The MKE 400 is a super-cardioid lobar mic with a generous frequency response between 40Hz and 20kHz. It boasts impressive side noise rejection, – great for video recordings – as well as switchable sensitivity that you can use depending on how far away you are from the source. A foam windshield is included as well, with a switchable wind noise filter onboard. Plus, the MKE 400 has a shock-mount built-in so you don’t have to worry about handling noise while you’re capturing your audio and video.
