Sennheiser MemoryMic Combo
Getting their European debut, Sennheiser and Neumann will showcase a range of media tools for tasks ranging from content creation to high-end production at IBC.
Sennheiser will preview the SK 6212 mini-bodypack transmitter for the Digital 6000 wireless microphone system. Available in early 2019, the mini-transmitter is for any broadcast, theatre or live audio show that requires an inconspicuous, ultra-compact package with the same reliable and intermodulation-free transmission as that offered by the other Digital 6000 transmitters.
Sennheiser’s new Memory Mic, a wireless microphone for smartphones, and the accompanying video app is for mobile journalists and content creators who rely on their mobile phone for quick and uncomplicated audio and video capture. The small, lightweight wireless microphone offers broadcast-quality sound and works at any distance from the smartphone.
The free Sennheiser video app offers one-touch synchronization of audio and video, sensitivity selection to optimally adapt the mic to the speaker and a mixing function to select the optimum balance between the standard audio recorded by the smartphone and the audio recorded via the Memory Mic.
Sennheiser IE 40 Pro
Sennheiser’s IE 40 PRO is the entry model in a series new professional in-ear phones. The IE 40 PRO ensure impeccable audio reproduction with warmth, detail and natural clarity, improving the artist’s focus and performance control even in difficult stage situations. The meticulous audio performance is complemented by a well thought-out mechanical design that includes a patent-pending, break-proof cable ducting.
Neumann U 67 Microphone
Sennheiser’s sister company, Neumann, will demonstrate the re-issue of the U 67 tube microphone, long recognized for its smooth sound and extraordinary versatility. The U 67 was the quintessential studio workhorse throughout the 1960s, the formative years of modern music. Built to the original specifications, the U 67 comes in a vintage case, complete with an elastic suspension, a microphone cable and redesigned NU 67 V power supply.
