Overview
  • 1Description

The Sennheiser MKE-600 Shotgun Mic with Boompole, Bag & Shockmount HDSLR Kit from B&H provides everything you'll need to capture quality audio on your HDSLR camera.

The Sennheiser MKE-600 takes on video-sound challenges with its high level of directivity, attenuating off-axis sound. The switchable low-cut filter adds additional wind and handling noise attenuation. The MKE 600 can be phantom powered or operated on an AA battery for about 150 hours. The rugged and all-metal housing means the microphone will function perfectly in outdoor recording situations.

The K-Tek KE-110CC Aluminum Telescoping Boompole provides a lightweight solution for ENG, EFP and other field recording applications. It's tough enough to endure the rigors of road use while remaining travel worthy. This pole features an internally coiled cable and XLR connection at the base of the pole. The captive-collet coupling system locks each section in place for even further reliability.

The shockmount features a four-point suspension. It is easily angled with its rubberized adjustment knob. There is a built-in shoe for camera mounting and a 3/8"-16 thread connection at the base.

Additionally, this kit includes a Rycote windscreen, a Kopul 3-pin XLRF to 3.5mm cable, and short and long XLR cables.

  • Sennheiser MKE 600 - Shotgun Microphone

    The MKE 600 from Sennheiser is a shotgun microphone designed for use with a camcorder or video DSLR. Building on the company's extensive expertise in designing shotgun microphones, it is able to take on even the toughest video sound challenges, while still being compact and short relative to previous models. With its high level of directivity, the microphone focuses on the sounds in front of the camera, while attenuating unwanted sound coming from the sides and rear.

    An included foam windshield reduces the effect of wind noise, while a switchable low-cut filter adds additional wind and handling noise attenuation. The MKE 600 can be phantom powered or operated on an AA battery for about 150 hours. An integrated camera shoe and shock mount provides convenient on camera mounting. The rugged and all metal housing means the microphone will function perfectly in outdoor recording situations.

  • Auray WSS-2014 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones - (14cm)

    The Auray WSS Series Professional Windshields deliver superior 360° wind protection with acoustic transparency. They are engineered for dramatic reduction of unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with very little high frequency loss, for exceptionally accurate recordings.

    This WSS-2014 Professional Windshield has an inside depth of 14cm and is designed for use with many shotgun microphones. It features a specially manufactured open-cell foam matrix surrounded by a layer of 25mm-thick simulated rabbit fur. This diffusion technology lowers wind velocity in a controlled air space around the microphone, thereby reducing wind noise without muffling the sound. It also features an airtight tapered rubber base that seals out wind from the rear of the microphone, greatly improving isolation and rear wind protection.

    When used on a shotgun microphone, this slip-on windshield is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to strong breeze conditions (4-25 mph) and users can generally expect a 24dB to 40dB reduction in wind noise with negligible dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the negligible high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the dramatic wind noise reduction.

    In addition to superior 360° wind protection, the WSS-2014 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Audio-Technica, Neumann, Røde, Sanken, Sennheiser and others.

    The WSS-2014 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones is an advanced solution for outstanding wind protection with acoustic transparency.

    Fits these and other similar sized microphones:
    Audio-Technica AT 835ST (BP4029), AT 897

  • Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable - 20' (6.1 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable (20') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.
    Twin-conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
    24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.
    Caged type contact and improved ground contact.

  • Kopul XRSM 3-Pin XLR Female to 3.5mm RA Stereo Mini-Plug Cable (1.5')

    The 1.5' XRSM 3-Pin XLR Female to 3.5mm RA Stereo Mini-Plug Cable from Kopul is engineered for high-impedance microphones or line-level signals to bring audio from an XLR output to a stereo 1/8" input of a camera or recorder. It can be used in various applications for videographers, sound designers, and engineers as a solution in audio production.

    XRSM cables are engineered for flexibility while offering superb protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. The cable features a gold-plated 1/8" (3.5mm) right-angle stereo Mini-Plug connector with molded strain relief and an XLR connector with chuck-style strain relief by Rean. The 24-gauge OFC conductor, copper spiral shielding, and PE insulation work together to produce a quiet cable with excellent conductivity that assures pure transfer of audio signals.

    In addition, when using low-impedance microphones, a cable with a built-in transformer may be required for many DSLRs or consumer camcorders. In this scenario, the Kopul LMT-100 will match the impedance and provide a better solution to bring an audio signal from an XLR output to a stereo 1/8" input.

    XLR to Mini-Plug Connection
    The Kopul XRSM Series cables are engineered to bring signal from an XLR output to the stereo 1/8" input of a camera or recorder
    Shielding
    The copper spiral shielding provides more than 90% coverage and offers superb rejection of radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic (EM) interference
    Conductivity
    24-gauge oxygen-free copper (OFC) conductors and polyethylene insulation offer excellent conductivity for a good transfer of audio signal
    Connectors
    Studio-quality gold-plated 1/8" (3.5mm) right-angle stereo mini-plug connector and a female XLR connector provides clear signal transfer
    Strain Relief
    The Rean XLR connector with chuck-style strain relief and the molded strain relief of the mini-plug connector create a durable cable

  • Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip

    The Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip is a handheld grip that features an ergonomic cushioned handle. This grip is great in "run & gun" situations in which a boom pole would be cumbersome, and in video scenarios in which the cameraman is also responsible for audio recording. The grip can be held with one hand, as opposed to a boom pole which requires two. It also provides the option of being able to record audio from a different direction than the camera is pointing, an advantage over camera mounting the mic. Furthermore, having the mic mounted off the camera prevents it from picking up motor noise from the lens focusing.

    In addition, the grip features standard 3/8" threads on both ends. This allows you to attach your shotgun mic (with shockmount) to one end of the grip and mount the other end to a boom pole. This gives you the flexibility of being able to quickly detach the pistol grip and the attached shotgun mic from the boom, an option that can come in handy for entering areas that are too small for a boom pole.
