Containing all the elements necessary for capturing audio in outdoor environments, the Sennheiser MKH 416-P48 Short Shotgun Microphone and Rycote Super-Shield Kit from B&H features the MKH 416 shotgun microphone and MZW 415 windshield, along with an MZQ 100 microphone clamp. Also included in the kit are a super-shield suspension chassis with front and rear pod (medium size) windshield, a windjammer, a pistol grip, one 18" XLR cable, and a fur maintenance brush.

This B&H kit is a cost-effective solution for recording audio in the field, offering excellent wind protection with minimal high-frequency loss, and providing almost perfect transparency wherever the next broadcast, sports, or news event takes you.

  • Sennheiser MKH-416 - Short Shotgun Interference Tube Microphone

    Designed for recording audio in film, radio, and television the MKH 416 from Sennheiser is a short shotgun interference microphone optimized for outdoor applications. It offers excellent directional control in a compact design with high consonant articulation and rejection of feedback. The unit is highly immune to humidity because of its RF condenser design. It operates as a hypercardioid at low and medium frequencies with a lobar pattern above 2 kHz.

    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 low noise levels and high immunity 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 2 kHz 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

  • Rycote Super-Shield Kit for Shotgun Mics (Medium)

    The medium Super-Shield Kit for Shotgun Mics from Rycote is a complete windshield and shock mounting system for shotgun microphones 20-25cm in length. The kit contains the Super-Shield Suspension which provides your microphone isolation from shocks and vibrations, the Super-Shield Windshield which provides wind-noise reduction with minimal high-frequency loss, and the Windjammer, a high-quality synthetic fur cover which provides protection against extreme wind noise.

    The Super-Shield Suspension features patented Lyre technology, which provides your microphone isolation from shocks and vibrations without the use of rubbers or elastic. The chassis fits microphones 19mm (3/4") to 25mm (1") in diameter, using two snap-in, pinch-release Lyre suspensions that can be used in any of six positions to achieve the optimal balance and fit. The suspension comes with an 18" (450mm) high flexibility microphone cable.

    Made up of two lightweight, durable baskets made from flexible grey plastic netting with a screening material attached, the Super-Shield Windshield connects to the Super-Shield Suspension. The windshield completely surrounds and creates a still volume of air around the microphone, which is designed to provide wind-noise reduction, with minimal high-frequency loss.

    The Super-Shield Windjammer is a synthetic fur cover which provides another layer of protection to be used to combat extreme wind noise. Like the Super-Shield Windshield, it is designed to protect from wind without substantial high-frequency loss.
