SCHOEPS offers special directional microphones and capsules for close pickup. Their reduction in low-frequency response compensates for proximity effect and helps to suppress both “popping” and ambient noise. Thus, P-series microphones can deliver broadcast quality even in loud arenas.
The microphones of the P series have a “P” in the product name. P means “proximity” and the corresponding low frequency attenuation. “XP” means a particularly strong low frequency attenuation. They are designed for close placement – “P”-types shouldn’t be used at a distance of more than 20 cm, “XP”-types even closer than 10 cm.

Compact Microphone for close pickup
– Cardioid pattern
– For pickup of speech or music at close range (under 20 cm)
– Moderate attenuation of low frequencies
– Preferred applications: close speech pickup
This cardioid microphone is designed for the very closest speech pickup, i.e. directly in front of the speaker’s mouth.
Its low-frequency rolloff is compensated by proximity effect. Thus it has (up to the point of its high-frequency emphasis) a flat frequency response for the speaker’s voice, while showing a rolloff at low frequencies for all sound that originates from a greater distance. As a result, background sounds are picked up less strongly than the person speaking.
