The microphone exhibits a hyper-cardioid polar pattern at low to midrange frequencies. It transitions to a lobar pattern in high frequencies. Your dialogue, foley, and sound effects can be recorded with full dynamics and clarity, thanks to the MKH 416 wide frequency response, enhanced consonant articulation, and high SPL handling. This enables studio-worthy signal purity without requiring noise reduction and gain boosting in postproduction.
Its 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response incorporates a gentle rise from 5 to 15 kHz to increase intelligibility, and a natural bass roll-off to mitigate rumble. Its low self-noise of 13 dBA and high sensitivity of -32 dB enable studio-worthy signal purity without requiring noise reduction and gain boosting in postproduction.
