Product Description

The MKH 8040 is perfectly suitable for a wide range of applications. It features a balanced frequency response throughout the whole pick-up pattern, as well as a significantly reduced pick-up of rear sound without depriving it of its natural timbre: Very valuable talents when used in rooms with poor acoustics or when disturbing sounds impinge mainly from the rear.

The MKH 8040 STEREO SET consists of two MKH 8040 microphones, two wind shields, two microphone clamps and one carrying case.
