As a podcaster, the sound of your voice represents you to the world. Yes, your content matters, but your standards are represented by the quality of your audio. Clear, clean sound invites your listeners to stay and listen to you; tinny, muffled, or distorted sound can annoy your listeners and drive them away. The microphone you select is the first step in presenting your audio persona. Do you want top notch sound for your listeners? Sure, you do! Here is a microphone which will capture your voice in digital HD quality and in the format suitable for modern studio production techniques.
The Sennheiser MKH416, manufactured by Sennheiser Corporation, is known for its small size and weight, very low distortion, and excellent build quality. As a podcaster or field recording professional, you will like its broad frequency response and ability to accurately capture voices in a cardioid pattern, single channel mode. The sound is clean and natural, capturing the band of audio spectrum suited to the human voice - generally flat, but it has a bit more sensitivity between 5,000 and 15000 hz.
The Sennheiser MKH416 is so small and light, but sounds so good that television and professional film crews, podcasters, and journalists love it. The audio quality is good enough to warrant a top notch audio to digital interface to get it into editing software.
