Sennheiser MKE Overview

The black MKE Essential Omnidirectional Microphone with 3.5mm Connector from Sennheiser is a professional lavalier microphone built with a KE4 condenser capsule. It can be used to capture speech and vocals for live stage, theater, and rehearsal applications.

The MKE Essential Omni microphone is derived from the MKE 2, a Broadway standard microphone, with several improvements. Reduced to the essentials, the microphone delivers a warm and distortion-free signal, even at high sound pressure levels. A foam windscreen and a mic clamp are also included.

Meets High Expectations

The MKE Essential small condenser microphone brings warmth and brilliance to every stage voice. Even at high input volumes, the signal remains distortion-free. The updated KE 4 capsule inherits its high standards from the MKE 2, but is suitable for smaller productions.

Made for Sweat and Tears

Highly sensitive on the one hand, stage-safe on the other—the capsule of the MKE Essential Omni is protected against all forms of moisture (typically sweat) by a patented, ultra-light tandem membrane. This not only protects the signal, but also your investment in high-quality miking. All cable connections are also designed for tensile strength.

How does this compare to the ME 2-II microphone ...

How does this compare to the ME 2-II microphone (which came with my G4 wireless system)? The original mic has gone bad so I need to replace it and am trying to determine which mic is best for documentary filmmaking between this one, ME2 and MKE2 (which is really outside of my budget currently).
Asked by: Kristin
This mic is designed for use on the stage and has some features particular to that aplication, like more flexable cords, higher SPL levels and sweat restance. For shooting documentary footage the ME-2 would be a better choice.

can this be adapted to connect to my mixer? Is it compatible with phantom power?
Asked by: James
The safety guide that comes with this microphone says "Connect the microphone only to microphone inputs and supply units that provide 48V phantom powering in accordance with IEC 61938." Is this correct or, as as stated by B & H staff, does this use plug-in power?

Is it good for instruments, like MKE 2? does it work with rode wireless go?
Asked by: Yasin
The sound quality of this is very similar to the MKE2, but it's omnidirectional pickup may not be best for all instrument micing situations. This would be compatible with the Rode Wireless Go, as it uses the same 3.5mm wiring as most Sennheiser transmitters.
