Anaheim, CA (January 13, 2011)--Sennheiser has premiered its MK 4, a large-diaphragm, true condenser microphone.
This cardioid microphone, which is manufactured in Germany, is the company's first large-diaphragm, side-address microphone.
The MK 4, with its nickel-colored finish, was developed for professional users in project studios, but can be used in other recording environments and for use on stage. The open front of the suspension mount reportedly enables the MK 4 to be positioned close to the sound source.
The microphone has a maximum sound pressure level of 140 dB, and has a self-noise of 10 dB(A). It comes with a microphone clip and a protective pouch, and optional accessories include an elastic suspension, a foam windshield and a popshield.
