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.
– “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 instrum
The MK 4V was created in answer to requests for a cardioid with its main axis along the side. In addition to its usefulness in the concert hall, this capsule type is of particular value in speech rec
