The MKH-8040 Compact Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Sennheiser is a professional low-profile condenser microphone for capturing vocals, instruments and ambiance in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The modular design consists of the MKHC-8040 cardioid capsule and the MZX-8000 XLR module output stage.

The cardioid capsule minimizes feedback and off-axis audio. The symmetrical transducer with two back-plates yields extremely low distortion. The wide frequency response provides exceptional detail and transparency. With its pristine audio quality and compact design the MKH-8040 is great for many applications.
