Sennheiser MKH 416
Alex Figueiras 17.05.2013
The 416 is one of the most common microphones found on-set for TV, documentaries, and amateur film productions. This is for good reason; the capsule is solid, with a rugged steel frame that's both light and sturdy allowing it to take a few hits on a busy set.

The quality of sound produced by the microphone is crisp and clean. The circuitry is well made; with no offset or buzz when fed 48v phantom power. When utilised as a sync microphone it performs really well, with nice isolation on the front axis.

A word of advice; this microphone's isolation is very, VERY effective, so much so that you may find you'll need some practice keeping it trained on the sound source if you're using it with a boom, before you get the sounds you're after.

In love with this microphone!
TommySpanishVO 01.04.2019
A few days before receiving this microphone at home (delivery was super fast!) I didn't even know it existed. I was researching about microphones for professional voice-overs in home-studios with far-from-ideal acoustics (noise from the street) and this one came up. It turned to be the right choice for me. I've been asking clients for feedback on the sound of my recently upgraded home-studio, their answer says it all: excellent.

One of the best broadcast mics for on-field use and shootings.
Professional sound, perfect with quality and durability.
I have 10 of these for years. Didn't had any kind of problem.
This is alfa and omega for professional broadcast sound and field work wordwide!

Industry standart for a reason
Anonymous 08.09.2016
Microphone build quality is superb. Is perfect for any weather condition and it has far better response than Rode ntg 3. I use it with rode carbon pole and blimp mkII and it is very budget frendly high end sound recording kit.

Cuts through like butter
ScottyUK 28.01.2023
I bought the 416 on the recommendation of other voiceover friends in the US who use this as their main workhorse. It's the perfect mic to cut through the mix and sounds fantastic for broadcast.

The best mic for video
LucaVar 25.07.2022
This is the best mic for video I've never used: the build and sound quality are superb and the rejection of ambient sounds is incredible. Please keep in mind, to achieve the best results, that you should use a proper boom arm to place the mic around 30cm from your subject.

Brilliant Microphone
LiamQ 10.10.2014
This Microphone excels at Voiceover recording especially when used with an Avalon M5.
I wish I had got one sooner, especially with Thomann's price.
