Product Description

In a world where low-quality side address condenser microphones are all too common, Sennheiser is proud to introduce the Sennheiser MK 4 studio condenser microphone. MK4 is Sennheiser's first large-diaphragm studio condenser microphone. The Sennheiser MK4 features a 1-inch true condenser capsule, optimized for project studio and home studio applications.

Sennheiser designed the MK 4 to provide maximum sound quality at a very competitive price point, focusing on exactly what it takes to make an excellent studio microphone. The Sennheiser MK 4 is made in Germany, which is also unique at this price point. While the Sennheiser MK 4 is chiefly designed for professional use in project studios, it is also a versatile tool for all recording environments and even on stage. Due to its affordable price the Sennheiser MK4 is also an ideal choice for home recorders and musicians on a budget.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Warm sound, great for podcasting with soundproofing or quiet area."
Overall: I have a Heil PR 40 which developed a hum and was sent back to Heil where a loose ground wire was repaired free. I had purchased ART, Steinberg and Alesis low end amps and I thought the hum was from the amps. I then purchased the GAP PRE 73II and the hum still appeared. I thought the Heil couldn't possible have a hum, but I was wrong, but I'm glad I was wrong as the GAP Pre 73ii gave the dynamic Heil PR 40 a lot of strength. Also while the PR 40 was away I purchased the Senn MK4 and boy did it sound great on my GAP pre, and was warmer than the PR40. But I needed to put some acoustical material around my mic station and that helped considerably to keep down the echo of the room. I think the sound from the MK4 is warmer and will probably use it for my podcasts instead of the PR40. But time will tell and maybe an update later.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
