Description

This cardioid microphone is designed for the very closest speech pickup, i.e. directly in front of the speaker’s mouth.

Its low-frequency rolloff 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 rolloff 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.

Product History

  • 1994: Launch of the CCM, hybrid technology circuit. The capsule part is identical to the MK capsules from the beginning  
  • 2016: better RF filter to protect from interferences
  • 2017: Polarization voltage generator now with higher frequency above 200 kHz due to downpitching in sound design applications.
