Sennheiser MKH 800 TWIN universal studio condenser microphone

  • The remote adjustability and the variable pick-up patterns make the MKH 800 TWIN a universal main microphone, soloist microphone or supporting microphone. 

  • The pick-up patterns can be set and optimised under monitoring conditions. 

  • A wide range of mixes for stereo and surround are possible (including in parallel). 

  • Saving of the microphone signals in two channels also allows an unlimited range of mixes to be realised at a later date. 

  • The high sensitivity ensures interference-free signal paths as a result of high signal levels. 

  • The inherent noise of downstream microphone amplifiers is thus of minor importance. 

  • Very low inherent noise prevents the masking of filigree sound structures. 

  • The depth of the acoustic can be heard more clearly too. 

  • The frequency response extends to 50 kHz, thus improving the resolution for complex acoustic details. 

  • The small, slim design and the optionally dark housing design (Nextel) make it visually unobtrusive.

Product Description


The MKH 800 TWIN is a universal studio condenser microphone of exceptional quality. It includes a dual capsule consisting of two symmetrical push-pull transducers with high linearity. This is a side fire microphone with the two cardioid pick-up patterns of the transducer aligned back-to-back across the axis of the microphone.

The signals of both transducers are not combined in the microphone in order to generate differing pick-up patterns but are available separately as two channels at the microphone output. This allows the pick-up patterns of the MKH 800 TWIN to be remotely adjusted. The signals can be combined in any desired way in the mixing console in order to create all pick-up patterns from omni-directional to figure-8 with an infinite number of intermediate stages.

Based on the legendary MKH 800, this microphone opens up to a new dimension of studio recordings.
