The V67i is a unique FET condenser mic, in that its dual-diaphragm capsule is tuned for two different voicings, “warm” and “bright.” The front diaphragm uses 6-micron Mylar, and the rear uses 8-micron Mylar. A switch beneath the gold headbasket allows selection of the front or rear.
Beneath the capsule, the microphone circuitry is the same as in the V67G (also a cardioid FET condenser).
The frequency response chart shows a significant difference in response between the two capsules, with the “bright” capsule being attenuated a few dB below 200 Hz and having a pronounced presence peak (possibly +10dB) at 9kHz. In contrast, the “warm” capsule is relatively flat above 30 Hz.
A red LED behind the grille indicates which capsule is in use.
