Sennheiser MKE 200 is the legendary audio maker’s newest compact on-camera mic for video creators. The tiny microphone has been specifically designed for easy on-camera use with hybrid mirrorless cameras as well as mobile devices.
Furthermore, the Sennheiser MKE 200 is capable of providing clean and crisp audio to give your videos that more polished feel. And given its target customer base, the MKE200 is quite affordable at $99 USD.
“With the MKE 200, we are offering creators the first step to upgrading their sound,” said Tobias von Allwörden, Head of Portfolio Management – Audio for Video at Sennheiser.
“Improved audio significantly increases the overall quality of your content. The MKE 200 makes this possible with its unique design which minimizes handling and wind noise. Simply attach it to the shoe mount, select the appropriate cable for your device and you’re good to go!”
Compact, Directional Design with Protective Mesh
Moreover, the new MKE 200 is equipped with a directional design, which captures the sound of your subject while rejecting unwanted background noise.
In addition, Sennheiser has installed an internal shock-mount inside the housing to minimize any handling noise. Also, an integrated layer of protective mesh adds further insulation. Furthermore, this protection is also enhanced by using the included furry windshield when filming outdoors.
Perfect for Vlogging and Social Media Content Creation
Naturally, the new MKE 200 comes with a sleek and stylish design with a fully integrated shock-mount and built-in windscreen. The battery-free operation and a lightweight design allow for optimal gimbal performance.
In addition, the mic comes complete with a furry windshield, two locking connection cables for DSLRs or mirrorless cameras (3.5 mm TRS cable) and mobile devices (3.5 mm TRRS cable) plus a draw-string pouch for storage.
What’s interesting in the design is the cable connects to the front of the mic, which is a bit strange, however, it does not look like it impedes operation even when using a flip-out screen.
