The MK 4 is a large-diaphragm true condenser microphone for professional studio recordings. Featuring fine resolution and outstanding sound quality, the MK 4 is easy to handle and excellent value for money, making it an ideal choice for professional project studios and home recordists. It features a 1-inch true condenser capsule based on the acoustics of the e 965 high-end vocal mic, optimised for recording. The MK 4 is made in Germany, its transducer being manufactured in the same clean room as all high-end Sennheiser condenser capsules.
Versatility is king
If you’re looking for a mic that can do it all, search no further. From acoustic guitars to vocals and even drum overheads, the MK 4’s frequency response has been tailored to ensure a natural reproduction of the sound source, making it ideal for any home or project studio. It’s ability to accurately reproduce such a wide range of sounds is thanks mostly in part to its 1” true condenser capsule. No frills, no gimmicks. Just solid engineering and an elegant design.
What makes the capsule so special?
The MK 4 features a 24-karat gold-sputtered diaphragm at the heart of its 1” true condenser capsule. Sounds like fancy marketing copy, right? While it may be, the MK 4 is designed this way for a reason. As it turns out, gold is an excellent conductor for electrical signals and also prevents corrosion over time. Factor in the cardioid polar pattern and you’ve got yourself a single microphone that’s ready to record anything you put in front it.
