Sennheiser is offering a limited-time deal going through the end of the year where they’re giving away a free MKE 200 attachable mic if you purchase a new MKE 600 shotgun microphone. Which means you can get almost $500 worth of audio recording excellence for the cost of one of the best—and most versatile—shotgun mics currently on the market.
Let’s take a look at this deal from Sennheiser to go over what this deal is all about as well as share where you can get your order in before the offering ends.
An A-Cam/B-Cam Audio Bundle
Being promoted by Sennheiser as an A-Cam/B-Cam deal based on the use cases for these two microphones, it actually could be a great investment for anyone in the market for a good shotgun mic for their production setup who might want to make use of a fun and easy-to-use attachable camera or smartphone mic for a second angle.
The MKE 600 would be a great addition to any setup where you’re using a cinema camera or higher-end prosumer model where you really want that professional shotgun microphone sound. While the MKE 200 can either go on your second camera to help boost its internal audio recording, or you could even use the MKE 200 with your smartphone to fill in as a B-camera in a pinch.Get Your MKE 600 and MKE 200 Mics Here
