Sennheiser MK 8 overview

  • 1Description

Designed to bring multiple polar pattern flexibility to home and project studios, the MK 8 Multiple-Pattern Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone from Sennheiser features dual 24K gold plated 1" diaphragms, allowing for a selection between omnidirectional, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid, and figure-8 polar patterns. A 3-position pad switch lets you select between 0, 10, and 20 dB of attenuation allowing the MK 8 to be used on a variety of sources. The controls on the mic are rounded out by a selectable low-cut filter at 60 and 100 Hz.

To reduce handling noise and internal vibration, the MK 8's capsule is internally shock mounted within its metal housing. A microphone clamp and storage pouch are included.
