  • three different directional patterns available
  • offers protection from plosive sounds
    ("popping") and handling noises
Protection from plosive sounds (vocal "popping") can be achieved with conventional windscreens; but the more effective these are, the greater the risk to the other parameters of the microphone's performance.

Schoeps handheld microphones, however, use a very effective windscreen as the basic element of their design, into which a special capsule is integrated.

Protection from solid-borne noise is achieved in Schoeps handheld microphones by means of a progressively elastic mounting for all the functional elements.

As with the CMC 6-, the CMH 6- can operate at any standard 12V-48V phantom powering.

CMH 64 with Cardioid pattern

When there is simultaneous loudspeaker transmission, the risk of acoustic feedback is reduced by the low-frequency roll-off and the directional characteristic, provided that the performer stays on-axis and away from the loudspeakers.

Proximity effect compensates for the loss of bass when used at close distances.

CMH 641 with Supercardioid pattern

Protects against feedback

Greatest directivity and low-frequency roll-off, thus the best suppression of acoustic feedback and ambient noise

Proximity effect compensates for the loss of bass when used at close distances.
