New small-diaphragm capsule architecture, with bevelled collar for controlling the polar response.
Warm, clear sonic character with smoothly rolled-off diffuse-field response.
Capsule head with adjustable tilt angle.
Optimal on-axis frequency response featuring a mild high-frequency lift.
Very smooth polar response; carefully-controlled narrowing of the pattern at high frequencies.
Diffuse-field response parallel to the 0° response, with a gentle roll-off at high frequencies.
Newly designed electronics offer a very high maximum sound pressure level.
The V4 U is the studio vocal microphone by SCHOEPS. It unites the outstanding technical characteristics typical of SCHOEPS with a timeless, classic design.
The “look” of the V4 U is based on the SCHOEPS CM 51/3 from 1951. But the V4 U is a thoroughly modern studio microphone. Its capsule, circuitry and mechanical construction are the result of extensive new development.
A 33-mm beveled collar causes the capsule’s directivity to increase steadily and smoothly at high frequencies, as in a largediaphragm microphone.
Meanwhile, the superior acoustic qualities of a small-diaphragm capsule like the extraordinarily smooth frequency and polar response are maintained.
The capsule is elastically suspended internally to reduce solid-borne sound such as handling noise.
