The Sennheiser MKE 400 is a compact, highly directional on-camera shotgun microphone ideal for vloggers and videographers that want to isolate and enhance the audio for their video.
As with the MKE 200, the MKE 400 includes built-in wind protection and integrated shock absorption and its directionality is achieved by an acoustic interference tube which helps to isolate the audio in front of the camera and reject unwanted background noise from the sides.
The MKE 400 is compatible with both DSLR and mirrorless cameras as well as mobile devices using the (included) 3.5 mm TRS and TRRS locking coiled cables.
The unit also features a cold-shoe mount with quarter-20 thread allowing for universal mounting on compatible cameras.
A furry windshield which helps to provide maximum wind protection while outdoors is also provided.
Power is supplied via two triple-A batteries providing up to 100 hours of continuous audio capture.
Other, advanced features include:
- 3-step gain sensitivity switch to ensure distortion free sound in any environment
- Switchable low-cut filter to focus audio on essential frequencies for clarity and speech intelligibility
- Headphone output with volume control to monitor your levels.
If you are planning on using the MKE 400 with a mobile device, the “MKE 400 Mobile Kit” is the better option for that. The kit includes the MKE 400 microphone, Sennheiser Smartphone Clamp and a Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod.
