    Comments about Sennheiser MKH-8050 Compact Supercardioid Condenser Microphone:

    I bought the MKH-8050 to use on interviews and especially for use on a show recording the sounds of new born puppies and kittens. Having used the MKH50 in the past this was a very easy transition. The only issue is dealing with the handling noise as Sennheiser has yet to release a shock mount made specifically for this mic. I managed to find a shock mount that works well for such a short mic and all is well.
    This mic is has a crisp sound and a wide pattern. It's perfect for what I need it for.
