Ideal for boompole-mounted operation in film/TV production, broadcast, and sound design applications, this B&H Kit combines the Sennheiser MKE 600 battery-/phantom-powered shotgun microphone with a Rycote Super-Blimp NTG windshield—complete with a short RF-shielded XLR and a windjammer—to create a professional-quality mic setup with effective protection from shock, vibration, and extreme wind noise.
Sennheiser MKE 600 Shotgun Microphone
Upgrade the audio quality in your video productions by switching from the built-in mic on your camera to the Sennheiser MKE 600 battery- or phantom-powered shotgun microphone. Its focused directional characteristics and resistance to structure-borne noise offer sonic results well suited to a variety of production scenarios from independent films and web series to nature shows and documentaries.
The MKE 600's high sensitivity and low-noise circuitry unlock improved sound quality without extreme gain on noisy camera preamps. With a natural roll-off at 40 Hz and a selectable low-cut filter at 100 Hz, the MKE 600 can deliver clear intelligibility while attenuating low-frequency noise such as rumble. Plus, its frequency response incorporates a gentle rise in treble to enhance speech clarity.
The lightweight and durable metal housing ensures reliable toughness without weighing down your rig. The included shoe shockmount accommodates mounting the MKE 600 to a camera or tripod. Connect the mic's XLR output to an XLR-equipped mic preamp or use the supplied adapter cable to plug it into the 3.5mm mic input on a camera.
Battery or Phantom Powered
When using devices that don't offer phantom power, the MKE 600 may be powered for up to 150 hours by a single AA battery (included). Approximately 8 hours of operating time remain once the low-battery indicator lights up red. Use the on/off switch to prevent unnecessary battery drain.
Ideal for Camera, Tripod, or Boompole Mounting
XLR to 3.5mm TRS Adapter Cable for Cameras
Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise
For maximum reduction of handling noise and wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider a complete windjammer, windshield, and shockmount suspension system such as the Rycote Super-Blimp NTG or the large Rycote Super-Shield Kit (both available separately).
Rycote Super-Blimp Kit for Rode NTG & Shotgun Mics (11" Length, 0.7-0.9" Diameter)
The Super-Blimp Kit from Rycote is a complete windshield and shockmount system for the Rode NTG series and similar shotgun microphones. The kit provides patented Lyre Technology and a broadcast industry basket to protect against shocks, vibrations, and wind noise—all with acoustic transparency. A Windjammer, designed to slip over the basket, protects against extreme wind noise.
A Rycote 90° Shortie XLR connector is situated inside the basket, complete with an integral RF shield to protect against the kind of dirty audio attributed to radio interference. Furthermore, a boom adapter is included with the unit. Releasing the microphone from the basket is easy, thanks to its quick release pods.
