  • 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 €œlook€ 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.

    The “V4 USM Set" contains the microphone, a wooden case and the USM-V4 elastic suspension. The usage of the “V4 USM Set" is recommended for maximum solid-borne sound isolation.


    • Studio Vocal Microphone
    • 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 Capsule

    • 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.

    The Electronics

    • Newly-developed bridge-type balanced output circuit.
    • Maximum sound pressure level of 144 dB SPL, corresponding to an output level of 4.8 V.
    • Output stage transformerless and free of coupling capacitors.
    • The resulting output impedance is low and constant with frequency, while the symmetry is very high.
    • Symmetrical, balanced output, the entire audio circuit is symmetrical from the output of the FET onward.
    • High immunity to interference, with gapless shielding and a modern RFI filter at the output; very good electromagnetic compatibility.
