" I like this micro versatile, clean, balanced sound rather" - pierre7

13 January 2013
  • Excerpt: 1 year of use episodic. Enough to appreciate the qualities of the microphone. First bit of breath (about 10dB) which is my first requirement for high dynamics and its own! Then a good general review of deep bass to treble, treble not harsh like other cheaper microphones or corresponding rates as I (Rode, SP, etc.)...

"good for the studio" - stompboxjon

Audiofanzine
12 April 2012
  • Excerpt: There has been a lot of changes to the MD 421 II from the previous models. The 421 is built a lot tougher than the previous models and has a sleeker design to it. You will love using this mic if you can fit it into your budget. It will deliver a very clear clean sound with no feedback and as I said before there is a several position roll off swi...

" At the top!" - opskinz

28 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I just got it today, ordered on Audiocontact to € 320 with the SHOCKMOUNT! It is really perfect, it's on at first glance means nothing phew! But after one or two more tests, that's when I saw it stoned. I must say that with my old galérai C01U USB microphone, and passed to the Sennheiser MK4 is a seriously fun, voice blend...

"Great for voice work" - James...

20 December 2011
  • Excerpt: This is probably one of my favorite mics for really loud situations or situations where feedback is prone to happen. It won't feedback ever in my experience. The odd shape can be an issue if you don't have the proper clip at hand. And the clip it does use it very annoying. At the end of the day it's a great reliable mic for a number of odd u...

  • Excerpt: The MD 421 II is a fantastic microphone for most applications, and if I had to compare it to anything, which I do, even though the MD 421 II itself sets a standard, I could say (in a dangerous broad sweep of a statement) that it is a rich man's Shure SM57. One more interesting fact is that it CAN be used for vocals, although it wo...

MK 4 Microphone Review

Music Tech Magazine
17 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Although the Sennheiser company has been making all types of microphone in Germany since the end of World War II, it’s probably fair to say that its most iconic designs (like the 421 and the 441) are moving-coil dynamics rather than condensers. However, the company produces several high-end condenser microphone systems.

15 September 2010
  • Excerpt: For how long have you been using it? 6 years Did you try many other models before getting this one? yes What thing do you like most/least about it? Super on bass amp, toms drums, guitar amp (must love the color ... but it does), etc. .... What is your opinion about the value for the price? It is a...

15 May 2009
  • Excerpt: I have used mine for about a year. I like using it on toms the best. It picks up the low end that toms give without being overwhelmed. It gives a nice clear sound for them that most mics can't capture. It also has worked well for me on guitar amps, especially ones with heavy low end that really need the extra power. The roll-off that they provid...

Expert Review

Recording-microphones.co.uk
23 March 2009
  • Excerpt: The Sennheiser 421 is a large diaphragm dynamic microphone that came out originally in the early 60s and quickly became known as a really good sounding robust mic that could handle high spls. It can handle just about anything from vocals to brass but has established itself as a microphone that is great for toms and bass instruments but it's also fantastic on rock guitars.
