The best mic I've owned to date. I'm not an audio expert, but an enthusiast. I needed a mic for dialogue indoors and I sprung for the staple MKH 50. It was an excellent decision. Testing it next to high end shotgun mics it blows them away.

We use this mic for recording vocals on a boompole during client interviews and dialogue from narrative projects.We were using the Rode NTG-3 shotgun, which is still a great mic, but the tone and richness from the Sennheiser is noticeably superior.The barrel of the MKH-50 is realy short, only 6, so...
