Sennheiser - MKH 8070 - Shotgun Microphone

The 18" long Sennheiser MKH 8070 moisture-resistant shotgun microphone is purpose built for focused, top-tier audio capture in high-pressure outdoor environments such as sporting events and broadcast production. With extreme directivity, drastically low self-noise, and ultrahigh sensitivity, the MKH 8070 delivers professional sonic performance that's ready for mixing.

This shotgun microphone exhibits a pronounced lobar polar pattern, ensuring a consistently narrow focus and transparent, undistorted off-axis tone. Its wide frequency response, transformerless output, and high SPL handling let you record the action with uncompromised clarity.

Offering the same sonic signature as Sennheiser's other 8000-Series microphones, the MKH 8070 was engineered with the experienced professional in mind. Its 45 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response incorporates a gentle rise above 2 kHz to increase intelligibility and a natural bass roll-off to mitigate rumble. Its extremely low self-noise of 8 dBA and ultrahigh sensitivity of -19 dB enable studio-worthy signal purity without requiring noise reduction and gain boosting in postproduction.

The MKH 8070 boasts a transformerless and fully floating balanced output for optimal signal integrity. Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 44 to 52 VDC phantom power, the MKH 8070 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.
