Win a Sennheiser Shotgun mic worth £879!

Posted on Oct 20, 2023 by Pro Moviemaker

One lucky winner will receive a pro-quality MKH 416 shotgun mic from audio expert Sennheiser

When it comes to choosing a top-quality XLR mic that not only delivers superb clarity but will work for years, pro filmmakers rely on Sennheiser. Even in the fast-changing world of audio technology, the tried-and-tested MKH 416 is what switched-on creatives want. That’s why it’s been nominated for best XLR mic in the Pro Moviemaker Gear of the Year Awards!

This superb shotgun mic proves that great sound quality and incredible build are what most independent filmmakers demand – and the MKH 416 delivers. It is highly praised for recording vocals, like interviews or conversation, with impeccable speech reproduction and high intelligibility, thanks to quality across its entire 40Hz to 20kHz frequency range.

It’s a highly directional mic due to its advanced interference tube principle, as well as a  supercardioid/lobar polar pattern which isolates sound and rejects noise from the sides.

Compact dimensions of 19x250mm allow this portable unit to go with you wherever your shooting leads – perfect for OB applications. This is a legendary microphone every serious filmmaker should have.
