  • The MK 2S exhibits a slight high-frequency emphasis for frontal sound incidence, with only a slight rolloff of high frequencies off axis and in the reverberant sound field.
    This frequency response characteristic falls between that of the MK 2 and the MK 2XS, making the capsule suitable for a wide range of applications.
  • The MK 2S has proven particularly useful in two- and three-microphone stereo arrays, where its placement near the reverberation radius of the sound field presents a sonically balanced pickup favored by many recording engineers. This model has become our most popular pressure transducer.

    For spaced microphone (A/B) stereo recording and especially the Decca Tree method, KA40 accessory spheres are recommended.
