    Sennheiser is pleased to introduce the MKH 8090-a wide cardioid studio condenser microphone that is ideal for orchestral recordings and perfectly suited as a main or spot microphone. The MKH 8090 joins Sennheiser's acclaimed family of MKH 8000 Series microphones, which are designed to capture the soul of recordings.

    The MKH 8090 is a high-end RF condenser microphone with a wide cardioid pick-up pattern. It is the ideal main microphone when less acoustic impression of space is demanded. As a support microphone it excels in capturing larger groups of instruments. The microphone operates on the RF principle that has been used by Sennheiser for more than 50 years, now brought to the highest level of perfection. Among the many advantages of this principle are an extremely low inherent self-noise, the capability to handle high sound pressure levels without distortion, and a high resistance to adverse climatic conditions.
