The ingredients for better sound
What makes the MKE 200’s sound so much better? Let’s take a look inside. This is where the heart of the microphone, the capsule, can be found. The MKE 200 is fitted with a directional capsule which ensures that the microphone will automatically capture the sound coming from the direction in which you are filming and make other audio softer. This way, your audio is always focused and your voice has presence when you talk into the camera.
The capsule is shock-mounted, which means that any handling noise – the sounds that occur when you touch the camera or smartphone – are not transferred to the microphone.
Directional, clean audio
The MKE 200 features a directional design which captures the sound of your subject while rejecting unwanted background noise. To minimize any handling noise, the microphone is fitted with a clever internal shock-mount which acoustically decouples the capsule from the housing. To protect from wind noise, Sennheiser engineers designed the MKE 200 with an integrated layer of protective mesh inside the housing. This protection is further enhanced by using the included furry windshield when filming outdoors.
A compact companion
The MKE 200 works without batteries, is lightweight and has the shock-mount inside the housing instead of outside as many other microphones. This ensures that nothing can break or get in the way or even set your gimbal off balance!
The MKE 200 comes complete with a furry windshield, two locking connection cables for DSLRs or mirrorless cameras (3.5 mm TRS cable) and mobile devices (3.5 mm TRRS cable) plus a draw-string pouch for storage.
