The MKH 8040 Compact Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Sennheiser is a stereo set of professional low-profile condenser microphones for capturing vocals, instruments, and ambiance in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The modular design consists of the MKHC 8040 cardioid capsule and the MZX 8000 XLR module output stage.
The cardioid capsule minimizes feedback and off-axis audio. The symmetrical transducer with two back-plates yields extremely low distortion. The wide frequency response provides exceptional detail and transparency. With its pristine audio quality and compact design, the MKH 8040 is great for many applications.
