Sennheiser MKE 440 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit combines the Sennheiser MKE 440 Compact Stereo Shotgun Microphone with a fur windshield to create an ideal location recording set up well suited for outdoor applications. The MKE 440 is a compact stereo shotgun microphone that predominately captures focused stereo sound from within the direction of filming and rejects the majority of off-axis noise from outside the camera focus. The microphone utilizes two mini-shotgun elements that are mounted in a V-shape arrangement, which outperforms mini AB, MS, or XY setups.

The microphone offers a stereo, super-cardioid pickup pattern and features a frequency response of 50 Hz to 20 kHz, as well as a maximum sound pressure level of 132 dB. The mic includes a 3-level sensitivity switch and a high-pass filter to remove rumble. The MKE 400 is powered by two AAA batteries and offers an operating time of 100 hours. The tailor fit fur windshield features simulated fur outside and helps reduce wind noise.

Sennheiser MKE 440 reviews

MKE 440 Stereo Shotgun Microphone Kit with Fur Windshield is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A well made microphone This Sennheiser MKE 440 microphone is a well made unit. Its light enough for DSLR work and is strong enought to take a beating as with all Senheiser units. I was attracted to the dual shotgun design with stereo output. In use it hasn't disappointed and the furry cat did the job when I used it on a recent golf course shoot.I couldn't wait for B&H to get the first shipment and recieved mine very promply from B&H. It has a metal shoe mount and attaches firmly and with confidence ! It also has a nice low profile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Microphone for run & gun videos I wanted a microphone for run & gun videos using my Canon 7Dii DSLR. After some research, I selected Sennheiser MKE 440, but the pro audio guy at B&H thought Rode VideoMic Pro would be better suited for my use. There were no 3rd party comparisons of these two mics, so I bought both. The B&H rep said that I could return the one I did not prefer. I conducted a very subjective comparison test. With assistance of 3 friends, I took 12 short videos with audio sound tracks. One person in front of camera at distances of 20, 40, 70 & 100 ft. Other 2 were on right & left of camera at distances of 5, 10, 15, & 20 ft. Each person was reciting a memorized poem for 15 seconds. One set of 5 recordings was done using Sennheiser MKE 440 mic One set of 5 recordings was done using Rode mic One set of 5 recordings was done using on-board Canon camera mic The results were mixed. At some distances the MKE was better. At other distances, the Rode was better. In some cases, the 4 people had mixed results or no difference noted. Overall, the audio quality of the Rode was slightly, but not significantly, better. Both Rode & Sennheiser mics were significantly better than on-camera mic. However, I chose the Sennheiser MKE 440 to purchase, because of the following: 1) MKE is significantly smaller, although slightly heavier (180 gms) 2) MKE fits much easier into my camera bag 3) MKE Battery access & replacement is MUCH easier. I thought the plastic tabs on the Rode battery cover would break before I could return the unit 4) MKE unit feels much more stable & secure when mounted on camera 5) MKE Dead Cat windscreen is much easier to attach & remove 6) MKE microphone cord is more out of the way when plugged into camera 7) MKE battery life is listed at 100 hours vs. 70 hours for Rode 8) MKE power-on LED changes from Green to Red when battery life < 4 hours 9) MKE costs $130 more, but not significant considering the amount of money already spent on Canon camera body & lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound! I picked this mic up to record interviews and my first project was a couple sitting on a couch. It couldn't been any easier as this mic picked up both voices with extreme clarity and richness of sound. I love how light and compacted this solution is, much better than trying to rig up to lav miss with mixer and extra cables.
