The MD 46 handheld cardioid ENG microphone includes features found in today's interview mics, but with studio quality sound, according to the company. The MD 46 has a traditional long handle, wind attenuation and off-axis rejection and is designed to possess an extended high-frequency response, warm lows, and a clean midrange. The company developed the new microphone in response to the needs of NBC and the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Omni microphones pick up everything equally, including background noise. The MD 46 cardioid interview mic focuses on the subject, increasing clarity. Designed to have low handling and wind noise, and to eliminate vocal popping, this microphone gives the ENG team an ideal interview tool.
