Pure and resilient
The combination of the elastic capsule mount and selectable filters reduces impact and structure-borne noise to an absolute minimum. The MK microphones feature a low inherent self-noise and a maximum sound pressure level of 140 dB. This transforms them into sophisticated listeners that deliver crisp signals, even with wide dynamics and loud sources.
The MK8 features a 24-carat, gold-plated 1” diaphragm that provides you with a sound that you can only obtain from a true condenser microphone.
A sound that is warm, powerful and finely resolved across the audio frequency spectrum. Consequently, the finest nuances of vocals, speech and instruments will retain their natural presence.
Despite their detailed and fine studio sound, the MK mics are incredibly rugged tools. Their compact electronics, superior materials and zinc die-cast casing ensure that they are the perfect partner for rough recording environments.
