Audio specialist Sennheiser adds the new MKE 200 to its portfolio of audio-for-video microphones. The mini-microphone is designed for easy on-camera use with DSLRs and mirrorless cameras as well as mobile devices, where it ensures clean and crisp audio and gives that professional touch to video clips.
According to Vipin Pungalia, Director, Professional Segment, Sennheiser India, “We are thrilled to launch of Sennheiser MKE 200 on camera microphone in India. Over the past few years, we have witnessed a significant rise of content creators in India. Due to this, Audio for Video segment has seen a growing demand for wireless audio devices. Capturing high quality sound is imperative to garner subscribers and followers. India currently has over 1,200 channels with more than a million subscribers. Moreover, most cameras and smartphones sold today come with not so impressive audio features. Keeping this in mind, Sennheiser introduced MKE 200 on camera microphone which provides a crystal-clear recording without any background voice. We have seen phenomenal response globally and look forward to seeing how consumers respond to this.”
The MKE 200 features a directional design which captures the sound of your subject while rejecting unwanted background noise. To minimize any handling noise, the microphone is fitted with a clever internal shock-mount which acoustically decouples the capsule from the housing. To protect from wind noise, Sennheiser engineers designed the MKE 200 with an integrated layer of protective mesh inside the housing. This protection is further enhanced by using the included furry windshield when filming outdoors. The MKE 200 features a compact, sleek design with a stylish finish thanks to a fully integrated shock-mount and built-in windscreen. Battery-free operation and a lightweight design allow for optimal gimbal performance.
The MKE 200 comes complete with a furry windshield, two locking connection cables for DSLRs or mirrorless cameras (3.5 mm TRS cable) and mobile devices (3.5 mm TRRS cable) plus a draw-string pouch for storage. The MKE 200 will be made available exclusively at Amazon.com from 28 September 2020 at INR 8490.
