  • Summary: What's to say.... Sennheiser makes the Best most durable mics out there! They are "little puppy dogs", so don't be surprised. Seller was excellent. for others with these models am getting a quote on WindCutters (a brand name) mic muffs.

Smaller IS better!

  • Summary: I have owned several of the Sennheiser MKH- series condenser microphones for several years. One complaint in live recordings is that they do stick out, in spite of their black finish. I saw a good deal for a pair of MKH8040 and decided to buy them. Not only are they now modular (which means potentially fewer components to buy), but they are really small!

Superb transparent precision

  • Excerpt: These are exquisite gems. Their finish, numbered, solidity promote them to pride of place in my microphone cabinet. They are small and, in conjunction with their purpose-made mic stands, look divine when they actually get in shot. In action they are so true that I am at a loss where to or how to equalise or improve the recording - they are so true and transparent. They are enormously versatile having used them for the clash, ride and high hat in a drum kit.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Lightweight, Versatile

Excellent for choral recording

  • Excerpt: I use the MKH-8040ST set with Korg MR-1000 recorder for organ and choral concerts. Small size, and extended frequency response on both ends of audio spectrum results in very accurate recordings. No negatives come to mind.
  • Pros: Quiet, Simple Use
