Key Features
  • Dialog Boompole Microphone
  • Pressure Gradient Condenser
  • For Spot Capture
  • For Recording / Sound Reinforcement
The MKH 50 P48 Microphone from Sennheiser is a high quality, professional condenser microphone specifically designed for spot capturing in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The MKH 50 offers exceptional attenuation at the lateral sections of the capsule, for a focused pick up without off-axis noise. Its wide frequency response and high sensitivity result in pristine audio fidelity, no matter the source. It also has a low-frequency roll-off switch to minimize rumble/noise, and a pre-attenuation switch in case you'll mount the microphone near to high transients. The MKH 50 requires +48V phantom power, and is more than suitable for capturing vocals or instruments.
