sennheiser mk 4 studio micIn our first mic-related update of 2011′s NAMM exhibition, Sennheiser has announced the launch of its Mk 4 Studio mic. This is the first side-addressed condenser mic from Sennheiser and promises to be in high demand. The mic is a large-diaphragm true condenser and has been designed for project studio owners. With a maximum sound pressure level (SPL) of 140dB, and only 10dB of self-noise, this fixed-cardioid mic will be an excellent choice for serious home recording use.

The MK 4 will be available after NAMM and comes complete with a microphone clip and a protective pouch. Optional accessories include an elastic suspension, a foam windshield and a popshield.
