The MK-220 features two magnetic reed switches, a low frequency filter and a -10dB pad for high sound pressure levels. Also located on the body is the pattern selector switch. The microphone is intended for studio and broadcast use with a smooth frequency response from 20Hz to 20KHz with a subtle presence rise giving warmth and clarity to the human voice.
