Decent boom microphone

04.07.2016
I bought this boom mic for sound recording on film set and locations of various nature. For me the choice was between the Rode NTG 4+ and the Senheiser. So far I'm really pleased with the sound and quality of the product and have no regrets choosing the Sen over the Rode. My previous experience with boom microphones lies mainly with Senheiser products as I've been using the somewhat industry standard MKH-416 for a long time now. The ME66 with a price tag half the price of the 416 gives you decent sound, but compared to the 416.. well one does not have to be an audiophile to hear the difference. Don't get me wrong, it is a good mic but the 416 is just that much better, as it has a more warmer and rich sound to it. I'm using the ME66 together with the K6 powering module, it has a possibility to power the mic capsule with a conventional AA battery, a feature that I have never used as I power it with phantom from my Zoom F8 location recorder or Sound Devices 633, but a good feature when phantom power is not available. I would recommend the ME66 for sound guys and boom operators on budget or as an spare for the MKH-416. The overall quality of the microphone is really good as it is with every Senheiser product. I'm confident that this microphone will last for a long time. Another good quality is that the microphone is really light which is great as weight is always an issue for a boom operator on those long shooting days.

An excellent microphone

Steven8362, 22.04.2015
This is a superb quality microphone which could be used for both broadcast and studio use. For those considering the Rode NTG4 or similar, I'd recommend this product over those - the sensitivity is higher and directionality at typical vocal frequencies is slightly narrower, so ideal for use further away from the subject than others.
I've been using this mic for several weeks now and this is now my go-to microphone for most purposes. The noise rejection from the side is again slightly better than similar shotgun microphones in this price range, and the overall frequency response is surprisingly good. It's worth being aware that the ME66 needs both the K6 or K6p AND a microphone holder as this is just the shotgun module itself.
