Perfect sound for better pictures.

The success of your work depends on achieving the perfect interplay of image and sound – and under the most difficult conditions. No matter if you’re shooting outdoors in the city or indoors with poor acoustics: Sennheiser has the perfect solution for first-class video sound.

The MKE 600, the condenser microphone with outstanding directivity was developed for video journalists who require high-quality audio and easy to use equipment. When you need to switch locations and change camera settings quickly, this shotgun microphone is your ideal companion for demanding shoots.

The MKE 600’s main strength is its rich sound with its excellent reproduction of low frequencies. This allows you to record speech easily and ensures high intelligibility. Its high directivity means that even audio that was recorded from a distance sounds as if the speaker had been much closer to the microphone. Furthermore, lateral interference noise is reliably suppressed. The low-cut filter reduces handling noise and wind noise. With the MKE 600, you can enjoy perfect sound without the noise.

No phantom power required. Since not all video cameras are equipped to supply phantom power for a micro- phone, the MKE 600 can also be operated using standard AA batteries. Battery power can be switched on easily and then switched off again when the camera is no longer in use – this keeps the battery from discharging too rapidly. An LED on the battery switch lets you know when the batteries are running low while there is still a reserve of approximately eight hours – enough time to finish your shoot successfully.

The MKE 600 is a professional shotgun condenser microphone for video journalists and is used at locations where high-quality audio and simple operation are required. Bothersome lateral interference noise is suppressed and the microphone’s low-cut filter ensures the additional attenuation of handling and wind noises. The MKE 600, along with its professional accessories, make up a sophisticated system for flawless recordings.
