Microphone capsule MK 2H
- omnidirectional pattern
- mild high-frequency rise to compensate for losses at medium recording distance
- often chosen for “spaced microphone” stereo pickup and “Decca Tree” arrangements
If this microphone capsule is used indoors at medium recording distances (i.e. where direct sound energy is similar in amount to reflected sound energy), its overall response will be linear. Its extended frequency response and low noise make it appropriate for the most demanding applications.
The sound inlet of the MK 2H is narrower than that of our other pressure transducers, causing a slight, purely acoustic response elevation above 6 kHz. This reduces the high frequency loss for diffuse sound, thus helping to preserve natural sound quality.
