More info  

The MKH 416 transformerless, RF condenser is designed as a combination of pressure gradient and interference tube microphones. Very good feedback rejection, low proximity effect, 130 dB/SPL. Rugged and resistant to changing climate conditions. Ideal for boom, fishpole, and camera mounting.

Its excellent directivity and compact design, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection make the MKH 416 a superb all-around microphone for film, radio and television, especially for outside broadcast applications.

Interference Tube Principle

Pressure gradient receiver with short interference tube

- Employs RF-technology to control residual microphone noise. Optimizing the transducer's acoustic impedance results in a further improvement in low noise performance.

- The RF-design yields exceptionally low noise levels and is virtually immune to humidity and moisture.

- The comparatively low RF-voltage across the elements of the transducer also eliminates arcing and DC-bias creeping currents.

- Hypercardioid at low and medium frequency, above 2kHz approaches lobar pattern

- Very low inherent self-noise

- High sensitivity

- Transformerless and fully floating balanced output

- Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions

- Matt black all-metal body

- Increased directivity

- Optimum S/N ratio

- Lower gain on input channels required

- Lowest noise and greatest signal stability

- Highly immune to humidity in all conditions. Extremely stable.

- Visually "low key"
