Sennheiser ME66 overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser ME 66/K6P - Supercardioid Mic Capsule with K6P Kit includes an ME66 supercardioid shotgun microphone capsule and a K6P power module. The ME 66 features a highly directional supercardioid/lobar polar pattern, allowing for high off-axis rejection and focused pick up. It can handle up to 125 dB SPL, and has a frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz. The ME 66 is powered by the included K6P power module, which supplies not only power, but features a switchable bass roll-off switch and on/off switch.

  • Sennheiser ME 66 Supercardioid Shotgun Microphone Head

    The Sennheiser ME 66 is a supercardioid shotgun condenser microphone designed to provide focused sound pickup for boom operators, sound engineers, and videographers in ENG, EFP, video and television production, broadcast, and interviews. Its supercardioid/lobar polar pattern delivers a tight, focused pickup area with effective rejection of sounds from the sides and rear of the mic. A wide 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response ensures accurate signal capture across the frequency spectrum, making it welcome for recording dialog, Foley, sound effects, and ambient noise.

    With high sensitivity and maximum SPL ratings, it works well with a variety of preamps and can handle both hushed and loud sound sources. Its low self-noise yields an improved signal-to-noise ratio appropriate for typical digital recording systems.

    The ME 66 easily attaches to a K6 or K6P powering module (required and available separately) for simple integration with standard microphone preamps. Its compact body allows camera and boompole mounting while remaining out of the shot.

  • Sennheiser K6P Powering Module (Phantom Only)

    The Sennheiser K6P is the mic body and power supply for Sennheiser's professional condenser modular microphone system. You can assemble a complete microphone, with your choice of pick-up pattern, by combining the K6P with one of five different K6-series microphone heads (not included).

    The K6P features a black, anodized, scratch-resistant finish. It's designed for use in situations where phantom power is present. Users who need a battery-powered mic can purchase Sennheiser's K6, instead. The K6P features a switchable bass roll-off filter to help reduce low end rumble, handling noise, wind noise, and pops. It also features an On/Off switch, and a transformerless balanced output on a 3-pin XLR connector.

Sennheiser ME66 reviews

ME 66/K6P - Supercardioid Microphone Capsule with K6P Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mic for the money I've used this mic on-camera and on a boom and I've been very happy with it--Very lightweight and sound quality rivals a MK 416. Not quite as full and rich, but as always, you get what you pay for. Great for inteviews. I like the price-point on the mic and it's efficiency. I also like the built-in phantom power--great battery life. Good, rugged build, nice directional coverage. On-camera with DSLR video, a huge step up from your basic Rode Videomic. Also works very well with the Zoom H4N. Hard not to like this mic--does it's job well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mic I use this for shooting documentaries and it works great for interviews. I have good results even in loud ambient situations. On the downside: It does come with a price-tag but worth it. It's fairly long so mount it correctly. I've had to use electrical tape to keep it in place. Be careful at wide angle so it doesn't end up in shot. Uses phantom power so if your camera or audio capture device has phantom great! Other wise you need a AA battery. The battery light is kinda hard to see so when I've used a battery I always had an earpiece in to make sure it was working. Also has on/off for battery you must remember to turn on. Downside are not really bad but just a few tips I recommend with an otherwise good investment. I've traveled in wet jungles and very cold weather and mic has held up nicely. Also recommend getting the windscreen. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome mic! I bought mine 15 years ago, and, frankly, I've thrashed it. But build quality and sound quality are still beyond belief. I've read some rather poorly informed questions about this mic, and let me say; this is NOT a stereo mic. It is a MONO mic with ONE channel. It is the best directional mic I've ever seen. I was once doing an interview and a helicopter landed behind me about 100 yards away, and we just barely heard the chopper in the background. I also use it for voice narrations in the studio, and although there are better studio mics, I see no reason to buy two mics when one will do the job. Besides, I do voiceovers in my home studio, and outside noises are canceled by the excellent directionality of this mic. Build quality is the best, and the battery in the power module lasts forever. If I could give it ten stars, I would. Yes, it's pricey, but you are definitely getting what you pay for.
