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.

FEATURES:

  • 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"
