It's been several weeks since NAB, but Sennheiser finally sent me an MKE 600 shotty mic to review. It's not as bright or present as the ME66 / K6 module mics, but I think it has a decent enough sound, with AA powering & high-pass switch, for only $399. And you get to enjoy watching me realize that I don't belong in front of camera. Notes I forgot to add (that only we would care about): - Off-axis rejection is pretty good. I'd say the pickup is more supercardioid that it is lobar/tubular. - It doesn't handle RF that well. - Freq. response is pretty flat, with a slight incline from 2-5 KHz. - Battery life is about the same as the ME 66. Introduces about 1 dB of noise compared to 48V. - HPF - Curve indicates ~80 Hz, but I think its more like ~110 Hz. Voices become nasally.
