Versatile cardioid microphone. Especially suited to applications in rooms with poor acoustics or when disturbing sounds impinge mainly from the rear. Balanced frequency response.
The cardioid MKH 8040 is suitable for almost any application. It considerably reduces pick-up of a reverberant room. This is very helpful in rooms with poor acoustics or when disturbing sounds impinge mainly from the rear.
