Sennheiser MKE2 overview

  • 1Description

The MKE2 Elements Microphone for GoPro HERO4 Action Cameras from Sennheiser is the result of the GoPro and Sennheiser collaboration to create a high-quality microphone, and an innovative wind protector for capturing audio with the HERO4 camera. It can be used to deliver a high-quality audio signal to the camera for videographers even in extreme conditions such as in wind, water, snow, dust, and mud.

The omnidirectional microphone has a water protection rating of IPX7, which is submersible to a few feet, and a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. A professional Sennheiser capsule inside the windshield delivers audio to the GoPro HERO4 connector. The microphone is attached to a back door which replaces the original HERO4 back door of the protective housing. It is built with the GoPro connection for the HERO4. Additionally, the Sennheiser MKE2 element has been approved by GoPro and received the "Works with GoPro" approval.

    Sennheiser MKE2 reviews

    MKE2 Elements Microphone for GoPro HERO4 Action Cameras is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GoPro Vlogger Opinion on the Sennheiser MKE2 Elements Mic I purchased this microphone for 2 reasons, 1 to eliminate the bad audio onboard the GoPro and 2 to eliminate using my Removu. Removu A1+M1 is a great mic, but you had to charge it and turn on multiple parts. Thus the need for this. I did a comprehensive first review on my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsWQNvGvRFU which elaborates on my thoughts surrounding this microphone. Overall I like it... The Cons is the thin wiring and it removes the visibility with the black backdoor, but outside of that... I truly like this microphone... $199.99 is a bit steep, but with B&H the shipping is free and no tax, so that at least eases the blow... I would give it 4.5 stars if possible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Wish I had it years ago! I used this straight out of the box and it literally turns my Go-Pro 4 into run and gun camera - with great sound. It's essentially like having a top mic on your Go-Pro... and with Sennheiser quality. Wish I could have bought this a couple of years ago - it's going to get lots of use... and waterproof too. Awesome.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent but has nad mic hiss Excellent on all accounts of quality and ease of use, but I was really disappointed to discover mic hiss in a quiet room. I'm a professional, use a lot of Sennheiser product and something's off in the gain when used with the Hero 4 Black. I tried it with 3 of them and they all hiss in the quiet.
