Sennheiser MKE 1-EW-3 mygga, beige mikrofon, TRS anslutning
If you are looking for a super-compact and robust lavalier microphone with a great sound, the Sennheiser MKE 1 is a popular option. The condenser lavalier registers the sound in its direct environment beautifully and it is well protected against sweat and ambient noise. The MKE 1 comes in different versions, whereby this MKE 1-EW-3 has a beige (light skin tone) coating. Furthermore, it is equipped with a cable of 1.6 metres with a lockable TRS connector. This connector makes the MKE 1-EW-3 fit for the beltpack transmitters from the Evolution Wireless (EW) series by Sennheiser.
The sound of the MKE 1-EW-3
The microphone capsule of the Sennheiser MKE 1-EW-3 has a diameter of only 3.3 mm and an omnidirectional pickup pattern. As the diaphragm is so very small, it has a quite linear frequency range of 20 to 20,000 Hz. The microphone can handle a sound pressure of no less than 142 dB. This means that the sound won't get distorted easily and everything is registered perfectly, be it speech, vocals, string or brass instruments.
Sweat can be extremely detrimental to the life span of a microphone and therefore optimal protection is warranted. Thanks to extensive preparatory research, the diaphragm of the MKE 1 is very well suited for heavy-duty circumstances. A special mesh and multifunctional capsule offer extensive protection against moisture and wind noises. Only your desired sound is registered. The Kevlar-reinforced cable minimises contact sound. All in all, the MKE 1 is a reliable, durable lavalier microphone that produces a great sound.
