The Twin Science MK2 - our 2 capsule mono microphone: one omni microphone pointing outwards of the dish, and one cardioid capsule facing the dish inwards. Since both microphone capsules are within the focal area of the parabolic dish and routed to a separate left and right channel, the output channels are easily separated in post production. For the MK2 version, the microphones has been matched further for greater performance and the windshield upgraded for a higher quality 45 PPF Cell Foam material The Twin Science MK2 is highly resistant against humidity and water.

Pair the Twin Science MK2 with the PRO-8 MK2 handle and a Telinga dish of choice and you have a complete parabolic microphone setup for many different applications.

Two factory set focus positions makes it easy to adjust each capsule for maximum performance:

1) Omni track: by positioning the Twin Science MK2 all the way in - towards the dish, until stop  2) Cardioid track: by positioning the Twin Science with the mic connector placed side to side with the included mounting kit. 


  • Omni microphone track (Ch.1): very low noise aprx. 12 dB-A with great tolerance to handling and wind noise. A soft frequency response in the higer spectrum with a transparent and wide pickup for a "warm" sound.
  • Cardioid microphone track (Ch.2): greater frequency response with maximum attenuation of surrounding sounds, resulting in a very "focused" sound. Since the cardioid microphone faces towards the dish, it optimizes the reflected sound of the distant subject and suppresses the background, thereby improving the directivity by concentrating on the sound reflected by the dish.
  • Please note: the cardioid capsule is sensitive to handling and wind noise - therefore the large windshield for the dish is recommended.
