The Sennheiser MKE 200 Ultracompact Camera-Mount Directional Microphone revolutionizes the way you capture sound, all in a compact form factor. With the Sennheiser MKE 200, capturing audio in noisy environments is no longer an issue. A directional microphone capsule brings presence to your voice while features like a built-in wind screen and shock mount keep your recordings sounding cleaner than ever before. Compact and sleek enough for your camera or your phone, this mic is sure to enhance the audio for any video you shoot.

Directional Audio – The MKE 200 features a super-cardioid capsule that provides focus and detail while rejecting unwanted background noise. Ideal for vloggers and videographers alike, this directional microphone will enhance your in-camera audio and bring clarity to your recordings.

Built-in Wind Screen and Shock Mount – All handheld cameras are susceptible to handling noise, so the MKE 200 features integrated wind protection and shock absorption. These two features combined ensure the cleanest audio recordings possible while shooting video on the move. Add the included furry windshield accessory for maximum wind protection.

Compatibility – In today’s world, your video recording is most likely not confined to one device, and your microphone doesn’t have to be either. Each MKE 200 includes 3.5mm (1/8in) TRS and TRRS cables to be used with DSLR and mirrorless cameras or mobile devices.

Audio quality is more important than you might think.

It’s commonly known in today’s world of digital media that it’s easier to watch content with poor video quality than it is to watch content with poor audio quality. That’s because audio is what deliver’s the message—audio is what tells the story. If your video has poor audio quality, your audience is more likely to swipe away because they can’t hear what you’re saying clearly. What’s more, the vast majority of Social Media content is viewed on a mobile device that renders anything higher than 720p nearly indistinguishable. This means that even lower resolution content on a small screen looks fairly decent. Unfortunately, viewing on a small screen doesn’t help your audio the same way it does your video. That’s why it’s important to make sure your voice is present and defined.


Upgrades are expected...

Secondly, most cameras (and even televisions) sold today come with microphones and speakers that leave much to be desired because the manufacturer expects you to upgrade your audio with an additional purchase. Part of the reason is due to keeping the cost down, but it’s mostly because the focus is on picture quality, not audio. So, in a sense, most electronics manufacturers also play a role in overlooking the importance of audio. This is your chance to make up for that.


Not an audio expert? No problem.

Lastly, and above all, you don’t need to be an audio engineer to improve the quality of your audio! In most cases, all you need is a directional microphone with some cool features that help to enhance your sound and just like that, you’ve increased your production value, leaving you with content that sets you apart from the rest.
