Sennheiser MKE 440 overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser MKE 440 Compact Stereo Shotgun Microphone and Windbuster Kit from B&H includes a Sennheiser MKE 440 stereo, dual mini-shotgun microphone, and an Auray WSW-MKE-440 windbuster for the Sennheiser MKE 440 microphone. It can be used in video and film applications to capture focused stereo sound for cameras and recorders.

The microphone offers a stereo, supercardioid pickup pattern and has a frequency response of 50 Hz to 20 kHz. The mic includes a 3-level sensitivity switch and a high-pass filter to remove rumble. It is powered by two AAA batteries and can run for up to 100 hours.

Additionally, the windbuster is a dual-layer fur windscreen that is custom-tailored to fit the Sennheiser MKE 440 microphone. It is designed to reduce wind noise by up to 30 to 40 dB. The fur outer cover and acoustic cloth inner liner work together to capture audio with a minimal high-frequency loss, and without muffling the sound.

  • Sennheiser MKE 440 Compact Stereo Shotgun Microphone

    The MKE 440 from Sennheiser 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 microphones are internally shock-mounted to prevent handling noise, and the stainless steel micro-mesh offers protection against wind. Additionally, an optional hair cover is available for strong wind applications.

Sennheiser MKE 440 reviews

MKE 440 Compact Stereo Shotgun Microphone and Windbuster Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Lightweight Stereo Mic I bought this to use on one of my B cams, in this case a SONY PXW X70. I wanted something compact with a good stereo image and decent rejection to the rear. For me, the MKE 440 fits the bill. I shoot mainly outdoors, my subject being trains and locomotives, ambient sounds, and interviews. First of all, the mic has a very natural, clear sound. I put it on par with my more expensive Audio Technica shotgun and definitely better than the camera's on board mic. Of course, that should go without saying. The rear end rejection is decent for a mic this size and camera handling noise is minimal. Of course if you touch the camera's XLR mic handle you are going to hear it. However, for tripod or normal hand held use of the camera the mic will deliver the audio that you are wanting to shoot. For wind noise reduction I purchased the Windbuster Kit from B&H. It is made specifically for this mic and had a good snug fit. As advertised, it does do a decent job of minimizing wind noise. I was shooting in 15mph winds with the low cut filter enabled. It does not perform as well as my AT shotgun with a RYCOTE dead cat, but it isn't bad either considering it is half the price. Just keep in mind that with the Windbuster on, you will not be able to see the power/lowcut/sensitivity buttons. For me it is easy to forget to turn the mic off, but the saving grace is the long life with the two AA batteries. In short, this mic does the job I want it to without making the small X70 top heavy. Hopefully it will last for years to come.
