MKH 8070

Long shotgun microphone. Ideal for major broadcast and sporting events. Extreme directivity, reliably capturing distant sounds even under the toughest sonic and climatic conditions. Extremely weather-proof.



The long shotgun microphone MKH 8070 was especially designed for picking up distant sources of sound in best quality. Its very natural sound makes it the ideal choice for major broadcast and sporting events. Featuring extreme directivity and a pronounced lobar pick-up pattern it will reliably capture that magic moment from a distance, even under the toughest sonic and climatic conditions. The MKH 8070's special design ensures attenuation of off-axis sound without coloration. Like all mics of the 8000-family it can be easily combined with the MZD 8000 digital module, turning it into a full-fledged digital microphone.
