Good sound with limitations

voiceco, 30.09.2017
Beautifully made, the MC-950 feels solid and has switchable LFA and a pad which puts it in the territory for location recording to reduce handling and wind noise.
It sounds accurate and slightly warmer than the Sennheiser 8050 and seems less sensitive to handling noise, even with the LFA set to flat..
However, it does suffer from a high degree of self noise, more so than a microphone of this pedigree should. In a normal domestic room, this noise is very noticeable at voice levels.
Its possibly not an issue in an environment with high SPLs but would be with quieter solo instruments.
This is the second one I have tried. The first had such high self noise, I could barely hear a signal while speaking normally and there was no room atmosphere, just hiss.
I'm surprised that a professional microphone from a such an established and well-regarded company should fall short of the mark. A shame since, on paper it looks perfect.

Also good for stereo recordings from Kirchench ren

Rainer289, 08.11.2009
Nobody can really imagine the advantages of a pair of supernading microphones just for recording church choirs or musical performances. In doing so, one gains much more freedom of design during recording.

Due to the higher distance to the sound body, the individual sound sources are mixed much better, the sound image is much more homogeneous. In addition, the microphones with their greater distance do not disturb the visitors in the church. Of course, there are some manufacturers in the market who offer similar but also much more expensive small diaphragm microphones with which one can of course achieve very good results. The Beyerdynamic-MC-Set, on the other hand, allows a wide range of recording situations to be mastered professionally, eg: piano, acoustic guitar, drum overheads, percussion, rooms, etc ... You always have an elegant sound And stereophony).

Unfortunately, Beyerdynamic does not offer the MC-950 as a balanced stereopair. To this one must buy the necessary accessories. For a stereo set should not have a stable transport case (a noble wooden case does not have to be), two good elastic suspensions (EA 19/25), wind protection attachments (WS 53) for outdoor recording and important variable stereo holder (MAV 802) to forget! In this compilation, this microphone pair is an unbeatable stereo set.
What I personally still wish, is the extension of the MC-900 series around an eighth microphone. This would then also M / S recordings or Blumlein stereophonie possible.
