Every sound detail is captured perfectly with the Sennheiser MKE400. This microphone gives you maximum control over the capture radius, as you can set this yourself. The sound is free of white noise and contact noises, thanks to the shock mount and wind cap. The MKE400 filters out ambient noise. Power isn't a problem either as 1 AAA battery is good for 300 hours of operating time. Any compatible photo or video camera with a hot shoe and a 3.5mm microphone port can now be provided with optimal sound.
