Sennheiser ME66 overview

  • 1Description

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 ME66 reviews

ME66/K6 - Super-Cardioid Short Shotgun Condenser Microphone Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed Audio Pickup I use this microphone for recording audio on independent films. The crispness of actor's voices is retained at the reasonable distances required to keep the mic out of the video frame. The sound is very clean with little or no perceptible generated hiss form the mic itself. It has tremendous high end and bottom end response, sometimes too much bottom end. The low cut filter is great for reducing air conditioner and other low end ambient noise, but that setting makes the voices sound too thin when compared to the shots used without the roll-off. I usually choose one or the other setting and use it for the entire film, depending upon set locations. Overall, a great value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic I use this mic mostly for outdoor recording. It is agreat way to improve your audio. Couldn't believe how much more sound I could pick up. The battery seems to go on and on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing mic! This mic is amazing and so sensitive. I'd say, if you have the money, spring for this guy. This set was a little misleading, I thought I was getting a windscreen with it but alas, none in the box :( Regardless LOVE this mic!
