Sennheiser MKH 418


Microphone Description

Brand: Sennheiser
Model: MKH 418

The MKH 418 S is an MS stereo microphone. Its high degree of directivity makes the MKH 418 S the ideal choice for stereophonic recordings for reporting, film and television applications. It has two independent acoustic systems for generating the mid and side signals. The mid signal (M) is generated by a shotgun microphone system (based on the legendary MKH 416). At high frequencies, this results in a lobar pick-up pattern, whereas at low frequencies there is a transition to a super-cardioid characteristic. The side signal (S) is produced by a figure-of-eight capsule, whose positive side is directed to the left. The M and S signals are available independently at the microphone output. The S capsule sensitivity is 10mV/Pa and the self-noise is 22dBA.
