Hypercardioid Miniature Microphone Capsule Head

Overview

The Neumann AK 50 microphone capsule is part of the KM 100 miniature series microphone systems. The AK 50 microphone element features a pressure gradient, single diaphragm transducer with a hyper-cardioid polar pattern.

The hyper-cardioid polar pattern is highly effective in reducing off-axis ambiance and noise. Attenuation of sound from the side or rear is about 10dB with the least sensitivity at an angle of 120 degrees. This allows the element to be used in recording and sound reinforcement applications, in front of stage.

Features

  • Hypercardioid Polar Pattern
    The AK 50 element features a hyper-cardioid pick up pattern which is effective in minimizing room ambiance, monitor noise and other off-axis signal.
  • Modular Design
    The capsule is developed for use with the KM100 and KM100F modular power supplies.
