Beyerdynamic MC 836 Overview

  • 1Description

The Beyerdynamic MC836 is a short shotgun microphone, designed for ENG / EFP, general video, crucial recording and sound reinforcement applications. The condenser element features lobe-cardioid and pressure gradient / line transducer principle which results in detailed audio reproduction without residual, off-axis noise or ambiance.

The MC836's very wide, linear frequency response ensures accurate audio reproduction throughout the spectrum. A low frequency roll-off filter switch suppresses proximity effect, wind and ambiance noise at 90Hz. An internal sound insulation eliminates noise below 40Hz. The MC836 is powered with 11-52V phantom power and is ideal for boom pole mounted and camera mounted applications.

Lobe / Cardioid Polar Pattern
The lobe-cardioid pick up pattern results in a focused pick up area at the front pf the capsule, while minimizins off-axis noise and feedback.
Wide Linear Frequency Response
The wide, linear frequency response results in transparent, accurate signal reproduction of vocals, instruments and more.
Low-Cut Filter
The low-cut filter switch eliminates hum and low-frequency noise below 90Hz.
Internal Insulation
In addition to the Low-Cut filter switch, a capsule aligned insulation protects against noise below 40Hz.

    Beyerdynamic MC 836 Reviews

    MC836 Shotgun Microphone (Short) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended I've been using the 836 on a variety of professional level shoots (from narrative, interviews, to voiceover and commercial work) for the last year and it's a total gem. It's versatile, very flat and clear, and precisely what you would want when you need something with lots of range. Also lightweight and easy to learn its quirks (there aren't many.) Only con is it is somewhat sensitive to RF. On two locations it was picking up what appeared to be stray EM energy from I believe old light fixtures. It sounded like a very low SPL high-frequency squeal. I switched to my Senn 416 and did not pick up the noise signal.
