PDFMKH20 Manual (pdf)

The MKH 20 is usually used as a main microphone for orchestras and solo instruments, and picks up the natural acoustics of the room, though it does have a much wider range of applications as omni-directional microphones do not suffer from proximity effect.


  • Microphone with omni-directional pick-up pattern
  • Exceptionally low inherent self-noise
  • Exceptionally flat frequency response, switchable for near and diffuse field applications
  • High frequency response can be accentuated by means of a special pressure build-up ring
  • Slightly increasing directivity at high frequencies to adjust tonal balance
  • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output—provides transparent sound
  • High sensitivity
  • Switchable pre-attenuation for recording high sound pressure levels
