New Sennheiser Mics

Sennheiser MD 445 vocal mic

Get maximum presence and feedback rejection

The stage is incredibly loud, with the instruments seeming to acoustically close in on the vocalist… – these are challenging environments for which the new MD 445 from Sennheiser was created. The audio specialist’s large-diaphragm, dynamic stage microphone combines a direct, head-on sound with a tight super-cardioid pick pattern, providing not only maximum isolation from other on-stage sound sources but also an extremely high level of feedback resistance. With the high-rejection MD 445, vocalists can effortlessly assert their presence even in the loudest of environments.

“The MD 445 is the most powerful microphone in our MD range,” says Kai Lange, senior product manager with Sennheiser. “If its sister model, the MD 435, is the beauty, the MD 445 certainly is the beast. It effortlessly cuts through loud stage sound and establishes an audibly greater proximity to the vocals. Its direct, high-resolution sound gives vocals a totally new richness, intensity and assertiveness.”

The MD 445 microphone and MM 445 microphone head retail at $799.00 AUD / $899.00 NZD each.

Sennheiser MD 435 vocal mic

Get the famous MD 9235 capsule sound in a wired microphone

Until now, this outstanding sound has been exclusively reserved for top-end live sound and broadcast productions – now, Sennheiser is bringing the sound of its dynamic MD 9235 capsule to a wired vocal microphone. The new MD 435 large-diaphragm microphone brings accentuated presence, sparkle and pleasant detail to every voice.

“With the MD 435 cardioid high-end microphone, even soft voices will effortlessly assert themselves,” says Kai Lange, senior product manager with Sennheiser. “Singers will not only cut through the mix, their voices will also retain that natural quality and detail that the MD 9235 is so famous for.”

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.
