Article No.  700251

Features13

  • Bi-directional figure-8 polar pattern captures sound equally from front and rear while efficiently rejecting sound from the side
  • Highly symmetrical and frequency-independent pick-up pattern
  • Ideal choice for combining with a cardioid or super-cardioid mic to provide a MS-Stereo setting
  • Low-tension diaphragm and symmetrical, acoustically open push-pull transducer design keeps the sound flow as unrestricted and undistorted as possible
  • Extended bass response allows for capturing sound in its full frequency extent and gives more freedom for microphone positioning
  • Extended treble range (up to 50 kHz) captures sound in fine detail with precise transient response
  • German-engineered with durable metal housing and rugged construction for superior reliability
  • Moisture-resistant design ideal for use in humid, hot, and cold environments where other mics fail
  • Low self-noise for greater detail in audio; retains the softness of quiet sounds, increases dynamics, and more
  • Low non-linear distortion avoids adding new frequency spectrum thus keeping sonic clarity
  • Compact size for easy transport; visually unobtrusive in live shows or TV
  • Modular design allows for easy combination with various MKH 8000 accessories
  • Nextel® non-reflecting paint ensures no reflection from stage lights, keeping mic visually unobtrusive in live shows or TV
