Whether for musicals, live shows or broadcasting applications, the Sennheiser MKE1 performs at its best in all situations in which a microphone needs to be virtually invisible and still offer outstanding sound quality.

Featuring a newly developed, moisture-resistant protective membrane, the MKE 1 stands up better than other clip-on microphones to harsh live conditions. Its special gauze and multi-purpose cap offer additional protection from moisture so that it only picks up what it is meant to pick up - perfect sound. The ultra-thin, heavy-duty cable with molded anti-kink sleeve minimizes handling noise and makes this a microphone you can rely upon completely.

The MKE1-5 variant of this microphone features a 3 meter long cable with a pigtail lead (no connector), so this microphone can be wired to any configuration needed to meet the requirements of an already existing system.

NOTE:  Image shown above is for illustrative purposes only; this microphone has a pigtail lead and does not have a connector wired to it. For more information on this and other products, contact your Sales Representative.
