The CMIT 5 is Schoeps' shotgun microphone which has set a new standard for shotgun microphones since its release. The CMIT 5's directionality increases smoothly with higher frequencies, which results in a very balanced sonic character. In addition to this, the microphone's sound level decreases softly yet steadily for off-axis sounds, allowing these to be recorded neutrally as well as reducing the effects of movement during boom operation. The CMIT 5 also has a much stronger directionality than one might expect from a microphone of its length.

Three pushbutton-activated filters allow the microphone to adapt to the recording situation:

• High-frequency emphasis (+ 5 dB at 10 kHz) enhances speech intelligibility, and compensates for high-frequency loss
   caused by windscreens
• A steep low-cut filter (18 dB/oct. below 80 Hz) suppresses wind and boom noise
• A gentle low-frequency rolloff (6 dB/oct. below 300 Hz) compensates for proximity effect


• Unusually low coloration of off-axis sound
• Suitable for music recording as well as dialogue
• Rotationally symmetrical polar pattern
• Even greater immunity to wind noise than a Schoeps supercardoid
• Very lightweight, robust all-metal housing
