Product Description

Sennheiser MKH 8030

The MKH 8030 figure-8 microphone allows recording professionals to capture pristine sound over an extended frequency range in nearly any environment. The MKH 8030 is ideal as the S mic in M-S, double M-S, and Blumlein stereo recording set ups. Like all Sennheiser MKH 8000 series microphones, the MKH 8030 features a symmetrical, acoustically open, push-pull transducer which reduces distortion and provides a precise polar pattern with minimal off-axis colouration. In combination with a low-tension diaphragm, this design delivers remarkable sensitivity and wide frequency response, so you can capture sound as authentically as possible..

Based on the renowned dual-capsule technology of Sennheiser’s MKH 800 Twin microphone, the MKH 8000 series is the complete toolkit for audio professionals. The series includes the MKH 8020 omni-directional, MKH 8030 figure-8, MKH 8090 wide cardioid, MKH 8040 cardioid, MKH 8050 super-cardioid, MKH 8060 super-cardioid/lobar, and the MKH 8070 lobar

Each MKH 8000 microphone features signature Sennheiser build quality with a robust metal housing and rugged construction. Perfect for outdoor applications such as sports broadcasting and wilderness recording excursions, MKH 8000 microphones allow you to head into the field with confidence. They are ideal for use in humid, hot, and cold how environments because the permanent RF current flow at the microphone capsule naturally evaporates moisture.
