Sennheiser MKE 600 Shotgun Microphone
Looking for a reliable shotgun microphone to capture professional-grade audio for your video production? The Sennheiser MKE 600 is an excellent choice for demanding applications such as field recording, video production, and broadcast.
The Sennheiser MKE 600 has high sensitivity and low-noise circuitry unlock improved sound quality without extreme gain on noisy camera preamps. With a natural roll-off at 40 Hz and a selectable low-cut filter at 100 Hz, the MKE 600 can deliver clear intelligibility while attenuating low-frequency noise such as rumble. Additionally, its frequency response incorporates a gentle rise in treble to enhance speech clarity.
The lightweight and durable metal housing ensures reliable toughness without weighing down your rig. The included shoe shockmount accommodates mounting the MKE 600 to a camera or tripod. You can connect the mic’s XLR output to an XLR-equipped mic preamp. Conversely, you can use the supplied adapter cable to plug it into the 3.5mm mic input on a camera.
The MKE 600 is the ideal video camera/camcorder microphone able to handle even demanding filmic challenges. Due to its high directivity, the MKE 600 picks up sounds coming from the direction in which the camera is pointing and effectively attenuates noise coming from the sides and rear. The switchable “Low Cut” filter additionally minimizes wind noise. Since some video cameras/camcorders do not provide phantom power, the MKE 600 can also be battery powered. A battery on/off switch prevents the battery from discharging prematurely; “Low Batt” is displayed.
