    Sennheiser MKH 8050 reviews

    MKH 8050 Compact Supercardioid Condenser Microphone is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very clean Mic I bought the MKH-8050 to use on interviews and especially for use on a show recording the sounds of new born puppies and kittens. Having used the MKH50 in the past this was a very easy transition. The only issue is dealing with the handling noise as Sennheiser has yet to release a shock mount made specifically for this mic. I managed to find a shock mount that works well for such a short mic and all is well. This mic is has a crisp sound and a wide pattern. It's perfect for what I need it for.
