Sennheiser presents new filter module for MKH8000 microphone series
Sennheiser launched a new filter module for its MKH8000 microphone series. The filter module, the MZF 8000, suppresses handling noise and wind noise. The signal level can be lowered via a high-quality pad, thus allowing it to be optimally adapted to the recording equipment.
The MZF 8000 features low self-noise, which means that even delicate sound structures are reproduced exactly. When used together with the MKH 8020 (omnidirectional), MKH 8040 (cardioid) and MKH 8050 (super-cardioid) RF condenser microphones, sound recordings of the highest quality can be achieved. Like the other modules of the series, the filter module can also be used with a remote cable as a separate unit, allowing sound engineers to further reduce the weight on the boom. The module has a transformerless and fully floating output; therefore, it can easily be connected to recording equipment.
