Sennheiser MKH 8070 overview

  • 1Description

The MKH 8070 from Sennheiser is a long shotgun microphone that is ideal for broadcast and sporting applications. With high directivity, the microphone captures true and natural sound at great distances. Reliable under the toughest climatic conditions, the microphone's symmetrical RF transducer design produces high sensitivity, low distortion and excellent transient response.

The long interference tube yields a pleasing lobar pickup pattern, suppressing off-axis sound without coloration to create extremely natural and detailed results. The microphone performs even under the toughest sonic and environmental conditions. It ships with an analog output module featuring an XLR connector, but with the appropriate accessory, the body can to interface directly into digital systems via the optional MZD 8000 digital module.

    Sennheiser MKH 8070 reviews

    MKH 8070 - Long Shotgun Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal I used this Mic on a Sony HVR-Z5 video camera approximately 25 feet from the source. I recorded a piano, male and female voices and a flute. The clarity of the sound is unparalleled. If you do not believe me go to FB page for Pierce Opera House and listen to some of the songs. I fully recommend this Mic. It is not cheap but it does the job.
