The Sennheiser MKE 2 ew Gold is a professional miniature lavalier microphone and an industry favorite among field audio engineers, broadcast engineers and film crews. This mic has the smallest head and makes it easier to hide on your talent, it is robust and sweat proof. It can be used with our Sennheiser EW100 radio mic kits or directly into the Tascam mini lavalier dual recorder. With a wide frequency and high sensitivity response, the MKE 2 lavalier is developed for crucial audio reproduction of vocals and instruments. Its omnidirectional polar pattern provides an even frequency response throughout the perimeter of the microphone.
The result minimizes handling noise caused by clothing, while providing accurate, transparent audio fidelity without noise. The MKE 2 is widely favoured for its superior audio quality and miniature profile. The sub-miniature yet durable design enables the microphone to be used in stage performances, video shoots, film shoots, or anywhere an unobtrusive microphone is necessary.
