MKH 8070
General Description
The MKH 8070 long shotgun microphone is ideal for broadcast and sporting applications requiring natural sound and high directivity to take viewers inside the action. The MKH 8070 captures true and natural sound at great distances with a pronounced lobar pattern and a long interference tube that suppresses off-axis sound without coloration. With its symmetrical RF condenser design, the MKH 8070 performs even under the toughest sonic and environmental conditions. The MKH 8070 is Sennheiser’s first long shotgun to interface directly into digital systems with the MZD 8000 digital module.
