- for pickup of speech or music at close range (under 50 cm)
- directional pattern highly uniform throughout the frequency range
- considerable attenuation of low frequencies
- speach capsule with excellent suppression of ambient noise
In its frequency response and in the range of its applications this microphone type resembles the MK 4S or CCM 4S, but due to its greater directivity it attenuates reverberant sound further, and it is less prone to feedback.
The rolloff of its low-frequency response is offset by proximity effect at close working distances
