Sennheiser MKE1-5-3
Lavalier Microphone with Pigtails, Beige

OUR PART #  MKE1-5-3

Sennheiser's smallest Sound Pro. Whether for musicals, live shows or broadcasting applications, the MKE 1 - Sennheiser's smallest clip-on microphone - 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 moulded anti-kink sleeve minimizes handling noise and makes this a microphone you can rely upon completely.
