The black Sennheiser MKE 2 is a tough, subminiature omnidirectional lavalier microphone renowned for its dependable performance among industry professionals, including broadcast and field audio engineers, theater performers, presenters, and film/video crews. The mic’s dual-diaphragm design resists sweat and moisture, while the tiny size offers a discreet appearance that’s easy to conceal—even resisting contact and rustling noise when hidden in clothing and costumes.
With its wide 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range and ability to handle up to 130 dB SPL, the MKE 2 lav provides clear, intelligible reproduction of speech, dialog, and vocals. The microphone's omnidirectional polar pattern picks up sound from 360° around the capsule, helping to deliver consistent levels, even when the talent turns away from the mic capsule.
The MKE 2 is available with several connector options to accommodate wireless transmitters and other compatible equipment. This model features an XLR connection for use with a wide variety of professional audio gear including portable audio recorders, mixers, interfaces, camcorders, cameras, and more. The mic requires 12 to 48V of phantom power to operate.
A frequency cap is supplied, allowing you to boost the high-end frequency response if desired.
