The MKH 8070
The MKH 8070
The MKH 8070 is a gun microphone from the modular MKH 8000 microphone series
that convinces with its excellent directivity and especially natural sound. The
microphone’s special design ensures that off-axis sound is attenuated without colorations. The MKH 8070 is especially suitable for distance recording situations, e.g.
in film and TV, both in the studio and outdoors.
The microphone operates on the RF principle that has been used by Sennheiser for
more than 50 years, now brought to highest level of perfection. Among the many
advantages of this principle are an extremely low inherent self-noise, the capability to handle high sound pressure levels without distortion and a high resistance
to adverse climatic conditions.
•
Lobar pick-up pattern
•
Very natural sound
•
Off-axis sound is attenuated without colorations while a uniform sound
structure is maintained
•
Exceptionally low inherent self-noise prevents masking of delicate sound
structures
•
Symmetrical transducer technology ensures extremely low distortion
•
Transformerless and fully floating balanced output: no coupling of spurious signals, minimal distortion
•
High output signal voltage ensures interference-free signal paths
•
Rugged metal housing with non-reflective Nextel coating
•
Extremely weather-proof due to high-frequency circuit
•
Can be used as an analog or – with the digital module – digital microphone
•
Versatile use due to the extensive range of accessories available for the
MKH 8000 series, e.g.:
– MZD 8000 digital module
– MZF 8000 filter module
– Windshield systems
– Shock mounts
A list of accessories can be found on the MKH 8070 product page
at www.sennheiser.com. For information on suppliers, contact your local

Putting the MKH 8070 into operation
Connecting the microphone
Connection data of the MKH 8070:
•
48 V ± 4 V phantom powering (P48, as per IEC 61938)
•
XLR-3 connector, balanced
To connect the MKH 8070 to a mixing console or recording device:
왘 Connect the socket of the microphone cable to the microphone.
왘 Connect the connector of the microphone cable to the mixing console or
recording device.
Attaching the microphone
왘 Select the suitable mounting thread:
– Without thread insert: 5/8” thread
– Thread insert: 3/8” thread
왘 Screw the microphone clamp 4 to a stand.
왘 Place the microphone with its back end into the microphone clamp: Make sure
that the lateral slots are not covered.
왘 Orient the microphone together with the microphone clamp and fix them by
screwing the wing screw tight.

Using the windshield
The windshield changes the sound only slightly, but attenuates wind noise by
approx. 25 dB.
왘 Place the MZW 8070 foam windshield 1 over the microphone head 2 so that
all lateral slots are covered.

Using optional modules
Using optional modules
You can retrofit and extend the microphones of the modular MKH 8000 microphone series by using optional modules.
The MZF 8000 filter module
The MZF 8000 filter module has been specially designed for broadcast and film
applications. It effectively filters out interference caused by infrasound, such a lowfrequency wind and handling noise.
왘 If necessary, disconnect a connected XLR cable in order to not distort the cable
and to avoid short-circuits.
왘 Unscrew the microphone head 2 from the XLR module 3.
왘 Screw the MZF 8000 filter module 4 at a suitable place in the audio signal
chain between microphone head and XLR module.

Using optional modules
The MZD 8000 digital module
The MZD 8000 digital module is an A/D converter for all microphone heads of the
MKH 8000 series. The sound of the MKH 8000 series is converted to digital directly
at the microphone head, ensuring that the warm, natural, yet clear and powerful
sound of the microphones is maintained in full quality along the entire signal chain.
The MZD 8000 digital module eliminates cable losses and, most importantly, features a converter and surrounding circuitry that have been optimally matched to
the microphone.
왘 If necessary, disconnect a connected XLR cable in order to not distort the cable
and to avoid short-circuits.
왘 Unscrew the microphone head 2 from the XLR module 3.
왘 Screw the MZD 8000 digital module 5 to the microphone head.

Transporting the microphone
Transporting the microphone
왘 Let the microphone dry if you used it under extreme climatic conditions.
왘 If necessary, remove the windshield or take the microphone out of the basket
windshield.
왘 Slide the microphone into the transport tube.
Cleaning and maintaining the microphone
CAUTION! Damage to the product due to liquids!
Liquids entering the product can short-circuit the electronics or
damage the mechanics. Solvents or cleansing agents can damage the
surface of the product.
