MKH RF Microphones
Sennheiser`s MKH Line has constantly set
new standards in broadcast and recording.
The microphones operate on the RF principle
which Sennheiser has used for more than
50 years and brought to the highest level of
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.
Sennheiser has recently updated its classic
MKH Line with the new MKH 8070 long gun
microphone which combines the strengths
of the legendary MKH 816 with new
developments in sound characteristics.
The new MKH 8070 is in a league of its own.
Its excellent directivity and off-axis linearity
make it your ideal team member for major
broadcast and sporting events.
Due to its excellent directivity and
pronounced lobar pick-up pattern it will
reliably capture that magic moment from a
distance, offering a true and natural sound
even under the toughest sonic and climatic
The MKH 8070`s special design ensures
attenuation of off-axis sound without
