Sennheiser ME 4 overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser ME 4 is a cardioid lavalier condenser microphone designed for use with select Sennheiser bodypack transmitters in interviews, conferencing, television, and live stage applications. Optimized for speech intelligibility, it delivers a high maximum SPL and a 50 Hz to 18 kHz frequency response. Its cardioid polar pattern minimizes pickup of off-axis sound and enhances feedback rejection. The attached 5.2' cable is terminated with a 3.5mm TRS output connector for compatibility with ew G3, ew G4, SpeechLine Digital Wireless, and XS Wireless transmitters. The ME 4 is supplied with a clip for easy attachment to clothing.

    Sennheiser ME 4 reviews

    ME 4 Cardioid Lavalier Condenser Microphone for ew Series Transmitters is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from garbage I use Sennheiser G3s all the time with the ME-2 which come standard with those kits. I needed to rent a couple more Sennheiser G3s for a job and incorrectly assumed that they would come with ME-2s...INSTEAD it came with ME-4s. What a joke, I cant believe Sennheiser sells these as a pro mic. First of all, the mic is WAY to large to use as a professional lapel mic. Second the freq response is all over the map, the cable noise is completely unacceptable, and the plastic clip is a freaking joke. Im stunned Sennheiser sells these...completely useless in a professional environment. Dont waste your money on these. Buy the ME-2s.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mic, Bad clip Deserved a 5 star except the Sennheiser engineers should be fired for mating it with this mic clip! Buy the mic, throw the clip away and get a MZQ222 clip. The mic has very good background noise rejection as well as sound quality & sensitivity. The mic IS a little large in diameter and the foam windscreen is HUGE but fits well and won't fall off. If you really need the windscreen try to find a smaller, thinner one. MORE ON THE CLIP: Worst mic clip ever. The plastic clip that holds the mic wire will break the first time you push the wire into it so be careful. With the center pivot spring, half the clip will stick out to the side where it catches on everything and is very noisy & floppy! Can't believe Sennheiser would do this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utterly horrendous microphone Where do I start - I literally have nothing good to say about this microphone. I'm astonished a reputable company like Sennheiser can sell something this low a standard, for the same price as an ME2. Here's a rough breakdown as to why this is a terrible product:The size: This mic is unacceptably large for professional use. In normal situations you need to hide lapel mics away so as not to be seen (especially for filming) - good luck doing that with this mic. I can only assume they call it the me-4 because it's 4 times larger than it needs to be. The quality: Now I would probably be able to forgive the size if the quality were superior to the ME2, but that just isn't the case. It's terrible. The build quality is cheap (cheapy plastic shell) and the pickup pattern and tonal range are a disaster. To add insult to injury the clip that it comes with is also far too large, made of cheap plastic, and leaves you with an uncertain feeling of whether or not it will last the whole event. The price: Genuinely, I have bought better quality $ lapel mics from @ than this. I'm really not sure how Sennheiser can justify the price here, which is equivalent to an ME2 (a far superior microphone).Overall, it's a disgrace this product ever made it to market, and that Sennheiser are now shipping these as standard with their latest transmitter/receiver packs. Very disappointing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mic, needs better clip This is the exact replacement mic for the Sennheiser EW series lapel mics. It is cardioid, and has excellent pickup. My only complaint is that the clip is not that great (it is the same clip that comes with the kit when you by it).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible The very worse microphone I have ever used in my life. As a professional sound engineer I have come across countless types of microphones of all shapes and sizes, and the ME4 is simply an unusable microphone. It has an awful frequency response, so it sounds awful no matter what you do with it, and at 40mV/Pa it's waaaay too sensitive for its type. Avoid using it with a PA system at all costs because all you will get is tons of loud feedback. Another problem with this microphone is that it's cardioid, as opposed to omni-directional which is the norm for lavalier microphones. This means that you won't get a good reception of the source if the microphone is not well aimed at it. If you really have to, use this microphone in a controlled environment without any nearby speakers, like a studio. Otherwise stay away from this and save your money for a better quality microphone.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very good I've used this mic with Sennheiser's SK-100 bodypack and EK-100 receiver. The audio clarity is good however it as noted in another review, it is very heavy on the mid-range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Clarity Use this product for Sunday sermons, it improves the clarity and tonal delivery of the speaker.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Better Think Before You Buy Sennheiser is a top shelf product in general, however, the thing with these mics is that they are absurdly sensitive; and with wind noise, regardless of windscreens or not, you just can't use them. Most of our stuff is filmed on location outside, and these things were pretty much useless. If you're going to be inside, they probably work great. If you plan on filming outside at all, go with the other Sennheiser with a smaller head; they are super!
