OmnidirectionalSennheiser Electronics Corporation MKH 8020

Omnidirectional Pencil Condenser Microphone

The MKH 8020 is part of Sennheiser’s modular 8000 series. This mic is a short omnidirectional pencil condenser, one of three in the 8000 series (see also 8040 cardioid and 8050 supercardioid modules).

The MKH 8020 is sold as a complete microphone, as a stereo set, or just as the head module (MKHC 8020).

The 8020 frequency response is nominally flat from 10–20kHz. On-axis pickup extends to 70kHz. Off-axis pickup tapers in response above 3kHz.

The 8020 is an RF condenser design, with high sensitivity, low noise, extended bandwidth and excellent weather resistance. The mic is transformerless with a fully floating balanced output.

The MKH 8020 consists of:

  • MKHC 8020 microphone head
  • MZX 8000 XLR module
  • MZQ 8000 microphone clip
  • MZW 8000 windshield

The Sennheiser Electronics Corporation MKH 8020 is also known as: MKH8020.
