Sennheiser ME66/K6 - Super-Cardioid Short Shotgun Condenser Microphone Kit
Key Features
  • Universal Shock Mount XLR
  • Mini Transformer Cable
The Sennheiser ME66 short shotgun microphone is a popular choice among video, film and ENG / EFP professionals. The capsule features a highly directional, cardioid polar pattern yielding great attenuation at the sides of the microphone, maximizing pickup at the front. The result is a focused pickup in highly ambient environments. A wide 40-20,000Hz frequency response provides detailed, accurate signal reproduction. The ME66 capsule takes advantage of the K6 modular power supply. The K6 houses a standard AA alkaline battery and is also capable of accepting phantom power from outside sources. Its compact design allows mounting to video cameras. The ME66 is at home in event videography, ENG / EFP use, video depositions, corporate media applications and film.

Sennheiser ME 66 Supercardioid Shotgun Microphone Head

The Sennheiser ME 66 is a supercardioid shotgun condenser microphone designed to provide focused sound pickup for boom operators, sound engineers, and videographers in ENG, EFP, video and television production, broadcast, and interviews. Its supercardioid/lobar polar pattern delivers a tight, focused pickup area with effective rejection of sounds from the sides and rear of the mic. A wide 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response ensures accurate signal capture across the frequency spectrum, making it welcome for recording dialog, Foley, sound effects, and ambient noise.

With high sensitivity and maximum SPL ratings, it works well with a variety of preamps and can handle both hushed and loud sound sources. Its low self-noise yields an improved signal-to-noise ratio appropriate for typical digital recording systems.

The ME 66 easily attaches to a K6 or K6P powering module (required and available separately) for simple integration with standard microphone preamps. Its compact body allows camera and boompole mounting while remaining out of the shot.

Sennheiser K6 Microphone System Powering Module (Phantom/Battery)

The K6 Microphone System Powering Module by Sennheiser is the compatible base for many modular capsules. It features high output levels with low noise, a switchable bass roll-off, and transformerless balanced output.

The K6 can operate on a single AA battery (not included) or phantom power. Its on/off switch also has a battery test position, so you can be sure you have enough juice. The K6's anodized, matte-black finish will resist abrasions to maintain a professional appearance, even under rigorous usage.

K6 Microphone System Powering Module

  • High output, low noise operation
  • Switchable bass roll-off filter @ 100Hz
  • Transformerless balanced output
  • On/Off switch with battery test position
  • Battery or phantom powered
  • Anodized scratch-resistant finish

Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shock Mount for Camera Shoes and Boompoles

The Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount features a four-point suspension to accommodate shotgun and other cylindrical microphones measuring 0.74-0.98" (19-25mm) in diameter. The shockmount is easily angled with its rubberized adjustment knob. There is a built-in shoe for camera mounting, and a 3/8"-16 thread connection at the base mounts the shockmount to boompoles and universal hand-grips.

Kopul LMT100 - Low to High Impedance Matching Transformer (1.5')

The Kopul LMT100 cable simply enables a microphone or mic-level device to be input into a high-impedance 3.5mm mini input found on DSLRs, camcorders, and other devices. It is 1.5' long and has a 3-pin XLR female connector on one end and a standard 3.5mm mini plug on the other. It is designed for use with mono microphones.

Matches low-impedance XLR output to high-impedance 1/8" (3.5mm) audio input
Ideal for plugging professional XLR microphones into DSLRs, camcorders, and other devices with a 1/8˝ microphone input
For use with battery-powered and dynamic microphones
Designed for a mono source, but will split the signal to both channels of a stereo device
