Sennheiser MD 441-U Overview
The Sennheiser MD 441-U is a supercardioid studio dynamic microphone. Embraced by the recording industry as one of the most versatile dynamic microphones available, the MD 441-U is a proven workhorse designed for any recording application.
The microphone features a supercardioid pattern providing impressive rejection of off-axis noise due to mechanical noise, room ambiance, monitors, etc. The dynamic capsule handles high sound pressure levels and provides a wide 30 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response. This makes the microphone suitable for drums, percussion, electric guitar, horns, and other instruments with high transient (peak) response.
Adding to the versatility is a 5-position low-frequency roll-off switch and a 2-position high-frequency contour switch. The output stage features a humbucking coil, suppressing noise and hum caused by bad cables, grounding, etc.
