Summary: I like this mic on vocals, a lot. Sennheiser now being owned by Neumann, I've read that there is some definite TLM influence on the MK 4. I don't know about those mic's, but this one has a very expensive-sounding low end,a flexible proximity effect, and a nice clarity to the top, with no distortion...
Excerpt: We use this mic for television commercial production voice overs. Its solid with terrific response and great sound! I'm not a huge fan of the blade mount but for the price and quality; I'd take it anyday over more expensive alternatives.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Summary: This is a FANTASTIC microphone - I recorded a quartet last week with it, and I love it! It tends to like to be used CLOSELY (1-2 feet away), and can change the sound a bit when used off-axis or further away, but, it's well worth your investment if you're recording vocal music or high-quality...
Summary: Aloha, this time I want to give you some quick impressions on the Sennheiser Mk 4 large diaphragm cardioid microphone that just arrived in my studio. I use several older dynamic Sennheiser mics and I usually like what they do and the quality of their products.
Dynamic mic with warmth and depth for Jazz Guitar, and much more!

Summary: There is disagreement in the guitar community as to whether or not this is a great recording mic. I bought mine to record Jazz. I couldn't be happier. The sound is rich, warm, and sweet. Is it worth the extra money when a SM-57 is a third the price? I say yes if you can.
