Is the MD-46 or the Electro-voice RE50 better in windy conditions? Which handles wind gusts better without a fur wind screen?
Asked by: Michael
Neither one is going to handle wind well. Get a fur wind screen! Probably the MD46 is better, but that's not saying much under windy conditions.

How sensitive is this mic? Would it work well plugged directly into the xlr port of a canon xa series camcorder or would it need a stronger preamp?
Asked by: Bret
Being that it is a dynamic mic, any recording device with an XLR mic input, will perfectly work with this mic.

Is this mic compatible with Sennheiser ew 100 g3 wireless transmitter?
Asked by: Donald
Yes, assuming you order the Sennheiser SKP 100 G3 Plug-on Transmitter that matches the
channel on your receiver. This is a great mic for interviews when installed on this transmitter.

What kind of receiver is needed for this wireless mic?

This is not a wireless mic. It has an XLR male connection on the bottom and can accept a wireless transmitter (sold separately).

I'm getting a lot of handling noise with this mic. Does anyone have a suggestion/best practices on how to minimize, or eliminate, the handling noise? I almost can't use the audio recorded because of this issue.
Asked by: Nathan V.
Swap out the XLR cable. The mic shouldn't be generating much handling noise in normal use. I'm on my second one now after taking my original one around the world doing interviews for six years, and finally retired it. The most likely cause is a bad connection inside the XLR connector on the mic end of the cable, since that's where most of the stress is placed in routine use.

Hi, I'm interested in buying one of these for interviews so I'll be using it outdoors mostly. Will I need a windshield and if so, what would be the best one to get?
Asked by: Jordan H.
For outdoor use a windscreen/windshield would be recommended. For very light wind situations a foam windscreen would suffice The Auray WHF-158 is a common choice. B&H # AUWHF158. For medium to high wind scenarios a more robust windshield would be recommended for quality results such as the K-Tek windsock B&H # KTKR5070.
