The MKE 400 – Be heard. Quality video is easy to come by these days, but that isn’t always the case when it comes to quality audio. Even the phone in your pocket has the ability to shoot video in crisp 4K resolution, so why shouldn’t it sound as good as it looks?
Introducing the MKE 400: Sennheiser’s takes the next step to upgrading your sound.The MKE 400 is a compact, highly directional on-camera shotgun microphone designed to isolate and enhance the audio for your video. Like the MKE 200, the MKE 400 includes built-in wind protection and integrated shock absorption, while offering even more features to ensure the best possible recordings.
A three-step sensitivity switch enables the MKE 400 the ability to provide distortion free sound in any environment, and a switchable low-cut filter focuses your audio on the most essential frequencies for clarity and speech intelligibility. Interchangeable, 3.5 mm locking coiled cables offer compatibility with DSLR/M cameras or mobile devices and a convenient headphone output allows you to monitor your levels while recording.

You are a content creator or vlogger
and you figured out video operation, but sound is not something you considered when you bought your camera. Understandably, sound is an easy thing to overlook. Here's why it's important not to overlook the importance of "good sound"…
• It is common knowledge in today's world of digital media that it is easier to watch content with poor video quality than it is to watch content with poor audio quality. That's because sound is what delivers the message - sound is what tells the story. If your video has poor audio quality, your audience is more likely to swipe away because they can't hear what you're saying. Also, the vast majority of all social media content is viewed on a mobile device, making anything higher than 720p nearly indistinguishable. This means that even lower resolution content on a small screen looks pretty decent. Unfortunately, viewing on a small screen doesn't help your audio the same way it does your video. Therefore, it is important to ensure that your voice is present and defined. • Second most cameras (and even televisions) sold today come with microphones and speakers that do not provide the best quality because the manufacturer expects you to upgrade your sound with an additional purchase . Part of the reason is to keep costs down, but it's mostly because the focus is on image quality, not sound. So, in a way, most electronics manufacturers also play a role in overlooking the importance of the sound. This is your chance to make up for it. • Finally, and above all, you don't have to be an audio engineer to improve the quality of your sound! In most cases, all you need is a directional microphone with some cool features to help enhance your sound, and just like that, you've increased your production value, leaving you with content that sets you apart from the rest.
All things considered, having quality sound may be more important than you thought, but it may also be more attainable than you imagined. Just make sure that when you're ready to upgrade your sound, you do so with the brand trusted by the pros. Now go out and create some content! Be brave, and most importantly, be heard.
