Description

Sennheiser MKH-416 Top Mic

The Sennheiser MKH-416 top mic transformer-less, RF condenser is designed as a combination of pressure gradient and interference tube microphones. Very good feedback rejection, low proximity effect, 130 dB/SPL. Rugged and resistant to changing climate conditions. Ideal for camera mounting.

This option comes with the foamy wind cover and short XLR cable, perfect for mounting onto a camera. If you are looking for a boom mic option the check out the Sennheiser MKH-416 Boom Mic which includes a blimp windshield and ‘Dead Cat’ fluffy, and pistol grip which can also be attached to a boom pole.

The Sennheiser MKH-416 top mic is our top end directional microphone. The Sennheiser ME66 is our all round multipurpose rifle mic, but when you are after something with that little extra sensitivity, the the MKH-416 is the mic for you. It has very low inherent self-noise and a transformer-less and fully floating balanced output. The 416 is highly immune to humidity in all conditions.  It’s rugged design makes it suitable for adverse climatic conditions and it is extremely stable.

Its excellent directional ability and compact design, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection make the MKH-416 top mic a superb all-around microphone for film, radio and television, especially for outside broadcast applications. The 416 employs RF-technology to control residual microphone noise. Optimizing the transducer’s acoustic impedance results in a further improvement in low noise performance. The comparatively low RF-voltage across the elements of the transducer also eliminates arcing and DC-bias creeping currents. Hypercardioid at low and medium frequency, above 2kHz approaches lobar pattern.  Lower gain on input channels required.
