The Sennheiser MKE 600 is a camera mount microphone that can master even the toughest video sound challenges. Its high level of directivity ensures that it picks up sound from the camera direction while reliably attenuating unwanted sound coming from the sides and rear.
Wind noise is reduced by the included foam windshield, while a switchable low-cut filter additionally minimises wind and handling noise. An optional blimp (foam windshield/hairy cover combination) reduces wind noise even more effectively, making the MKE 600 the perfect choice for outdoor recordings.
The Sennheiser MKE 600 can be phantom powered or operated on an AA battery for about 150 hours.
Did You Know....... many top record producers, when recording vocals, will use a dynamic mic for up close vocals and a heavily compressed shotgun mic about five feet away. It's true! The dynamic mic not only captures part of the final sound, but is also useful for giving the artist something to focus on, keeping a fairly consistent position relative to the shotgun mic. Have a shotgun mic on hand for your next vocal session....it could be the goldmine you've been seeking!
Please Note! Sennheiser is phasing out production of their "ME - K6" series of microphones. The Sennheiser MKE600 is a direct replacement for the ME66/K6 combo as per Sennheiser!
