The MKH 416 transformerless, RF condenser is designed as a combination of pressure gradient and interference tube microphones. Very good feedback rejection, low proximity effect, 130 dB/SPL. Rugged and resistant to changing climate conditions. Ideal for boom, fishpole, and camera mounting.

Its excellent directivity and compact design, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection make the MKH 416 a superb all-around microphone for film, radio and television, especially for outside broadcast applications.


Key Features


  • Interference Tube Principle
  • Pressure gradient receiver with short interference tube
  • Employs RF-technology to control residual microphone noise. Optimizing the transducer's acoustic impedance results in a further improvement in low noise performance.
  • The RF-design yields exceptionally low noise levels and is virtually immune to humidity and moisture.
  • The comparatively low RF-voltage across the elements of the transducer also eliminates arcing and DC-bias creeping currents.
  • Hypercardioid at low and medium frequency, above 2kHz approaches lobar pattern
  • Very low inherent self-noise
  • High sensitivity
  • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
  • Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions
  • Matt black all-metal body
  • Increased directivity
  • Optimum S/N ratio
  • Lower gain on input channels required
  • Lowest noise and greatest signal stability
  • Highly immune to humidity in all conditions. Extremely stable.
  • Visually "low key
