The Sennheiser MKH 8070 delivers professional sonic performance that is ready for mixing thanks to its extreme directivity, drastically low self-noise, and ultra-high sensitivity.

The Sennheiser MKH 8070 moisture-resistant shotgun microphone measures 18″ long and is designed for focused, high-quality audio capture in high-pressure outdoor environments such as sporting events and broadcast production.

The MKH 8070 was designed with the experienced professional in mind, offering the same sonic signature as Sennheiser’s other 8000-Series microphones. Its frequency response ranges from 45 Hz to 20 kHz, with a gentle rise above 2 kHz to improve intelligibility and a natural bass roll-off to reduce rumble. Its extremely low self-noise of 8 dBA and ultra-high sensitivity of -19 dB enable studio-worthy signal purity without the need for post-production noise reduction and gain boosting.

Features of the MKH 8070:

  • Lobar pick-up pattern
  • Enhanced directivity
  • Very natural sound
  • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
  • High output signal
  • Extremely weatherproof due to RF circuit
