Electret condenser shotgun microphone for battery- or phantom power

Developed for professional indoor and outdoor audio recordings, the MCE 85 combines superior quality and excellent polar patterns in a rugged yet lightweight aluminium housing.

The MCE 85 can be mounted to film cameras, DSLR cameras, digital camcorders or in combination with a microphone boom or as a handheld for high-quality recordings.

 Thanks to the supercardioid / lobe polar pattern the MCE 85 BA can be used to record a sound source very precisely without disturbing ambient noise. A high-quality electret condenser microphone capsule inside the shotgun microphone ensures that exceptionally precise sound reproduction. The included low cut filter can be switched on and off. It eliminates low frequencies and compensates for mechanical vibrations and proximity effect.

The MCE 85 BA can be powered from any balanced phantom source. If there is no balanced phantom source available, the microphone can be powered with a regular AA battery. The DC/DC converter ensures that the microphone signal remains constant even if the battery power starts to decrease, guaranteeing consistent, brilliant recording quality.

-                Maximum Attenuation of Ambient Noise

-                Constantly brilliant Recording Quality

-                160 h Battery Operation

-                Low Cut Filter

-                Smart Design

MCE 85: Captures sound like a telephoto lens

In the practical use the microphone has convinced us, whether distant sounds of nature or human dialogues, the MCE 85 captures the sound that matters like a telephoto lens and effectively eliminates ambient noise. The fact that it operates without any sound colouration and adequately with its wide frequency response and delicate details, of course, is a matter of honour. This also applies to its ability to attenuate low-frequency noise with an electrical filter that can be turned off.
