Sennheiser MKH 416

Alex Figueiras, 17.05.2013
The 416 is one of the most common microphones found on-set for TV, documentaries, and amateur film productions. This is for good reason; the capsule is solid, with a rugged steel frame that's both light and sturdy allowing it to take a few hits on a busy set.

The quality of sound produced by the microphone is crisp and clean. The circuitry is well made; with no offset or buzz when fed 48v phantom power. When utilised as a sync microphone it performs really well, with nice isolation on the front axis.

A word of advice; this microphone's isolation is very, VERY effective, so much so that you may find you'll need some practice keeping it trained on the sound source if you're using it with a boom, before you get the sounds you're after.

Microphone build quality is superb. Is perfect for any weather condition and it has far better response than Rode ntg 3. I use it with rode carbon pole and blimp mkII and it is very budget frendly high end sound recording kit.
