In a world where low-quality side address condenser microphones are all too common, Sennheiser is proud to introduce the MK 4 studio condenser microphone. MK4 is Sennheiser's first large-diaphragm studio condenser microphone. MK4 features a 1" true condenser capsule, optimized for studio applications. Sennheiser designed the MK 4 to provide maximum sound quality at a very competitive price point, focusing on what it takes to make an excellent studio microphone. The MK 4 is made in Germany, which is also unique at this price point. The actual transducer is manufactured in the same clean room as all high-end Sennheiser and Neumann condenser capsules. While the MK 4 is chiefly designed for professional use in project studios, it is also a versatile tool for all recording environments and even on stage. Due to its affordable price it is also an ideal choice for home recorders and musicians on a budget.
