1990 - The KFM 6 Sphere Microphone

In 1990, Schoeps caused a stir with its implementation of the sphere microphone invented by Dr. Theile. This first sphere microphone was designated the KFM 6. A special version for surround recordings was the KFM 360 which appeared in 1999.

The main advantages of the KFM 6 are:

- head-related stereo microphone for loudspeaker reproduction
- very good imaging and sense of depth; good localization,
very natural sound
- with qualities of a dummy head when headphones are used for listening
- natural sound with superior low-frequency performance

The KFM 6 sphere microphone is still manufactured today. You find it described at www.schoeps.de
