  • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
  • Symmetrical transducer technology ensures extremely low distortion

  • Switchable -10dB pad
  • Black, anodized light metal body

Sennheiser MKH 50-P48 applications

The super-cardioid MKH 50 offers a higher attenuation of diffuse-field and lateral sound than the cardioid microphone. It is principally designed for use as a soloist’s or spot microphone for applications requiring a high degree of side-borne sound muting and feedback rejection. The directional characteristics are frequency-independent.

A maker of studio-standard microphones for decades, you can’t go wrong with Sennheiser’s MKH 50-P48 supercardioid condenser mic. For more information, call or chat online with your Westlake Pro Sales Consultant today.
