The Sennheiser MKH 8020 Stereo Matched Pair
Fintan, 22.05.2013
My speciality is the recording of birdsong. I bought a matched pair of Sennheiser MKH8020's recently because I need microphones that will work in humid conditions and also be omni-directional. I have them a few weeks now and I am very pleased, they are every bit as fantastic as I had hoped for, the sound is crystal transparent.
I had wondered about noise on the 8020's as the work I do requires a lot of amplifier gain, but these mics did not disappoint, noise has never been a problem at all. I am becoming quite a fan of radio frequency microphones, their complete lack of modulation noise and distortion, the sound is noticeably cleaner and precise than normal capacitor mics. I have nothing at all negative to say, they may be really small but they are the 'real deal.' Even the foam wind shields that come with them are better than normal.
So to summarise, they have a wonderful crystal transparent sound, they will work in humid conditions where other 'normal' mics would fail, and they are small and light enough to bring anywhere and their frequency response goes up to easily fifty kilohertz, so will capture the harmonics of various crickets and grass hoppers. If it is bass you want then they have an extra octave lower than normal (Down to 10Hz). These are probably the greatest microphones on the planet, go on, buy them.

just and pure omnis.
they don't hype recordings at all, still open up space, width and depth.
built quality is great, I don't like the nextel coating though, as the microphone clip leaves a mark, whenever in use - looks worn really fast...

impressive low end and top...up to 60kHz, which is good if one wants to record in 196kHz and then transpose down. have yet to do an A/B comparison with Sanken CO-100k , but the low end seems to be represented better with the sennheiser.

Es bewahrheitet sich immer wieder: Kommt das Ausgangssignal klar, unverfälscht und detailliert daher, dann erspart man sich manch zeitraubendes Nachbessern mit EQ, Kompressor und sonstigen Tools.

Die 8020er reichen den Klang der Instrumente 1:1 weiter, nichts erscheint weggelassen oder hinzugefügt. Es ist deshalb schwer, von einem "Sound" zu sprechen. Das klangliche Ergebnis lässt sich am ehesten mit den Worten "mühelos" und "souverän" umschreiben. Schade nur, dass so grundlegende Zusatzfunktionen wie Low Cut oder Pegelabsenkung teuer hinzugekauft werden müssen...
