Thanks for the write up and audio examples. 0333 240 8185 Congrats! Just pulled the trigger on a new 416 that B&H had on sale for $599, less than some are going for used on eBay. I would love to try out other Sennheiser mics going forward. my apologies, well I was right about one thing - it was a great review! The first result was that The shotgun was on a mic stand right next to the camera in this test, so the audio in all video clips below was recorded on mics that were the same distance away from my noggin. But I still love my NT2-A:). Then I remembered that I have a bit of EQ permanently set on my preamp to reduce the lows and increase the highs. ), Wow Chuck. That just goes to show you how much of audio is in the ear of the beholder (do you "behold" with ears?). You must have gotten in just under the wire. I'm going to check that right now. just one question about mkh 416: Try Prime. Really?! The Sennheiser MKH 416 shotgun mic is - how shall I put this - officially freaking awesome! You should look at the Neumann (Sennheiser’s sister company) for something along the lines of a TLM 103 (which is also excellent for voiceover). I have a Neumann TLM 103 and just recently borrowed a Sennheiser MKH 416, I use a John Hardy Preamp and the the Neumann Sounds awesome without the preamp i go through a Focusrite Forte and it still sounds great. I'm jealous:). If you feel my problem help a guy out please. And I listened to a full voice-over job I did with the 416 while I had it for review, and over a period of several minutes, the difference did weem to be more apparent. For video 3 using the foam windshield that came with the mic, the wind noise was noticeably less of a problem. Also the Rycote Softie Windshield worked magic at reducing wind noise for outdoor video use. One of the things I like best about it is that it resists plosives more than a large diaphragm condenser. Thanks for telling me! Great news. Let me know. The only thing I probably wouldn’t use it for is music/singing. Anyway, the MKH sounds incredible even in a small room, despite what others may say or think. What is the maximum Sound Pressure Level (SPL) for the MKH 416? But my question is, how far away from the speaker, or how close you place the mike? The 416 is also different from regular condensers in that it uses something called RF biasing rather than the more common DC-biasing. Student life, im broke and the mics expensive. Also, your audio clips aren't playing for me. I heard LDCs are very sensitive and they are not forgiving at all when it comes to ambient noise.

For final video we used the Rycote Softie Windshield. $599? So I bypassed the EQ on the preamp and that took care of the sibilance issue with the 416. Otherwise it would be my primary mic for all my voice-over and video work. I did notice in the first test that the 416 produced a little more sibilance (the high hissy "ssssss" frequencies) than I normally like. I did that because the Rode sounded a bit heavy in the low end without it. I'm jealous:). I was actually planning to buy one to have but i was really dissapointed so I went through my audio interface and still that same muddy sound. You can minimize the small-room effect(s) by following that link in my previous reply. The polar patter is hyper cardioid which means that it basically only record what’s directly in front of it and is not very sensitive from all other directions which makes it perfect for film or voice over (you don’t want all the extra noise around you!).
