Sennheiser Debuts White, Brown Versions of MKE 1 Mic

Sennheiser’s MKE 1 microphone is now available in white and brown, in addition to the traditional black and beige, and a new accessory set contains everything required for securely attaching the company’s smallest clip-on mic in a variety of applications.

“We added a white version of the MKE 1 microphone to the portfolio especially for our broadcast customers,” says Robb Blumenreder, channel manager for professional systems at Sennheiser Electronic Corp. “The brown version is ideal for theater applications.”

All the versions will now also be available with a screw-on 3.5mm jack plug, as well as with Sennheiser three-pin connectors and unterminated cables.

The MZ 1 accessory set comes in a transparent, compartmentalized box with different clips for securely attaching the microphone, plus accessories for protection against wind noise. Included are two mini clips, two “Dracula” mounts, two small magnetic mounts with a lanyard, two mini clamps rotatable by 360 degrees, and a cover-up made of soft plastic that surrounds the microphone.

All clips and mounts are available in black and white. For added protection against wind noise, the kit also includes two windshield baskets (black and beige) and four foam windshields in black, white, beige, and brown. The windshield basket reduces wind noise by up to 22 dB, and the foam windshield on the small basket reduces noise by 10 dB. All accessories can also be ordered individually as spare parts.

The MZ 1 accessory set and the new MKE 1 color and connector versions are available now. They are being exhibited at NAB, Booth C2228.
