    Sennheiser MKH-416T hiss

    Sadly I'm from Europe so I don't think I'm going to take up on that advice, but are you saying T-Powered mics can be more troublesome than P48 ? I have tried the microphone on another preamp and other microphones on the preamp, and have concluded the problem lies in the 416. And the spectrogram shows the noise is nowhere near as evenly distributed... there's a lot more noise above 10kHz, which I think indicates some form of anomaly going on...

    Sennheiser MKH-416T hiss

    Hey guys, I bought a second-hand Sennheiser MKH-416T a while ago and have come to realize that it has prominent hiss above 10kHz. Take a look at this spectrogram. I sent the microphone to my local Sennheiser representatives for repair but got it back “without any detected malfunction”. Is this hiss to be expected? I had to spend precious time on my latest film removing that damn hiss, which – luckily – isn’t present in a real critical frequency range, but still it’s audible and annoying. Any insights on how to handle this problem? Thanks a lot!
