Engineered with recording audio in film, radio, and television in mind, the MKH 416 from Sennheiser is a short shotgun interference microphone refined for outdoor applications. It provides superb directional control from a tiny footprint with high consonant articulation and rejection of feedback. The MKH 416 is highly resilient to humidity because of its RF condenser design, and the unit functions as a hypercardioid at low and medium frequencies with a lobar pattern above 2 kHz.

High directivity, low self noise, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection make the MKH 416 the perfect solution for handling difficult exterior filming and reporting conditions. A stylish matte black finish completes the microphone’s pleasing aesthetic.

  • Increased directivity due to interference tube principle
  • Very low inherent self-noise
  • High sensitivity
  • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
  • Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions
  • Matt black all-metal body
