Sennheiser MKE-2 overview

  • 1Description

The MKE 2 digital from Sennheiser is a professional solution for mobile recording that can be utilized to capture audio for several applications using iOS devices such as iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini, and much more. With its wide range of applications, whether for videos, recordings or interviews, the MKE 2 digital membrane is robust against all environmental influences.

The MKE 2 digital omnidirectional condenser microphone is connected via Lightning connector to modern iOS devices - allowing the jack socket to remain free for monitoring headphones as needed. An Apogee external converter does the analog-to-digital signal conversion using 24-bit/96 kHz sampling rate when connected to a iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This allows for a signal that surpasses CD quality.

The corresponding apps (MetaRecorder and Maestro) for recording and control are included in the package. In addition, the apps deliver metadata for further processing, thus making recording a simple matter. Essential features of MetaRecorder can also be controlled from the Apple Watch - start and stop recording, add a take to favorites, add markers or set your microphone input level. There are, of course, several other apps that can also directly access the microphone.

Finally, a mic clip, a metal windscreen, a foam windshield, and a carrying pouch are also included.

MKE 2 digital is suitable for anyone who wants a simple setup to record Podcasts, presentations, interviews or meetings directly to their iPhone
You can rely on iPhones as flexible tools for film production. When paired with DSLR video cameras, MKE 2 digital and an iOS device make capturing professional quality productions simple and efficient

    Sennheiser MKE-2 reviews

    MKE 2 digital Microphone is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Broadcast Quality Mic Failed by Maestro App The MKE 2 Digital is the same superb broadcast quality mic you're used to from Sennheiser, but unfortunately it can't be used to broadcast on iOS due to bugs in Apogee's required app. Although the MKE 2 interfaces with Core Audio, the Maestro app randomly zeros out its levels, so every time the mic is used in apps (i.e. Periscope), levels have to be reset, thus necessitating launching Maestro and ending the live broadcast. Since the MKE 2 and Clip Mic Digital cannot function without Maestro, Apogee must address this, yet they do not. Considering the high price of the MKE2 Digital and its reliance on the Maestro app to be used for anything other than MetaRecorder, fixing Maestro should be a top priority for Apogee. It's a shame that Sennheiser produced a device of the utmost quality only to be failed by Apogee's software. Based on App Store reviews, I would expect Apogee to have addressed these issues by now, yet there have been no updates to Maestro since April 2015 when initial support was added for the Sennheiser mics. Sennheiser MKE 2 Digital: 5 Stars Apogee Maestro App: 1 Star
