Plug and Play: No Frills - Just Pure, Clear Sound
The MK 4 foregoes technical extravagance, instead focussing on providing the best possible sound quality. The true condenser, large-diaphragm microphone offers a powerful yet warm sound, which is both direct and tight with fine treble resolution.
- Large-diaphragm capsule (1")
- True condenser design
- 24-carat gold -plated diaphragm
- Full metal housing
- Capsule shock-mounted internally to minimise structure-borne noise
- Designed for project studios and stage use
- Low inherent self-noise and high maximum SPL
- Made in Germany
The MK 4 was developed for professional users in project studios. However, it is equally well-suited for other recording environments and is sufficiently resilient for use on stage. It is also a microphone that is affordable for home recordists and musicians, as it combines the key elements of a good studio microphone with an attractive price. The finest sound structures are well resolved, while sound coming from the sides is picked up without colouration, which means that it does not alter the overall sound quality. Furthermore, the microphone has a very harmonious presence, featuring vivid mids and is also highly detailed in the bass range. At the same time, typical cardioid cancellation is relatively frequency-independent, which is quite unusual for a large-diaphragm mic.
Pure and resilient
The combination of the elastic capsule mount and selectable filters reduces impact and structure-borne noise to an absolute minimum. The MK microphones feature a low inherent self-noise and a maximum sound pressure level of 140 dB. This transforms them into sophisticated listeners that deliver crisp signals, even with wide dynamics and loud sources.
Both MK microphones feature 24-carat, gold-plated 1” diaphragms that provide you with a sound that you can only obtain from a true condenser microphone.
A sound that is warm, powerful and finely resolved across the audio frequency spectrum. Consequently, the finest nuances of vocals, speech and instruments will retain their natural presence.
Despite their detailed and fine studio sound, the MK mics are incredibly rugged tools. Their compact electronics, superior materials and zinc die-cast casing ensure that they are the perfect partner for rough recording environments.
Featuring a 1 inch true condenser capsule based on the acoustics of the e 965 high-end vocal mic, optimised for recording. The MK 4 is made in Germany, its transducer being manufactured in the same clean room as all high-end Sennheiser condenser capsules.
