It is operational with a big dual-diaphragm capsule with three directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8.
A 10 dB attenuation switch can be found on the rear. It allows the microphone to handle sound pressure levels up to 127 dB without distortion.
Also, the low-frequency response can be reduced to compensate for the proximity effect.
