Designed for recording audio in film, radio, and television the MKH 416 from Sennheiser is a short shotgun interference microphone optimized for outdoor applications. It offers excellent directional control in a compact design with high consonant articulation and rejection of feedback. The unit is highly immune to humidity because of its RF condenser design. It operates as a hypercardioid at low and medium frequencies with a lobar pattern above 2 kHz.

Pressure gradient receiver with short interference tube. The RF-design yields low noise levels and high immunity to humidity and moisture. The comparatively low RF-voltage across the elements of the transducer also eliminates arcing and DC-bias creeping currents. Hypercardioid at low and medium frequency, above 2 kHz approaches lobar pattern. Rugged, suitable for adverse climatic conditions.
