Overview
  • 1Description

The Sennheiser ME66 short shotgun microphone is a popular choice among video, film and ENG / EFP professionals. The capsule features a highly directional, cardioid polar pattern yielding great attenuation at the sides of the microphone, maximizing pickup at the front. The result is a focused pickup in highly ambient environments. A wide 40-20,000Hz frequency response provides detailed, accurate signal reproduction. The ME66 capsule takes advantage of the K6 modular power supply. The K6 houses a standard AA alkaline battery and is also capable of accepting phantom power from outside sources. Its compact design allows mounting to video cameras. The ME66 is at home in event videography, ENG / EFP use, video depositions, corporate media applications and film.

  • Sennheiser ME66 - Short Shotgun Mic Capsule

    The Sennheiser ME66 capsule is a popular short shotgun microphone for use with the K6 or K6P power supplies. The modular design of K6-series microphones provide the freedom to adapt compatible capsules when necessary. The ME66 capsule is sold separately to accommodate those who may already own either of the K6 power supplies.

    The capsule features a highly directional, cardioid polar pattern yielding great attenuation at the sides of the microphone, maximizing pick up at the front. The result is a focused pick-up in highly ambient environments. A wide 40-20,000Hz frequency response provides detailed, accurate signal reproduction. Its short size allows camera mounting while remaining free of the frame.
