Display model for testing in the store.
The new MKE 600 shotgun microphone from Sennheiser is a microphone that performs well in even the toughest video sound challenges. Its high level of directivity ensures that it picks up sound from the camera direction while reliably avoiding unwanted background noise. The switchable low-cut filter makes sure that handling and wind noise is minimised. Users can expect a very lifelike, full-bodied sound with good bass response and pleasant speech reproduction with high intelligibility. A shock mount with an integral flashmount adapter is included and the special design of the shock mount prevents handling noise from being transmitted to the microphone. Like any other shotgun microphone, the MKE 600 can also be used on a microphone boom. For cameras that do not provide phantom power, the MKE 600 can be powered by a standard AA battery. A switch is provided to deactivate the battery power when the camera is not in use, thus preventing the battery from being discharged. An LED on the battery switch ("Low Batt") indicates when the battery voltage is low. The MKE 600 comes fully equipped with a foam windshield that reduces wind noise by around 25 dB; the shock mount and a carrying case are also included.
