The Sennheiser MKH8050 - Supercardioid Condenser Microphone is a professional low-profile condenser for capturing vocals and instruments in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The modular design consists of the MKHC-8050 supercardioid capsule and the MZX-8000 XLR module / output stage.
The supercardioid capsule is most effective in minimizing feedback and off-axis audio. The symmetrical transducer with two back-plates yields extremely low distortion. The wide frequency response provides exceptional detail and transparency. With its pristine audio quality and compact design the MKH-8050 is ideal for soloist capturing.
