SENNHEISER ADDS MZF 8000 FILTER OPTION TO MKH 8000 SERIES TO ENHANCE BROADCAST APPLICATIONS

mzf_8000.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – JUNE 2009: With the new MZF filter module, the MKH 8000 microphone series can provide excellent sound and climate resistance, even in tough broadcasting and film applications. The MZF 8000 filter module effectively suppresses both handling and wind noise. The signal level can be lowered via a high-quality pad allowing it to be optimally adapted to the recording equipment.

“Our MKH 8000 microphones are compact and light making them ideally suited for use with telescopic microphone booms,” explained Dawn Birr, Sennheiser’s product manager for professional products. “The filter module allows users to target and suppress unavoidable handling noise and eliminates wind noise almost completely.” For this purpose, the MZF 8000 has two low-frequency filters: a roll-off filter that can be switched on when required, and a fixed low-cut filter that effectively suppresses frequencies below 20 Hz. A switchable -10 dB pad on the filter module reduces the signal level when required.

The MZF 8000 features extremely low self-noise, which means that even delicate sound structures are reproduced exactly. When used together with the MKH 8020 (omnidirectional), MKH 8040 (cardioid) and MKH 8050 (super-cardioid) RF condenser microphones, sound recordings of the highest quality can be achieved. Like the other modules of the series, the filter module can also be used with a remote cable as a separate unit, allowing the sound engineer to further reduce the weight on the boom. The module has a transformerless and fully floating output and can therefore be easily connected to recording equipment.

The MZF 8000 filter module is now available.
