Great mike just push the gain
ianos, 11.11.2019
Purchased for vocals and snare miking, I have found it much more useful for snare miking.

Over or under-snare works great and having the switch to alter the settings from 'Speech' to 'Music' with several grades in between, as well as hi boost switch allows plenty of tweaking possibilities.

In terms of vocals it looks great, bringing images of Bowie and Stevie Nicks (and now Hozier is using one live too), however it has been tricky for live performance in my experience. It needs a lot of gain on the mixer, and has always felt a little dull/ less responsive than a trusty SM58 or even a Sennheiser MD421. If someone is looking for something interesting for concert vocals I would rather reccomend that, it's cheaper and a bit more friendly to the performer (in my opinion).

I wouldn't sell it but it is not as versatile as I originally expected. Great to have when variation in a drum miking is needed.

Costa, ma se sai dove usarlo è impagabile
31.10.2016
Ho avuto la fortuna di provare questo microfono e me ne sono subito innamorato.
Erano anni che cercavo un microfono da mettere sul rullante che mi desse attacco, definizione, la giusta curva di equalizzazione e se per caso rientrasse un po' del suono del charleston, fosse comunque bello da sentirsi.
Premetto che ho uno studio di registrazione.
Prima utilizzavo lo shure sm57, grandissimo e versatilissimo microfono, ma per me non regge il confronto con l'md441.
Non è solo una questione di prezzo.
Nel sm57, se il batterista suona troppo forte il charleston, si hanno molti problemi a creare un suono di charleston che sia brillante e piacevole. Purtroppo la ripresa laterale del sm57 è molto colorata e mediosa, quindi diciamo che non è proprio buona per un pezzo della batteria come il charly.
Con l'md441 invece, anche se il batterista dovesse suonare molto forte il charleston, si ha un suono sempre piacevole e utilizzabile in mix, anche nel caso ci sia bisogno di alzare molto le frequenze alte del rullante.

Ha uno switch in coda per enfatizzare le frequenze alte e nel registrare il rullante lo tengo inserito.

L'ho provato anche in altre situazioni, ma non mi ha fatto entusiasmare come suono.

È molto buono per riprendere trombe, tromboni e sassofoni.
Molto utile nella ripresa della voce in situazioni rumorose (Live recording)

Pro:
Suono
Ripresa fuori asse
Custodia
Versatilità (batteria, voci, strumenti a fiato)

Schön für Holzbläser im Homerecording, bei Sprachaufnahmen keine Alternative zum Kondensator-Mikrofon
Alexander, 10.05.2015
Ich habe mir das Mikrofon gekauft, da ich als Home-Recorder Aufnahmen in akustisch nicht optimierten Räumen machen muss. Meine Frau erlaubt weder die Auskleidung unseres Wohnzimmers mit Akustikmaterial, noch mit schwerem Samt.

Das Sennheiser sollte zum einen für Sprach-Aufnahmen, zum anderen zur Aufzeichnung von Consort-Blockflöten (Alt bis Subbass) in Überspieltechnick verwendet werden.

Für die Verwendung der Sprach-Aufnahmen hatte mich neugierig gemacht, die Empfehlung eines Tests-Magazins, dass dieses Mikrofon eine Alternative zu einem Kondensator-Mikrofon mit Reflexions-Schutz-Schirm ist.

Die Verarbeitung ist absolut wertig und zaubert ein Lächeln, wenn es in der Hand liegt.

Sprach-Aufnahmen: Ich habe das Mikrofon an einem Tisch verwendet, als Unterlage ein großes Lammfell. Reflexionen gibt es wirklich keine. Der aufgenommene Bereich ist wirklich genau umgrenzt. Selbst das rechts daneben dröhnende Laptop ist nicht wahrnehmbar. Die Stimme kommt vollkommen trocken. Die Sprechstimme (männlich) bekommt einen schönes volles und warmes Timbre. Aber: verglichen mit einem Midprice-Kondensator-Mikrofon (SE 2200) fehlen Details. Der Höhenbereich ist nicht präsent. Insgesamt ist das Bild des Sennheiser aber rund und stimmig. Es erinnert an ein schönes, altmodisches Röhrenradio. Das Kondensator Mikrofon hingegen wirkt klarer, es bildet mehr Details ab, ist aber auch schriller. Die Störungen durch die Raumreflexion und die daneben stehende Festplatte werden gnadenlos dargestellt. Dennoch ist insgesamt die Sprachverständlichkeit beim Kondensatormikrofon besser.

Das Sennheiser ist für mich keine wirkliche Alternative bei Sprach-Aufnahmen zum Kondensator-Mikrofon. Es ist bildet mir nicht klar genug ab, auch wenn es sich schön anhört. Ich werde mir hierfür ein höherpreisiges Großmembran und einen Reflexions-Schutz-Schirm zulegen.

Blockflöten: Es sollten 6 Blockflöten verschiedener Größen im Überspielverfahren abgenommen werden und sich möglichst perfekt mischen. Es soll keine davon im Mix nach vorne gebracht werden, die Flöten sollen eher gemeinsam wie ein einziges Instrument klingen. Die Flöten klingen warm, die Obertöne sind wie gewünscht zurückgenommen. Sie lassen sich sehr gut mischen und klingen angenehm. Der Blockflöten-Charakter wird gut dargestellt. Im Vergleich zum Neumann KM 184 werden auch hier weniger Details eingefangen. Der endgültige Mix hat mir dennoch sehr gut gefallen. Deshalb behalte ich es für diesen Zweck. Für Blockflöten ist das Mikrofon zu empfehlen.

Ich bin kein Profi, sondern Amateur-Musiker, der ein wenig Home-Recording macht. Aufgenommen mit Cubase 8, Yamaha UR824, MYTEK 192 ADC, LAKE PEOPLE MIC-AMP F355. Ach ja, das Mikrofon braucht Einiges an Vorverstärkung, nicht zu vergessen.
