The MKE 400 is a compact, highly directional on-camera shotgun microphone ideal for vloggers and videographers that want to isolate and enhance the audio for their video. Like the MKE 200, the MKE 400 includes built-in wind protection and integrated shock absorption, while offering even more features to ensure the best possible recordings. Its directionality is achieved by an acoustic interference tube which helps to isolate the audio in front of the camera and reject unwanted background noise from the sides. Compatible with DSLR/M cameras or mobile devices via the provided 3.5 mm TRS and TRRS locking coiled cables, switching from one device to another is accomplished with ease.
Two triple-A batteries power the microphone for up to 100 hours of continuous audio capture and a cold-shoe mount with quarter-20 thread allows for universal mounting. Advanced features include a 3-step gain sensitivity switch to ensure distortion free sound in any environment, a switchable low-cut filter to focus your audio on essential frequencies for clarity and speech intelligibility, and a convenient headphone output with volume control to monitor your levels. A furry windshield is included with each MKE 400 and provides maximum wind protection while outdoors. Also available as the “MKE 400 Mobile Kit” which includes the MKE 400 microphone, Sennheiser Smartphone Clamp and Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod in a convenient package for your camera bag or mobile set-up.
Focus your sound
The MKE 400 features a super-cardioid polar pattern enhanced by an acoustic interference tube, providing focus and detail while rejecting unwanted background noise. Ideal for vloggers and videographers alike, this highly directional microphone will enhance your audio and bring presence and clarity to your recordings.
Record with confidence
All handheld cameras are susceptible to handling noise, so the MKE 400 features integrated wind protection and shock absorption. This combination ensures the cleanest audio recordings possible while shooting video on the move. Attach the included furry windshield for maximum wind protection in outdoor environments.
Versatile by design
In today’s world, your video recording is most likely not confined to one device, and your microphone doesn’t have to be either. Each MKE 400 includes 3.5 mm TRS and TRRS locking cables to be used with DSLR/M cameras or mobile devices.
Adapt to the situation
Let’s face it, poor acoustic environments are practically unavoidable when traveling or shooting on location. That’s why the MKE 400 comes equipped with both a low-cut filter and a 3-step gain sensitivity switch. Use the low-cut filter to remove problematic low frequency rumble or wind noise and adjust your gain sensitivity to optimize recording levels for any environment.
Before you start rolling
One of the most important steps when recording audio is to check your levels and monitor your sound. While some cameras have a headphone jack, not all do, and that’s where the headphone monitoring output comes into play. Plug any 3.5 mm headphone directly into the MKE 400 and use the integrated volume control to dial in your recordings.
