Overview

Our take on the Sennheiser MK 4 and Shockmount Bundle

Sennheiser built the MK 4 microphone to fit the needs of both the professional studio and the home recording enthusiast. It's designed to capture vocals with exceptional fidelity, and the included MKS 4 shock mount ensures a noise-free performance when recording voices. The mic's gold-plated diaphragm is enclosed in a large capsule that's shock-mounted in a tough metal housing, so this mic will handle the occasional hard knock without a problem.

For the best results with vocals

Sennheiser built the MK 4 microphone to fit the needs of both the professional studio and the home recording enthusiast.

Versatile enough for other applications

You'll find the MK 4 a good choice for many other applications, especially instruments with a strong high-frequency presence like acoustic guitar, strings, and wind instruments. But this mic, with its large diaphragm and rugged construction, is equally at home with guitar amps, drums, or anything that rocks. This bundle includes the MK 4 microphone, shockmount, a mounting clamp, and a carrying pouch.

    Features

    Overview: The MK4SET is a microphone kit consisting of the Sennheiser MK4 microphone and a MKS4 suspension shock mount, which is designed to work with the MK4 mic.

    • MK4 Microphone: The MK4 is a large-diaphragm true condenser, cardioid microphone for professional recordings. Featuring fine resolution and outstanding sound quality, the MK4 is easy to handle and an excellent value, making it an ideal choice for professional and home studios. It features a 1" true condenser capsule, which is internally shock-mounted, a 24-carat gold-plated diaphragm, full metal housing, and low self-noise with high maximum SPL.
    • MKS4 Shock Mount: The MKS4 is a sturdy, open-ringed, metal frame with an elastic suspension that allows the MK4 mic to be positioned close to the sound source while preventing vibrations from reaching the mic.

    Polar Pattern: The MK4 has a cardioid polar pattern, which has maximum sound pickup directly in front of it, slightly less pickup from the sides, and no pickup from the rear of the mic.

    Connection: The MK4 provides a balanced output on a standard male, 3-pin XLR connector.

    Phantom Power: Because the MK4 is a condenser mic, it requires 48 V of phantom power.

    • Capsule: Condenser
    • Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz
    • Sensitivity: 25 mV/Pa
    • Impedance: 50 Ohms
