Sennheiser MK 4

Studio microphone

This cardioid microphone, manufactured in Germany, is Sennheiser's first large-diaphragm side-address microphone. With its nickel-colored finish, its sound structures are well resolved, and sound coming from the sides is picked up without coloration. The microphone has a harmonious presence; it has vivid mids and is also very detailed in the bass range. At the same time, typical cardioid cancellation is relatively frequency-independent. Its 1" diaphragm is precisely spattered with 24-carat gold. The sturdy metal housing and the elastically mounted capsule make the microphone tough.
