Description

The Sennheiser MKH 8060 supercardioid short shotgun mic is your ticket to great professional production sound, with amazing ease-of-use. Sennheiser’s short shotguns have been fixtures on location and soundstages worldwide for decades, and they know a thing or two about production audio. The MKH 8060’s diminutive size lets you boom or camera mount, as the shot dictates. Get into tight spaces on the set, and if a shot (or an entire production) calls for a camera-mounted mic, you can still capture the same world-class audio – with the Sennheiser MKH 8060.

Sennheiser MKH 8060 Supercardioid Short Shotgun mic at a Glance:

  • Petite size is perfect for camera-mounting as well as booming
  • Off-axis sound is attenuated without colorations
  • Exceptionally low inherent self-noise gives you crystal-clear production audio

Petite size is perfect for camera-mounting as well as booming

Due to its diminutive size (only 5.7 inches in length), the Sennheiser MKH 8060 has the agility to get into tight production spaces and capture first-class pro audio. Boomed or camera-mounted, the MKH 8060 will become your versatile goto production mic.

Off-axis sound is attenuated without colorations

Sennheiser MKH 8060 effectively attenuates off-axis sound without coloring your audio. Even after the director calls “Action,” production sets are noisy affairs – especially on location. Unless you’re Spielberg and can suspend air traffic for a shot, as a production mixer, you’ve got a fair amount of ambient environmental noise to contend with. Once you record with the MKH 8060, you’ll have a new best friend.

Exceptionally low inherent self-noise gives you crystal clear production audio

Ultra clean dialog – that’s what you’ll get with the Sennheiser MKH 8060. Sennheiser short shotguns are an industry standard for a reason – and they just keep getting better! The MKH 8060 serves up crystal-clear dialog, sound effects, ADR, Foley – whatever you’re capturing, you couldn’t make a better short shotgun mic choice than the Sennheiser MKH 8060.
