  • Sennheiser MKH-416 Short Shotgun Interference Tube Microphone

    Designed for recording audio in film, radio, and television the MKH 416 from Sennheiser is a short shotgun interference microphone optimized for outdoor applications. It offers excellent directional control in a compact design with high consonant articulation and rejection of feedback. The unit is highly immune to humidity because of its RF condenser design. It operates as a hypercardioid at low and medium frequencies with a lobar pattern above 2 kHz.

    Pressure gradient receiver with short interference tube
    Employs RF-technology to control residual microphone noise. Optimizing the transducer's acoustic impedance results in a further improvement in low noise performance
    The RF-design yields low noise levels and high immunity to humidity and moisture
    The comparatively low RF-voltage across the elements of the transducer also eliminates arcing and DC-bias creeping currents
    Hypercardioid at low and medium frequency, above 2 kHz approaches lobar pattern
    Very low inherent self-noise
    High sensitivity
    Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
    Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions
    Matt black all-metal body
    Increased directivity

  • Canare Star Quad (L-4E6S) Microphone Cable 25' (7.62 m)

    The Canare Star Quad (L-4E6S) Microphone Cable 25' (7.62 m) is the premier Star Quad cable for all handheld microphone applications. This cable uses trusted Canare technology to give you the optimum in sound quality. Flexible, satin smooth to the touch and extra strong, this standard diameter, 21 AWG cable fits perfectly in all XLR-type audio connectors. Forty separate strands in each conductor eliminate breakage due to flexing. A cross-section of the cable shows four conductors arranged as two pairs in an "X" configuration. The result is a microphone cable that resists induced noise in the most severe environments.

    Conductors
    Canare microphone cables utilize high conductivity, annealed copper wires, stranded to form flexible conductors and shields

Sennheiser MKH-416 reviews

Ultimate Shotgun Microphone Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS THE BEST MICROPHONE FOR ON SET RECORDING - PERIOD Sennheiser MKH-416 (P48) Super-Cardioid Short Shotgun MicLet me give a little back-story on this one. I have been working at Warner Bros Studios as a supervisor in post production for almost 10 years now. I have been in charge of overseeing dailies coming into the studio. I have worked with all the best sound mixers in the industry. Not only have I had equipment and spec meetings with every sound mixer coming into the studio, but I have also had the opportunity to talk to the dub stage mixers during the mix of our features. Back in 2006 I was looking for a great microphone to do ADR recording for a professional trailer. One of the older experienced mixers said there is only one mic that has the most dynamic yet clean recording for dialogue - both on set and in the ADR studio. The Sennheiser-MKH 416. He gave it such a stellar review I didn't even think twice about considering a different microphone.Now after a full year putting it to use in the ADR studio as well as (mostly) on a boom pole I am still amazed each and every time I use it. Just last month I was doing an indie shoot using free crew and I only gave our boom operators 10 minutes of instruction before handling the boom for the shoot. This is obviously not enough time to learn but the mic saved me like you wouldn't believe. The on-camera backup mic picked up nothing but echo even for the close up shots where the subject was 2' in front of camera. We were shooting using a prosumer HD camera in a standard living room with hardwood floors. The Sennheiser on the boom (more than 5' away) had absolutely no echo and recorded perfectly clean feature quality dialogue on the separate channel. The sound mixers at Warner Bros use it. I use it. There is no better microphone. Period. Expertise: Worked at Sony, Universal and now Warner Bros Studios in post production. I have been in charge of dailies coming in from production for all of my now 17 year career. Problems Encountered: Phantom power required for this microphone Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Sennheiser MKH-416 Items I Recommend: Boom Operator required. If you purchase the mic only, then buy a boom pole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mic kit but the internal cable was already tangled. The kit is great so far, but when I first tried to use it, the mic would not work. I opened the boom pole to find that the cable was disconnected and tangled to the top of the pole. So spent about a half hour untangling it and pulling it towards the bottom of the pole so I could connect the cable to the base. Now it works great. I would have returned the item but needed to use it and didn't want to wait another week for a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A life saver I got so many compliments using this kit on set. It works and everything made my sound amazing. This is the industry standard so you can't go wrong.
