  • 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

  • Summary: Endlich etwas in der klanglichen Liga zwischen Neumann und Schoeps. Nicht ganz so dunkel wie KM140/KM184 nicht ganz so hell wie ein CMC6 mit MK4, eben zwischen drin. Der Grundcharakter wirkt natürlich und plastisch, das Grundrauschen ist völlig irrelevant für kritische Aufnahmen im Diffusfeld. Abgesehen davon - die Verarbeitungsqualität ist einwandfrei, das Finish völlig Gala-/Orchestertauglich auch nicht ganz unerheblich ...
