    Sennheiser MKH-8020ST reviews

    MKH-8020 Compact Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone (Stereo Set) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for nasty outdoor conditions. It will work flawlessly in any environmental conditions. You'll usually need a low cut filter, it's very sensitive at low frequencies. If you're capturing ambiences in windy conditions this combined with a small Cyclone is probably your best choice. The only negative is that you'll need to learn how to tame the low end on this microphone.
