NAB Sneak Peek: Redding Displays Schoeps Headset

Schoeps microphone matched with Ultrasone headphones in headset package

The NAB Show floor (actually floors) is massive. It would be impossible to truly see everything so unless you are a specialist with a defined booth list, you’re probably going to miss treasures at the smaller booths lodged between the bigger spreads.

Such a case is the Schoeps HSC 4VXP headsets, distributed in the United States by Redding Audio.

The HSC 4VXP matches a Schoeps CCM 4VXS cardioid microphone with Ultrasone HFI 680 closed-back headphones.

Schoeps says that the mic “offers a steep bass rolloff and a mild high-frequency boost. It is designed for lateral sound pickup at the shortest possible distance, i.e. directly in front of the speaker’s mouth. Proximity effect compensates for its low-frequency rolloff such that the microphone has an even frequency response for the person speaking, while background noise encounters the full response rolloff and is greatly reduced.”

The opposite-side earcup can be rotated away from the ear. A swappable B5 pop screen is included.
