Sennheiser MKE600 overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser MKE 600 Shotgun Microphone and Auray Fur Windshield Kit from B&H is recommended for capturing audio in outdoor environments. It can be used with professional video cameras and camcorders in applications such as weddings, interviews, live events, and more.

The B&H kit features a Sennheiser MKE 600 shotgun microphone that runs either on battery or 48V phantom power, and an Auray WSS-2014 professional fur windshield that reduces wind noise up to 40 dB. Also included in the kit are a shockmount, a foam windscreen, and a carry pouch for transporting the microphone.

  • Sennheiser MKE 600 Shotgun Microphone

    The MKE 600 from Sennheiser is a shotgun microphone designed for use with a camcorder or video DSLR. Building on the company's extensive expertise in designing shotgun microphones, it is able to take on even the toughest video sound challenges, while still being compact and short relative to previous models. With its high level of directivity, the microphone focuses on the sounds in front of the camera, while attenuating unwanted sound coming from the sides and rear.

    An included foam windshield reduces the effect of wind noise, while a switchable low-cut filter adds additional wind and handling noise attenuation. The MKE 600 can be phantom powered or operated on an AA battery for about 150 hours. An integrated camera shoe and shock mount provides convenient on camera mounting. The rugged and all metal housing means the microphone will function perfectly in outdoor recording situations.

  • Auray WSS-2014 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones - (14cm)

    The Auray WSS Series Professional Windshields deliver superior 360° wind protection with acoustic transparency. They are engineered for dramatic reduction of unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with very little high frequency loss, for exceptionally accurate recordings.

    This WSS-2014 Professional Windshield has an inside depth of 14cm and is designed for use with many shotgun microphones. It features a specially manufactured open-cell foam matrix surrounded by a layer of 25mm-thick simulated rabbit fur. This diffusion technology lowers wind velocity in a controlled air space around the microphone, thereby reducing wind noise without muffling the sound. It also features an airtight tapered rubber base that seals out wind from the rear of the microphone, greatly improving isolation and rear wind protection.

    When used on a shotgun microphone, this slip-on windshield is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to strong breeze conditions (4-25 mph) and users can generally expect a 24dB to 40dB reduction in wind noise with negligible dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the negligible high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the dramatic wind noise reduction.

    In addition to superior 360° wind protection, the WSS-2014 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Audio-Technica, Neumann, Røde, Sanken, Sennheiser and others.

    The WSS-2014 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones is an advanced solution for outstanding wind protection with acoustic transparency.

Sennheiser MKE600 reviews

MKE 600 Shotgun Microphone and Auray Fur Windshield Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ENG/EFP mic Love it. It's a great replacement for my old Sennheiser mics that saw years of great service. It took a bit of creative engineering for it to sit in the mic holder of my Sony camera, but not all that surprising for Sony. It sounds great and the included windscreen provided great protection with little audio coloration, even during a rather windy outdoor shoot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it. I capture sound this weekend with a fair bit of wind and the sound came out great. Clear, the wind was acceptable. I could hear clear voices from a decent distance away.
Date published: 2016-03-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought several of these at my last company. Came back for more! Great mics. Nice pkg. with the fur kit.
Date published: 2016-05-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone I will not get into the technical aspects of this mic because I am not qualified to, but this has been a great microphone for us for some time now. We use it as a shotgun on our cameras as well as attached to a fishpole. The Auray Fur Windshield is a must and does a great job in high wind situations. I recently was on a 14,000 foot peak and it was gusting. We got great audio. I recommend this mic.
Date published: 2018-08-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality/price, not quite pro. Great mic for the money, takes pretty clean audio with low noise. Compared back to back with higher end mics, there is a notable difference, but it can definitely be used with confidence to get good sound.
Date published: 2017-02-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mic for the price I think this mix was a great choice for someone just getting into locationsound, I might eventually upgrade, but this thing sounds GOOD!
Date published: 2017-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product Just purchased to sue with our boom pole for an overseas documentary project. Compact, rugged and great sound.
