Sennheiser announced the launch of four innovative products in India under the range of two microphone categories of Sennheiser MD and Sennheiser MM. The new products include Sennheiser MD 445, MM 445 and MD 435, MM 435- with the MD models being aimed at wired, and MM models meant for wireless series. The new product launches are apparently made to cater to the ‘distinctive sound quality’ requirements of professional artistes.
“We are excited to announce these specialized launches,” Vipin Pungalia, Director-Professional Segment, Sennheiser India, declared. “As the world is gradually trying to recover from the pandemic, many artistes are looking for solutions that will enhance their vocal performance to engage with the audience even in the loudest environment,” he said. “The four new microphones will effectively cater to the diverse needs of vocalists.”
According to him, The MD 445, the most powerful microphone in Sennheiser MD range, effortlessly cuts through loud stage sound and establishes an audibly greater proximity to the vocals while the MD 435 will capture even the softest voices of the vocalists, helping them assert the performance with a pleasing effect.
Sennheiser MD 445 and MM 445: The acoustics of the MD 445 have been tailored to modern stage set-ups with B stages and runways in front of the PA. At the core of the acoustic design is a newly developed voice coil made of lightweight aluminium-copper. Its fast-transient response ensures a very detailed, nuanced and transparent sound that is complemented by rich mid-range and bass. The sound is acoustically close, intimate and open, irrespective of how loud the instrument soundscape may be.
With its high-rejection, super-cardioid pick-up pattern, the MD 445 has enormous gain before feedback. Dynamics are wide at 146 dB(A) and the microphone can handle sound pressure levels of up to 163 dB/1 kHz.
The outstanding acoustics come with a mechanical design that’s built to withstand a life on tour: The MD 445 features a metal casing and has a shock-mounted capsule to protect it from structure-borne noise. A hum compensating coil protects the microphone against electromagnetic interference.
For use with Sennheiser’s wireless transmitters, the capsule of the MD 445 is also available as MM 445 microphone head. Fitted with Sennheiser’s standard capsule interface, the MM 445 can be used with Sennheiser wireless series ranging from the evolution wireless G4 and 2000 series to Digital 6000 and Digital 9000.
Priced at ₹ 59,990, MD 445 and MM 445 microphones are available via offline trade at dealer and distributor outlets.
Sennheiser MD 435 and MM 435: With a view to bringing what was hitherto reserved for broadcast productions top-end live sound – the dynamic MD 9235 capsule – to the wired vocal microphone, Sennheiser brought to the stage the new MD 435 large-diaphragm microphone that adds the distinctly accentuated presence, sparkle and pleasant detail to every voice.
The MD 435’s lightweight aluminium-copper voice coil ensures fast transient response, resulting in a very detailed, nuanced and transparent sound, especially in the treble. The large-diaphragm microphone features very wide dynamics of 146 dB(A) and can handle sound pressure levels of up to 163 dB/1 kHz. The outstanding acoustics come with a mechanical design created to take on the rigors of life on tour: The MD 435 features a metal casing and has a shock-mounted capsule to protect it from structure-borne noise. A hum-compensating coil protects the microphone against electromagnetic interference.
The cardioid MD 435 features a very pleasant proximity effect and the microphone is very tolerant of sound hitting the capsule at different angles. It reproduces vocals clearly and confidently even in loud live settings.
For use with Sennheiser’s wireless transmitters, the capsule of the MD 435 is also available as the MM 435 microphone head. Benefitting from an improved production process, it will soon replace the existing MD 9235 capsule. The MM 435 features Sennheiser’s standard capsule interface, ready for use with Sennheiser wireless series ranging from the evolution wireless G4 and 2000 series to Digital 6000 and Digital 9000.
Priced at ₹ 49,990 MD 435 and MM 435 microphones are available via offline trade at dealer and distributor outlets.
