The MK 8 offers a great solution for advanced home recording applications and project studios alike. It is the microphone for people who pour all of their passion into their audio projects. The MK 8 offers sophisticated options to sign off your sound with your own personal handwriting. The dual-diaphragm condenser microphone delivers warm and precise sound reproduction. Its five independent polar patters allow for a multitude of recording applications and sound design options.
No matter which mixing desk or recording device is used, the MK 8 matches the input sensitivity with a 3-step attenuator. Two adjustable filters compensate for the proximity effect as well as low frequency rumble or structure born noise.

The MK 8 has dual one-inch diaphragms precisely spattered with 24-carat gold. The shock-mounted capsule is accommodated within a sturdy metal housing.

Magazine Reviews
Music Tech, Feb 2015 "The Sennheiser MK 8 is a large-capsule condenser with dual diaphragms, five patterns and switches for pre-attenuation and bass roll-off. " http://www.musictech.net/2015/02/sennheiser-mk-8-review/ I Guitar Magainze "The microphone market is pretty-well saturated at all levels, from mics that cost as much as a takeaway to ones that cost as much as a car. " http://www.iguitarmag.com/magazine-editions/guitar-interactive-issue-29/reviews-/sennheiser-mk-8-large-diaphragm-condenser-mic/ Recording Mag "This is a cleanly voiced modern versatile microphone that sits nicely in league with older all-rounders such the Audio-Technica AT4050 and Shure's KSM44a." https://www.recordingmag.com/productreviews/2015/05/100.html
