Microphone Capsule MK 4V
- “vertical” (side-addressed) cardioid capsule
- for a very wide range of recording applications
- slight high-frequency emphasis
- often preferred for singing or speaking voices and most instruments
The directional response is especially well maintained even at higher frequencies, due to the acoustically transparent housing. There is less high-frequency emphasis of off-axis sound than occurs with most small, axial-response cardioids. The MK 4V still sounds somewhat brigher than the MK 4, however, because of its overall frequency response.
