A selection of the most popular types are generally held in stock, but all the Sennheiser range are available to special order. Full brochures and data sheets are available on request - please advise for which types these are required. All types are 200 ohm output, with XLR connector, unless otherwise stated.
“Evolution” series dynamic microphones
The Evolution Series presents a complete range of dynamic microphones for every conceivable performance requirement. They combine more than 50 years of Sennheiser microphone design with the very latest advances in manufacturing and materials technology. The range delivers the highest standards of performance and construction at remarkably affordable prices. They feature rugged construction and component assembly including fully die cast zinc housings for all vocal mics, together with advanced suspension and shockmount techniques. New Neodymium magnet capsules are not only capable of handling very high sound pressure levels (>150dB SPL throughout the range), but give high output levels.
Cardioid dynamic speech and vocal mic with rugged metal housing and on/off switch. Frequency response: 80-12000Hz. Sensitivity: 1.5mV/Pa.
Cardioid entry-level vocal and general purpose microphone with noiseless reed on/off switch. Well balanced frequency response with a warm, clear and transparent signal.
Cardioid quality vocal microphones with uniform frequency pick-up pattern to maintain signal quality when moving on and off axis during performace. Gentle presence boost to ensure clarity and projection. Minimal proximity effect provides consistently clear bass send performance regardless of distance from mouth to microphone. e835S has noiseless reed on/off switch.
Cardioid dynamic lead vocal mic, with minimum proximity effect for consistent bass response at varying distance, and a gentle presence boost. The e840S has a noiseless on/off switch.
Super-cardioid performance vocal microphones with extended high frequency response. Smooth warm tonal response and full dynamic range, with presence lift for vocal clarity and projection. Consistent on/off axis and proximity response maintains sound clarity and consistency, giving greater freedom of movement to the user.
Cardioid dedicated bass microphone. Combines the latest lightweight high performance voice coil with a traditional large diaphragm capsule design to deliver very low bass response (down to 20Hz) and fast transient signals. Low frequency extension and mid band attenuation produces an ultra-smooth pre-shaped signal enabling the microphone to be used without corrective EQ.
Cardioid space-saving drum and brass microphone. Ideal for low visibility, close mic techniques. Supplied complete with drum clip.
Possibly the world’s smallest dynamic microphone, with a full-size sound quality. Hyper-cardioid pattern, ideal for almost invisible clip miking of woodwind, brass and drums. Newly developed clamp and gooseneck mounting enables the capsule to be positioned close to the signal source for high realism, high level output. Extensive damping and shockmounting isolates the capsule and signal from extraneous vibration, noise and impact. Humbucking coil protects against induced electrical interference. A high strength, reinforced glassfibre casing protects the capsule from impact damage.
An electret condenser instrument mic, designed for percussion overhead but also useful for flute, sax and other instruments. Frequency response: 40-20000Hz. Sensitivity: 3.0mV/Pa. Phantom power:12-52V, 3mA.
Omnidirectional reporter’s dynamic mic with excellent suppression of handling-noise and two-ply basket head for reduced wind noise and vocal “popping”. Frequency response: 40-18000Hz.
Cardioid reporter’s dynamic mic with extra-long body, excellent suppression of handling noise and two-ply basket head for reduced wind noise and vocal “popping”. Frequency response: 40-18000Hz.
Cardioid pick-up pattern. Well known general purpose studio mic, with 5 position bass filter. Suitable windshields are MZW421 and MZW40F. MZS421 is shockmount, useful for radio station usage where the MD421 is used as an on-air microphone.
Pre-polarised condenser gooseneck microphone for talkback and conference use. The microphone is terminated with an 8-pin screw-lock DIN connector for connection with the Sennheiser iCL conference system, or can be panel mounted with a suitable socket. The extra pins on the connector are for supplying a DC voltage to the red light ring at the microphone head, which is used for signalling or indicating when the microphone is live.
Pre-polarised condenser modular system
The powering module for all capsules has an on/off switch, with battery test position, and also a switchable bass cut (high pass) filter. Powered either by an internal 1.5v battery (AA size, order separately) or by external phantom power, black finish. Order microphone capsule(s) separately.
Otherwise similar to the K6, this version is operated by phantom power only.
This is the K6 system omni-directional capsule. Suitable windshields are MZW64 or MZW64PRO. Order powering module separately.
A cardiod response capsule for K6 powering modules. Suitable windshields are MZW64 or MZW64PRO. Order powering module separately.
With a mesh pop-filter, the ME65 is the super-cardiod response capsule of the K6 system. The MZW65PRO is a suitable windshield. Order powering module separately.
The K6 system short gun capsule. Suitable windshields include the MZW66 or MZW66PRO. Basket windshields or Rycote Softie windshields are also available. Order powering module separately.
Long gun capsule for K6 system. Suitable windshield MZW67PRO. Rycote Softies also available. Order accessory kit and powering module separately.
High quality sub-miniature tie-clip microphone for use with K6 system, diameter 4.8mm, weight only 1g. “Umbrella” diaphragm protects the capsule from moisture and sweat. Delivered with two caps which slightly modify frequency response, for matching to individual voices. Colour black.
Studio quality omnidirectional for digital recording. With linear response down to 25Hz, it is excellent for neutral recordings within the direct sound field. Diffuse field switch is fitted. 10dB switchable pad. 48 volt phantom powered. Suitable windshield MZW41.
Studio quality figure-of-eight response for digital recording. 10dB switchable pad. Switchable bass roll-off filter. Ideal M-S stereo microphone, used with MKH40 and MZD30 clip. 48 volt phantom powered. Suitable windshield MZW41.
Studio quality cardioid for digital recording. Switchable 10dB output level cut to prevent overmodulation with very high sound pressure levels. Switchable bass roll-off filter. 48 volt phantom powered. Suitable windshield MZW41.
Studio quality hyper-cardioid for digital recording. Other specifications as MKH40.
MKH60 and MKH70
