The new MK 4 is a large-diaphragm, true condenser microphone. This cardioid microphone is Sennheiser’s first large-diaphragm side-address microphone. It features a nickel-colored finish and has a large 1-inch diaphragm spattered with 24-carat gold.
The sturdy metal housing and the elastically mounted capsule make the microphone tough enough for even the most energetic recording situations. The excellent suppression of handling noise offered by the internal capsule mount can be even further improved by the use of an elastic suspension, which is available as an accessory. The open front of the suspension mount enables the MK 4 to be positioned close to the sound source. The microphone has a maximum SPL of 140 dB, and its self-noise of 10 dB(A) is extremely low.
The MK 4 will be available after NAMM and comes complete with a microphone clip and a protective pouch. Optional accessories include an elastic suspension, a foam windshield and a popshield.
