Overview

At the heart of any studio is the primary vocal microphone. If one of the "holy grail" microphones is not in your price range but you are committed to great vocal sound, the Sennheiser MK8 is an excellent option. The MK8 is a dual-diaphragm true condenser microphone with five switchable polar patterns, a 3-position switchable low cut/roll-off filter and a 3-position pad switch. It features two 24-carat gold plated 1" diaphragms in a rugged metal housing with a shock-mounted capsule and safely sheltered electronics.

The MK 8 offers a great solution for advanced home recording applications and project studios alike. It is the microphone for people who pour all of their passion into their audio projects. The MK 8 offers sophisticated options to sign off your sound with your own personal handwriting. The dual-diaphragm condenser microphone delivers warm and precise sound reproduction. Its five independent polar patters allow for a multitude of recording applications and sound design options.

No matter which mixing desk or recording device is used, the MK 8 matches the input sensitivity with a 3-step attenuator. Two adjustable filters compensate for the proximity effect as well as low frequency rumble or structure born noise. The MK 8 has dual one-inch diaphragms precisely spattered with 24-carat gold. The shock-mounted capsule is accommodated within a sturdy metal housing.
