Sennheiser introduced new color and connector options for the MKE 1 small clip-on microphone. In addition to the traditional black and beige models, the MKE 1 is now available in white and brown. Sennheiser also announced a new accessory set for the MKE 1, which includes the requirements for attaching the microphone in a variety of applications.
"We added a white version of the MKE 1 microphone to the portfolio especially for our broadcast customers," said Robb Blumenreder, channel manager for professional systems at Sennheiser, in a statement. "The brown version is ideal for theater applications."
All of the microphone versions of the MKE 1 will now also be available with a screw-on 3.5 mm jack plus, in addition to the versions with Sennheiser three-pin connectors and unterminated cables.
"The expanded selection of connectors allows the MKE 1 to be used by the many Broadway theaters and broadcasters using the evolution wireless series," Blumenreder added in a statement.
The MZ 1 accessory set comes in a transparent, compartmentalized box that includes different clips for securely attaching the microphone, as well as various accessories for protection against wind.
"With this flexible set, the sound engineer has everything readily at his fingertips and can reliably attach the MKE 1 for every situation," Blumenreder said in a statement. "The accessories are protected in the box and are clearly visible from the outside for added convenience."
The set includes two mini clips, two "Dracula" mounts, two small magnetic mounts including a lanyard, and two mini clamps that can be rotated 360 degrees, along with a cover-up made of soft plastic that surrounds the microphone, providing protection when affixed in a concealed manner.
All clips and mounts are available in black and white. For added protection against wind noise, the kit also includes two windshield baskets in black and beige, and four foam windshields in black, white, beige, and brown. According to the company, the windshield basket reduces wind noise by up to 22 dB, and the foam windshield on the small basket reduces noise by 10 dB. All of the accessories can also be ordered individually as spare parts.
The MZ 1 accessory set and the new MKE 1 color and connector versions are now available.
