THIS IS THE BEST MICROPHONE FOR ON SET RECORDING - PERIOD

Comments about Sennheiser Deluxe Shotgun Microphone Kit and Right Angled XLR Cables:

Sennheiser MKH-416 (P48) Super-Cardioid Short Shotgun MicLet me give a little back-story on this one. I have been working at Warner Bros Studios as a supervisor in post production for almost 10 years now. I have been in charge of overseeing dailies coming into the studio. I have worked with all the best sound mixers in the industry. Not only have I had equipment and spec meetings with every sound mixer coming into the studio, but I have also had the opportunity to talk to the dub stage mixers during the mix of our features. Back in 2006 I was looking for a great microphone to do ADR recording for a professional trailer. One of the older experienced mixers said there is only one mic that has the most dynamic yet clean recording for dialogue - both on set and in the ADR studio. The Sennheiser-MKH 416. He gave it such a stellar review I didn't even think twice about considering a different microphone.Now after a full year putting it to use in the ADR studio as well as (mostly) on a boom pole I am still amazed each and every time I use it. Just last month I was doing an indie shoot using free crew and I only gave our boom operators 10 minutes of instruction before handling the boom for the shoot. This is obviously not enough time to learn but the mic saved me like you wouldn't believe. The on-camera backup mic picked up nothing but echo even for the close up shots where the subject was 2' in front of camera. We were shooting using a prosumer HD camera in a standard living room with hardwood floors. The Sennheiser on the boom (more than 5' away) had absolutely no echo and recorded perfectly clean feature quality dialogue on the separate channel. The sound mixers at Warner Bros use it. I use it. There is no better microphone. Period.

Expertise: Worked at Sony, Universal and now Warner Bros Studios in post production. I have been in charge of dailies coming in from production for all of my now 17 year career.

Problems Encountered: Phantom power required for this microphone

Previous Equivalent Item Owned: I only use the Sennheiser MKH-416

Items I Recommend: Boom Pole
