About: Sennheiser MKE 400 On-Camera Shotgun Mic

The MKE 400 is an on-camera shotgun microphone that combines portability and performance and sheds a whole new light on the way we capture audio for our video. Features that were traditionally accessories—like a windscreen and shockmount—are now fully integrated and perform better than ever, freeing up space in your camera bag and on top of your camera itself. And it doesn’t stop there – a low-cut filter and 3-step gain sensitivity switch help to fine-tune your sound while shooting, and a headphone monitoring output with volume control helps to dial in that sound. Lastly, the MKE 400’s supercardioid polar pattern and acoustic interference tube help to reject unwanted background noise and ensure the cleanest possible recordings, improving presence and clarity for dialogue applications.

In addition to the microphones’ built-in features, a furry windshield is included that is placed over the integrated windscreen for maximum wind protection. Furthermore, included 3.5 mm TRS and TRRS locking coiled cables secure the connection to the microphone and enable you to switch from your camera to your phone with ease.


Key Features

  • Highly directional, super-cardioid shotgun microphone for isolated and enhanced in-camera audio
  • Integrated wind protection and internal suspension mount to minimize handling noise
  • Built-in low-cut filter and 3-step sensitivity switch for added flexibility and control • Integrated headphone output jack with volume adjustment for audio monitoring
  • Interchangeable 3.5 mm TRS and TRRS connectivity for DSLR/M cameras or mobile devices
  • Also available as the MKE 400 Mobile Kit, including: MKE 400 microphone, Sennheiser Smartphone Clamp and Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod


Focus your sound – The MKE 400 features a super-cardioid polar pattern enhanced by an acoustic interference tube, providing focus and detail while rejecting unwanted background noise. Ideal for vloggers and videographers alike, this highly directional microphone will enhance your audio and bring presence and clarity to your recordings.

Record with confidence – All handheld cameras are susceptible to handling noise, so the MKE 400 features integrated wind protection and shock absorption. This combination ensures the cleanest audio recordings possible while shooting video on the move. Attach the included furry windshield for maximum wind protection in outdoor environments.

Versatile by design – In today’s world, your video recording is most likely not confined to one device, and your microphone doesn’t have to be either. Each MKE 400 includes 3.5 mm TRS and TRRS locking cables to be used with DSLR/M cameras or mobile devices.

Adapt to the situation – Let’s face it, poor acoustic environments are practically unavoidable when traveling or shooting on location. That’s why the MKE 400 comes equipped with both a low-cut filter and a 3-step gain sensitivity switch. Use the low-cut filter to remove problematic low frequency rumble or wind noise and adjust your gain sensitivity to optimize recording levels for any environment.

Before you start rolling – One of the most important steps when recording audio is to check your levels and monitor your sound. While some cameras have a headphone jack, not all do, and that’s where the headphone monitoring output comes into play. Plug any 3.5 mm headphone directly into the MKE 400 and use the integrated volume control to dial in your recordings.
