The Supercardioid Shotgun Condenser Microphone head is designed for use with the Sennheiser K6 and K6P powering modules. Matt black, anodised, scratch-resistant finish.

  • Super-cardioid/lobar pick-up pattern
  • Highly directional
  • Low inherent self-noise
  • High sensitivity Wide frequency response

The Sennheiser ME 66 is a supercardioid shotgun condenser microphone is designed to provide focused sound pickup for boom operators, sound engineers, and videographers in ENG, EFP, video and television production, broadcast, and interviews. Its supercardioid/lobar polar pattern delivers a tight, focused pickup area with effective rejection of sounds from the sides and rear of the mic. A wide 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response ensures accurate signal capture across the frequency spectrum, making it welcome for recording dialog, Foley, sound effects, and ambient noise.

With high sensitivity and maximum SPL ratings, it works well with a variety of preamps and can handle both hushed and loud sound sources. Its low self-noise yields an improved signal-to-noise ratio appropriate for typical digital recording systems.

The Supercardioid Shotgun Condenser Microphone easily attaches to a K6 or K6P powering module (required and available separately) for simple integration with standard microphone preamps. Its compact body allows camera and boom pole mounting while remaining out of the shot.

It is especially suitable for reporting, film and broadcast location applications and for picking up quiet signals in noisy or acoustically live environments as it discriminates against sound not emanating from the main pick-up direction.
