Review: Sennheiser 400 MKE shotgun microphone

I selected this microphone for my China trip  due to its very long battery life of about 300 hours, ease of  obtaining and changing its AAA battery, build quality, small form factor and sound quality. The “on” indicator light is only lit momentarily when powering up (which I don’t like), but I feel free to leave the unit on for an entire session to be sure it’s activated when beginning clips. Wind noise has so far not been a problem, although I did bring the deadcat for this mic.

It also fits all standard fishpoles such as the Que Audio with shock absorber which I brought here, making booming easy. I like the shock mount on this microphone- simple , unobstrusive and effective.

One caution- be sure to do sound tests especially if not monitoring levels and pitch with headphones, to ensure proper level and low band cutoff settings for a particular environment.

I highly recommend the Sennheiser for travel.
