The long shotgun microphone Sennheiser 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.


Key Features
  • Lobar pick-up pattern

  • Enhanced directivity

  • Very natural sound

  • Uncolored off-axis sound

  • Exceptionally low inherent self-noise

  • Extremely low distortion

  • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output

  • High output signal

  • Rugged metal housing

  • Non-reflective Nextel® coating

  • Extremely weather-proof due to RF circuit• Nextel®- • Becomes a digital mic when combined with the MZD 8000 digital module

  • Timbrally identical with the other 8000-series microphones for optimum aural compatibility

Both condenser microphones work on the RF principle that Sennheiser has been using for 50 years and has developed to absolute perfection. The benefits are extremely low inherent self-noise, which means that even the finest sound structures remain intact, as well as high climatic resistance and low distortion with relatively high output signal voltages. RF microphones are inherently fully floating and balanced and do not require an additional balancing circuit or transformer to protect them from external interfering signals.

The MKH 8070 features an extreme directivity that enables even very distant sounds and events to be reliably recorded. For broadcasters, this microphone will be ideal for sports events, as well as for film and television recordings, both in the studio and outdoors. It is also especially useful for nature and wildlife recordings.
