Sennheiser MKH416 Shotgun Mic

The classic shotgun microphone

  • Sennheiser was the pioneer in the development of shotgun microphones: first from 1956 with the dynamic MD82, later from 1964 with the first shotgun condenser microphones MKH804 and MKH805
  • the MKH416 was introduced in 1975 and was one of the first Sennheiser microphones with 48 V phantom power
  • relatively short shotgun, low weight (175 g)
  • high directivity: combination of supercardioid (up to 2 kHz) and lobe (from 2 kHz)
  • weatherproof due to the radio-frequency circuitry, also relatively insusceptible to wind and popping noises
  • low self-noise; high feedback rejection
  • slight boost of the high frequencies
  • Rycote wind shields available for hire for both rental copies
  • manufacturing period: since 1975

Favourite applications: industry standard for film and television, also suitable for outdoor use
