Sennheiser MKH 8050 Super-Cardioid Microphone


Versatile super-cardioid microphone

Super-cardioid microphone. Perfect for recording soloists, large instruments like the grand piano but also orchestras. Balanced frequency response within the pick-up pattern. Absolute acoustical separation of instruments.

Thanks to its super-cardioid pick-up pattern the MKH 8050 offers an even higher attenuation of off-axis sound, than its sister model MKH 8040. Thus, it is a perfect choice for recording soloists, and when absolute acoustical separation is demanded.

Its balanced frequency response throughout the whole pick-up pattern ensured that large instruments like the grand piano but also orchestras sound musically flawless and free of distortion. The Nextel® coating of the MKH 8050 prevents reflections, giving you the freedom to position the microphone according to acoustic criteria alone.
