Product Description

The MKH 8060 offers true and natural sound in a lightweight, rugged package. Reliable under the toughest climatic conditions, the MKH 8060's symmetrical RF transducer design produces high sensitivity, low distortion, excellent transient response. Newly designed short interference tube yields a pleasing supercardioid / lobar pickup pattern, suppressing off-axis sound without coloration to create extremely natural and detailed results. Ideal for boom or camera mounting due to its compact design, the MKH 8060 is Sennheiser's first short shotgun to interface directly into digital systems via the MZD 8000 digital module.
