Sennheiser ME 66 overview

  • 1Description

Looking for an on-camera shotgun mic kit that includes what you need to get quality audio to your recording source? Check out the Sennheiser ME66 Short Shotgun Microphone On-Camera Kit from B&H. It consists of a Sennheiser ME66 short shotgun microphone capsule, a K6 power module for the ME66 capsule, a hot shoe adapter to connect the ME66 to your DSLR, a windscreen, and a 1.5-foot long XLR to angled XLR cable.

The ME66 boasts a supercardioid polar pattern, allowing for off-axis rejection and focused recordings in ambient environments. It is powered by the K6 module, which provides the ME66 its required phantom power via a single AA battery (not included), allowing for portability. The included windshield helps reduce wind noise, while the 1.5-foot XLR cable can be used to connect the ME66 to your recorder.

  • Sennheiser ME 66 Supercardioid Shotgun Microphone Head

    The Sennheiser ME 66 is a supercardioid shotgun condenser microphone designed to provide focused sound pickup for boom operators, sound engineers, and videographers in ENG, EFP, video and television production, broadcast, and interviews. Its supercardioid/lobar polar pattern delivers a tight, focused pickup area with effective rejection of sounds from the sides and rear of the mic. A wide 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response ensures accurate signal capture across the frequency spectrum, making it welcome for recording dialog, Foley, sound effects, and ambient noise.

    With high sensitivity and maximum SPL ratings, it works well with a variety of preamps and can handle both hushed and loud sound sources. Its low self-noise yields an improved signal-to-noise ratio appropriate for typical digital recording systems.

    The ME 66 easily attaches to a K6 or K6P powering module (required and available separately) for simple integration with standard microphone preamps. Its compact body allows camera and boompole mounting while remaining out of the shot.

    Effective Noise Rejection
    Highly directional supercardioid/lobar polar pattern yields enhanced attenuation at the sides of the microphone and maximum pickup at the front
    Wide Frequency Response
    40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response for detailed, accurate signal reproduction
    High Maximum SPL
    High 125 dB maximum SPL provides distortion-free recording of loud sources
    Compact Design
    Compact enclosure enables lightweight use on video cameras and boompoles
    Powering Options
    Easily attaches to K6 or K6P powering modules (available separately) for stable power
    Protective Finish
    Matte black, anodized, scratch-resistant finish

  • Rycote InVision Video Hot Shoe Microphone Suspension - Lyre Shockmount

    The InVision Video Hot Shoe Microphone Suspension from Rycote slides into the hot shoe mount of most commercial camcorders to hold microphones with diameters from 19-25mm, while protecting against camera motor noise and vibrations. It is designed to enable camcorder users and videographers to capture the best possible sound for their productions using external camera-mounted microphones.

    The InVision Video uses the patented Lyre Suspension webs with a molded grip design to prevent your mic from slipping or twisting. For ease in finding the right mounting position, the InVision Video rotates freely 360° on a slotted 4" (100mm) mounting bar. The cradle can slide freely on this slotted bar to keep your mic out of the shot.

    19 to 25mm Mounting Cradle
    The cradle included with this system accommodates microphone diameters measuring between 19 to 25mm. The interior is treated with a soft-grip surface for a perfect, non-slip fitting
  • Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable - 1.5' (0.45 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable (1.5') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.
    Twin-conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
    24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.
    Caged type contact and improved ground contact.

  • Rycote 18cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics (Standard Hole)

    The standard hole Rycote 18cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics features an aerodynamic shape and surface structure made from the company's 3D-Tex material, which allows for attenuation of wind noise with acoustic transparency. It is ideal for a variety of sound recording applications including video, ENG and more.

    The 18cm Super-Softie has no rigid internal structure, thus it causes virtually no polar pattern distortion. It's robust design has been engineered for use in challenging environments, and if it becomes rain-soaked, it can be squeezed out and shaken dry quickly. Also, if it becomes coated with dust it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance.

    Compatibility For mics 0.7 - 0.9" (19 - 22 mm) in diameter
    For mics slots no further than 7.1" (18 cm) from the front of the mic
    Additional Information Finding the correct slip-on windshield will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone. Slip-on windshields are designed for cylindrical shotgun mics, ranging from 19-25 mm in diameter. 

     

    For any windshield to work effectively it must cover all the ports on the microphone. Therefore a 18 cm slip-on windshield would be suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 18 cm from the front of the mic. 

     

    The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight in order to achieve a good seal. Rycote slip-on windshields come in three diameter fittings, Universal (19-25 mm), Standard (19-22 mm) or Large (24-25 mm).
