Whether used on a boompole or attached to a camera, the Sennheiser MKH 8060 moisture-resistant short shotgun microphone can help you achieve superb audio capture in demanding conditions for your next professional film, TV, or location recording. Mix-ready sound quality is provided by its sharp directivity, low noise, and high output. Plus, there are no controls to worry about; the MKH 8060 delivers the reliability you need for high-pressure gigs.

The microphone exhibits a supercardioid polar pattern at low to midrange frequencies and transitions to a lobar pattern in high frequencies, providing uniform attenuation of 10 to 20 dB from 125 Hz to 1 kHz between 90° and 120° off axis. The rejection pattern for high frequencies is also consistent, further contributing to the mic's transparent, undistorted off-axis tone. Your dialogue, foley, and sound effects can be recorded with full dynamics and clarity, thanks to the MKH 8060's wide frequency response, transformerless output, and high SPL handling.
