The Sennheiser MD 42 is a rugged handheld microphone designed for electronic-news-gathering (ENG) and field production (EFP) applications. The dynamic capsule features an omnidirectional polar pattern and that ensures maximum intelligibility without having the microphone pointed directly at the talker. The rugged MD 42 is built to withstand the rigours of use on the road. Shock-mounted capsule ensures low handling noise. The MD 42 is a professional choice for interviews, live broadcasts and more.
