Sennheiser MKH416 P48U3 Shotgun Microphone
The Sennheiser MKH416-P48U3 is a short shotgun interference tube microphone. To begin with, its excellent directivity and compact design, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection make the MKH 416 a superb all-round microphone. Additionally, the MKH416 P48U3 has a high degree of directivity making the MKH 416 a superb microphone for film and television, including outside broadcast applications.
The MKH416-P48U3 is a combination of a pressure gradient transducer and an interference tube microphone. It has a super-cardioid pick-up pattern at low and medium frequencies, whereas
at higher frequencies, there is a transition to a lobar characteristic.
Less Responsive to Wind
Due to its operating principle, the MKH416 P48U3 is relatively insensitive to wind and pop noise. The MKH416 can often be used as a soloist and broadcast microphone, without the need for an additional pop shield. However, for outdoor recordings, the use of an additional windshield is recommended to help with creating the best possible recording.
The frequency response intentionally has a slightly rising characteristic at high frequencies. The microphone has a low proximity effect and therefore provides a well-balanced sound
even when used close to the sound source.

- MZW 415 windshield
