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.

Key Features

  • 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

(kinda) unhyped dynamic mic ?

I recently got a Sennheiser MD431-II and have been really impressed by it's neutrality, I've only tried it on my voice so far but it was very clear, seemed natural and unhyped and took EQ well.
