Great Mic! Absolutely Love It!!
TheBrendanMcCoy, 12.12.2020
Let's face it, Sennheiser make great audio gear! And this mic is no exception. It may not have any bells and whistles (or high pass filters or DB pads) that some other microphones have, but what it does have, is that great Sennheiser sound and build quality

Micro polyvalent très simple mais bourré de qualités, une vraie réussite.
12XU, 19.09.2012
Je cherchais un statique LM polyvalent de qualité( dans le sens ou je pense qu'il vaut toujours mieux zapper le bas de gamme générique),cohérent avec ma chaine du son, mais à un tarif encore"humain".
Comprendre 350 € comme limite haute et indépassable car rajouter à chaque fois une poignée d'euros ou plus pour encore mieux se fera au détriment d'autre chose.
Finalement l'AKG 214, l'oktava mk105,le bluebird microphone et le sennheiser mk4 retiennent mon attention.Je me décide et commande le mk4.
Ce dernier,plutot récent en fait, commence à se tailler une petite réputation.
C'est mérité.
La fabrication est "made in germany",aussi il a fallu faire des concessions: directivité unique,pas de filtres et ...ça peut chagriner ; pas de joli boite en bois,pas de suspension inclue.Hum...Pas un problème,on enregistre principalement avec le micro(!) et celui ci est exploitable en l'état.(la suspension interne est de qualité).
Plus tard on pourra acquérir la suspension dédiée. Un peu chère,c'est vrai, mais dit on , fiable, robuste et pratique.
Je pense néanmmoins que cette offre spartiate tend à desservir le produit.
Ne vous laissez pas abuser par ce "dépouillement"; le micro est juste fabuleux.Testé jusqu'alors sur des guitares acoustiques et clarinette:l e rendu est très naturel et offre beaucoup de présence.Vraiment excellent.
Sur les voix, le son reste doux et non agressif,ce n'est pas un micro brillant et c'est tant mieux.
Le micro peut encaisser par ailleurs de forts niveaux de pression et convient sans soucis pour des instruments type percussion.A voir avec une batterie.
En résumé,je suis bluffé.S'il ne m'avait pas convenu, je l'aurais renvoyé sans remords( le service thomann est toujours compétent).
Pour ce prix, la qualité de son est inespérée , fabrication/finition sont irréprochables et la mise en place très simple.On travaille vite et bien.

In der Preisklasse wohl eins der besten.
Contrust, 02.12.2020
Für das Geld leistet dies Mikrofon echt gute Arbeit. Da sollte man eigentlich nicht meckern, jedoch habe ich für meine Ansprüche dann festgestellt, dass das dann doch nicht meine Preisklasse ist. Ich bin dann doch eher besser beim AKG C414 aufgehoben, welches derzeit knapp über 800 Euro kostet.

Ich würde dieses Mikrofon jeden amibtionierten Einsteiger empfehlen, jedoch nicht semi-professionellen Leuten. Ich komme mal zu den Schwachstellen:
- schwache untere Frequenzdarstellung, wodurch der Klang weniger voll und etwas kalt und dünn klingen mag
- etwas zu scharfe Höhen (De-Esser ist hier fast schon Plichtbearbeitung)
- bei höheren Pegel neigt das Mikrofon zur Verzerrung

Als diese Punkte werden wohl genauso auf alle anderen Mikrofone dieser Preisklasse zutreffen und können als gehobene Kritik betrachtet werden, da dieses Mikrofon für sein Geld gute Arbeit leistet, von daher lasst euch nicht abschrecken, falls das hier euer erste Mikrofon werden soll. Es ist auf jeden Fall jeden Euro wert.
