Sennheiser MKH 8040 Compact Cardioid Microphone

Due to its cardioid pick-up pattern the MKH 8040 is perfectly suitable for a wide range of applications. It features a balanced frequency response throughout the whole pick-up pattern, as well as a significantly reduced pick-up of rear sound without depriving it of its natural timbre: Very valuable talents when used in rooms with poor acoustics or when disturbing sounds impinge mainly from the rear.

  • Modular Design
  • Wide frequency response: 30 – 50,000 Hz
  • Extremely low distortion
  • Extremely low inherent self-noise
  • Balanced frequency response within the pick-up pattern
  • Very even directional diagram
  • Non-reflective Nextel® coating
  • Ideal as a spot microphone and for surround recordings
  • Timbrally identical with the other 8000-series microphones for optimum aural compatibility
