What's Included

The MKH 416 transformerless, RF condenser is designed as a combination of pressure gradient and interference tube microphones. Very good feedback rejection, low proximity effect, 130 dB/SPL. Rugged and resistant to changing climate conditions. Ideal for boom, fishpole, and camera mounting.

Its excellent directivity and compact design, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection make the MKH 416 a superb all-around microphone for film, radio and television, especially for outside broadcast applications.

Interference Tube Principle

·      Pressure gradient receiver with short interference tube

·      Employs RF-technology to control residual microphone noise. Optimizing the transducer's acoustic impedance results in a further improvement in low noise performance.

·      The RF-design yields exceptionally low noise levels and is virtually immune to humidity and moisture.

·      The comparatively low RF-voltage across the elements of the transducer also eliminates arcing and DC-bias creeping currents.

·      Hypercardioid at low and medium frequency, above 2kHz approaches lobar pattern

·      Very low inherent self-noise

·      High sensitivity

·      Transformerless and fully floating balanced output

·      Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions

·      Matt black all-metal body

·      Increased directivity

·      Optimum S/N ratio

·      Lower gain on input channels required

·      Lowest noise and greatest signal stability

·      Highly immune to humidity in all conditions. Extremely stable.

·      Visually "low key"
