Summary: This is a great mic, bought it because i loved using an ME66 and the MKH416 is the next step up. All ive heard is great things about this mic and now I understand why it is the industry standard.
Summary: I have to say that this is by far the best microphone I have ever owned...not that I have owned many but I am very impressed with the sound quality. Be careful when buying though becuase it only works on phantom power...no batteries...I almost made that mistake and I bought a mixer to power it. Mixpre works well for this. Great buy! I bought it with the lower end kit and I am happy with it.
Summary: This mic has a great, rich tone which I wasn't expecting from a shotgun condenser. I use this mic in combination with a Canon XL-H1. It is my go-to mic for every circumstance. The construction is superb, but what would you expect from Sennheiser.
