Sennheiser MKH 8070 Long gun/Rifle mic 506293

 Sennheiser MKH 8070

For long reach on location the Sennheiser 816 has been the mic of choice for many years. But Sennheiser's search for ever improving sound has delivered a modern long gun mic of the highest standard. 

The long shotgun microphone MKH 8070 was especially designed for picking up distant sources of sound in best quality. Its very natural sound makes it the ideal choice for major broadcast and sporting events. Featuring extreme directivity and a pronounced lobar pick-up pattern it will reliably capture that magic moment from a distance, even under the toughest sonic and climatic conditions. The MKH 8070's special design ensures attenuation of off-axis sound without coloration. Like all mics of the 8000-family it can be easily combined with the MZD 8000 digital module, turning it into a full-fledged digital microphone.

The 8070 features the Sennheiser RF condenser system, making the 8060 less sensitive to damp and moisture on set. The 8060 comes in the standard MKH 8000 livery and long lasting Nextel finish.
