Exceptional Noise Rejection

The capsule features a highly directional, cardioid polar pattern yielding great attenuation at the sides of the microphone, maximizing pick up at the front.

Wide Frequency Response

A wide 40-20,000Hz frequency response ensures detailed, accurate signal reproduction.

Compact Camera Mountable

The ME66's compact design allows mounting to video cameras and is at home in event videography, ENG / EFP use, video depositions, corporate media applications and film.

K6 Power Module

Sennheiser's K6 power supply provides power via AA battery. The K6 can except phantom power from external sources as well. The power supply screws on to the capsule, revealing the XLR connection.

question

Hi B&H. I was looking at the Sennheiser me66 mic, but saw that I had to buy it with the k6 module. I was just wondering: Now that the Frequency Response on the me66 is 40 Hz - 20 kHz, but the Frequency Response on the k6 module is 30 to 20,000 Hz, doesn't I loose 10 Hz? (link below)Regards Martin.
Asked by: Anonymous
I think you are looking at it the wrong way - the mic has a freq resp of 40 and up, the K6 module is from 30 and up (you therefore GAIN 10 Hz) - but you v. seldom operate at this level anyway - unless you have v specific needs.

question

What other hardware do I need to connect a Sennheiser K6 to Panasonic AG-HMC40?
Asked by: Wayne R.
In order to connect the ME66 with K6 power module you will need the proper cable. The Kopul LMT-100 will allow you to connect the K6 to the 3.5mm mic input jack on the camera. If you are using the optional AG-MYA30G XLR Microphone Adapter with your camera you will need a short XLR cable for connection. In addition the DUSM-1 shock mount will allow you to mount the microphone to the shoe on your camera.
