More Info

The MKH 416 transformerless, 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 boom, fishpole, and camera mounting.

Its excellent directivity and compact design, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection make the MKH 416 a superb all-around microphone for film, radio and television, especially for outside broadcast applications.

Interference Tube Principle
Pressure gradient receiver with short interference tube
Employs RF-technology to control residual microphone noise. Optimizing the transducer's acoustic impedance results in a further improvement in low noise performance.
The RF-design yields exceptionally low noise levels and is virtually immune to humidity and moisture.
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
Very low inherent self-noise
High sensitivity
Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions
Matt black all-metal body
Increased directivity
Optimum S/N ratio
Lower gain on input channels required
Lowest noise and greatest signal stability
Highly immune to humidity in all conditions. Extremely stable.
