Sennheiser MKH 8040 Stereoset


Due to its cardioid pick-up pattern the MKH 8040 is perfectly suitable for a wide range of applications. It features a balanced frequency response throughout the whole pick-up pattern, as well as a significantly reduced pick-up of rear sound without depriving it of its natural timbre: Very valuable talents when used in rooms with poor acoustics or when disturbing sounds impinge mainly from the rear.
