Sennheiser's best dynamic mic for live vocals just got better. The super-cardioid MD 431 II has a custom-tailored frequency response to achieve added transparency. A nearly frequency-independent polar pattern offers incredibly high gain before feedback and provides uncolored off-axis response. Its new rugged housing has a steel-mesh grille, a shock-suspended capsule, and a hum-bucking coil. It features a noiseless, magnetic reed on/off switch which is recessed in its handle, and internal electronics for refining proximity effect.
Exceptionally good feedback rejection
Shock mounted capsule provides very good rejection of handling noise
Hum compensating coil
Integral pop filter
On/off switch (reed switch) can be locked in the 'ON' position if required
We use these and the e965s for our singers. All are very good, but on some voices either one might be better than the other.
CONSUMER ALERT FOR WIRELESS MICROPHONE SYSTEMS
Most users do not need a license to operate a wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating a microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones
