The MD 46 handheld cardioid ENG microphone includes features found in today's interview mics, but with studio quality sound, according to the company. The MD 46 has a traditional long handle, wind attenuation and off-axis rejection and is designed to possess an extended high-frequency response, warm lows, and a clean midrange. The company developed the new microphone in response to the needs of NBC and the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Omni microphones pick up everything equally, including background noise. The MD 46 cardioid interview mic focuses on the subject, increasing clarity. Designed to have low handling and wind noise, and to eliminate vocal popping, this microphone gives the ENG team an ideal interview tool.

Rugged all-metal body
Extremely low sensitivity to handling noise
Very insensitive to pop and wind noise
Uniform frequency response
Excellent sound quality
Integral microphone clamp thread
Double layer grille basket

    MD 46 - Dynamic ENG Microphone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mic! Quick sevice! I have not had it long enough to know how it will hold up. I use the MD 46 Microphone for on the video street interviews as well as in the studio for VO. Great dynamic mic. It has a nice warm sound. No power source needed so makes for great use in the field. I hook it up to my wireless system so the interviewer can walk around freely. It is heavy, but great construction. It is cordial, so it dose have a very specific sound pick up close to the mic head. Back ground noise is limited, but still there. It dose have some handling noise, but not to bad. Over all I am happy with the mic for the price and how I have used it so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best ENG mic there is I teach at a journalism school and this is downright the best ENG microphone in the industry. This thing is like a rock. We had a student drop one in water during a flood while filming her documentary in India. After returning, we let it dry out for about a week and the thing still works beautifully. Omni-directional microphones capture way too much ambient sound, especially in noisy situations. This has just enough cardioid to make it directional, but allow flexibility if the interviewee turns their head or the sound trails off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE choice for reporters! I am a radio news reporter in a major U.S. market. I have used many different microphones in the field. Hands down, the Sennheiser MD46 is the best. At this point, I wouldn't take anything else out. It sounds clearer than other mics, rejects surrounding noise better, accommodates a mic flag nicely, has a great balanced feel in the hand and is the perfect size and weight if I had to defend myself behind police lines. That hasn't happened yet but you never know when what will happen when you report live from crime scenes. Watch your local news at night, chances are the reporters in the field are using the wireless version. Almost all reporters use the Sennheiser. There is a reason for that. If you are going to interview in a noisy area and want pro sounding audio...use what the pros use. Go with the cardioid pick up pattern, NOT the omni directional. Last week, I interviewed patrons in a noisy pub, Led Zeppelin was blaring in the background. When I cut up the audio for the story, it was barely there. The audio came out fantastic. I just bought my own just in case the station's were all checked out so I'll never be without my MD 46.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice sound, reliable. But... Once the cable lock (little metal piece in the button edge of the XLR connection wears off a little bit, the cable (or transmitter piece) does not lock anymore. That is a big problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Great ENG Mic I use the mic in typical ENG fashion, on locations that are often noisy in the background. This mic, however, only picks up a low ambient background that add color to the recording. The handling noise that is common to many microphones is thankfully missing, even when persons handling the mic aren't careful about hand movements. The mic feels great in the hand, sounds great for many types of voices and has many useful applications.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this purchase I use this mic to gather postgame interviews following baseball games, mostly in the clubhouses and connected to a Marantz PMD620 recorder. Overall the audio quality comes out great for broadcast - there is a bit more handling noise than I prefer, but I suspect this will go away as I learn to handle it properly. I also like that it's a bit longer than standard mics, although there is a bit of a trade-off if you have to hold it out to gather audio at arm's reach. It seems to have good rejection of ambient noise while being able to collect quality audio when focused on the subject. But overall - a really nice mic that works great for a broadcast application.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sennheiser quality, worth the coin I'm a news reporter with a hatred of my own voice, this microphone made me enjoy hearing myself talk. Rich sound, well constructed, quality packaging and materials. The ONLY thing I would have liked to see was a microphone clip included, but

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ENG Mic! Very smooth and accurate sound, cuts the ambient noise almost down to nothing.
